Every child born in this world adopts the religions beliefs and traditions of his forefathers, when they grow up, some of them keep following the same things blindly while others think critically and have the courage to reject all that is wrong. While on one hand, we the Muslims, and especially the shias expect people from all other religions and sects to discover the error of their ways and come to our way, but on the other hand we don’t apply the same principle to ourselves, isn’t it equally possible that we ourselves had been wrong all this time?

We say to ourselves and to others, “how is it possible that our grand scholars did not discover such simple things?”, but when a sunni makes the same argument we find it illogical, when a christian makes a similar argument we find it even more illogical. The fact is, scholars are not the criterion between truth and falsehood, because every sect and every religious group has grand scholars, and these grand scholars defend silly and vague ideas all their lives, this is why Allah (swt) never asked us in the Quran to follow scholars blindly, rather he has warned us against it in many places.

With that background in mind, we invite the readers to critically ponder upon whatever has been discussed in this blog. Go to the scholars you trust and ask them to answer these questions and if by chance their answers sound convincing then send us their answers on our email id ” shiareformist@hotmail.com “.

Inspired by the revolutionary approach of Imam Hussain (as), who gave his life trying to bring reform, we intend to sincerely reform the Muslim Ummah, specially the Shia, because we see a lot of things which are practiced but have no basis in the Quran and authentic narrations, and what has actually been stressed upon in the Quran and authentic narrations has been abandoned. So we intend to repeat the words of our beloved Imam:

أَنِّي لَمْ أَخْرُجْ أَشِراً وَلَا بَطِراً وَلَا مُفْسِداً وَلَا ظَالِماً، وَإِنَّمَا خَرَجْتُ لِطَلَبِ الْإِصْلَاحِ فِي أُمَّةِ جَدِّي صلى الله عليه وآله، أُرِيدُ أَنْ آمُرَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَأَنْهَى عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَأَسِيرَ بِسِيرَةِ جَدِّي وَأَبِي‏ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي طَالِبٍ عليه السلام

“I did not come out seeking to do evil, nor seeking to have fun, neither seeking corruption nor oppression, rather I came out to reform my grandfather’s (Prophet Muhammad (saww)) nation. I want to enjoin the good and denounce the evil, and take the course of my grandfather and father Ali Ibn Abi Talib (as)”

    Thanks for taking this approach, would like to know who are the people behind this. Is it some shia scholars or general people like myself who have these doubts and try to clear them.

      It is both critical youth like you, and scholars. And our researches are also based on works of scholars, it is not something we made up.
      But if scholars seem to have a sectarian bias and they go against the Quran, then we take the Quran.
