This bizarre and foolish anti-Islamic ritual originates from the Lorestan region in Iran and has spread all over Iran and Shi’ite areas of Iraq. Of course FIRE (#Majoos) is also part of this ritual.
Instead of fighting this hideous bid’ah (heresy), Shia authorities have sanctified it and even coined technical terms for it. In Iran, it is known as گِل مالی، آیین گِل and in Iraq, it is known as شعيرة التطين which stand for ‘Mud rubbing mourning ritual’.
Imamite ‘mourning’ rituals in Iraq (exported from Iran). They refer to these zombie parades as ‘Hussaini rituals’.
The ‘proofs’ (spoofs) of the Rafidah for this foolsh ritual
How do the Rafidah justify Hindu-esque mud bath rituals, the Sunnah of swines? Well, as usual, by decontextualising narrations and superimposing their obsession with Khurafat and Ghuluw on them.
The narration of Umar (may Allah be pleased with him):
Does this require any response other than quoting the scholars of Islam?
“They (i.e. the Rafidah) are the greatest of the followers of desires, in both ignorance and oppression…”(Minhaj al-Sunnah by Ibn Taymiyyah)
They distort a narration (which is not even a Prophetic hadith) that speaks of a one-off reaction from Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) who never turned what he did into an annual pagan mud bath ritual. This is if we assume that the chain has no hidden flaws besides one of the narrators being unknown. But even at face value, the report does not prove an annual mud bath ritual!
As a side note: reading ahadith holistically will make Rafidism collapse. The very same narration they misuse mentions that the Prophet (ﷺ) took Hafsah (may Allah be pleased with her) back by the command of Jibreel (who is an infallible Angel who executes the will of Allah).
When the Prophet (ﷺ) divorced Hafsah, Allaah revealed to him: Go back to Hafsah, for she fasts a lot and prays a lot at night, and she will be your wife in Paradise. Al-Mundhiri said: this was narrated by al-Nasa’i and Ibn Majah. ‘Awn al-Ma’bood Sharh Sunan Abi Dawood, hadith no. 2283.
The narration of Ibn Abbas and Umm Salamah:
The foolish Rafidah misuse another report in defense of their Hindu-esque mud bath ritual. They literally make up obscure and bizarre beliefs and practices and then go and look for evidences in the Qur’an and Sunnah (which they will bend and distort to fit in their falsehood).
That’s how intellectually bankrupt the Rafidah are. They resort to a dream by two fallible companions, Ibn ‘Abbas and Umm Salamah respectively (are the Rafidah Shiat of Ibn ‘Abbas or Shiat of Umm Salamah?) to justify mud bath mourning rituals that they conduct on an annual basis.
The narrations do not include any recommendation, let alone a command for one to spread dust on themselves, or mourn the death of Hussain (may Allah be pleased with him), but even if it did, it would still not be evidence for such a practice, since it is only a dream. The Shia grand scholar ‘Ayatollah’ Khoie said:
سؤال 1314: إذا رأى مؤمن في منامه النبي صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم أو أحد الأئمة عليهم السلام وهم يأمرونه بشئ فهل يكون قولهم في المنام حجة يجب امتثاله، فهم القائلون بأن من رآهم فقد رآهم حقا فإن الشيطان لا يتمثل بهم؟.
الخوئي: لم يثبت الحجية بنفس الرؤيا والأمر فيها
صراط النجاة – الميرزا جواد التبريزي – ج ١ – الصفحة ٤٦٨
Question 1314: If a believer saw the Prophet (ﷺ) or one of the Imams in a dream and that they commanded him to do something, would it be obligatory to follow, since it is said that the Shaytan does not appear in their form?
Al-Khoei: Orders in dreams are not considered proof.

Besides, dust on the head and beard is different from rubbing oneself in mud, like pigs, one doesn’t need to be a genius to understand this. However, this seems too hard to understand for the heretics at Bayat Al-Ghadir/RevisitingTheSalaf who went out of their way and included images of Shias covered in mud like Hindus and pigs only to get humiliated by TwelverShia.net who debunked all their arguments.
As you can see, basically ANY pagan ritual can be 100% permissible, as long as you don’t forget to cite Imam Hussain. That’s the evil evolution of Shi’ism. Imagine how this sect and its followers will look in a hundred years! Indeed, Imamism and its clergy thrive on superstitions and paganism in the name of the Ahlul-Bayt.
