Allah Almighty says in the Quran:
“Behold! You are those who are called upon to spend in Allah’s way…”
Imam Ibn al-Qayyim said:
“As for Jihad al-Kuffar wal-Munafiqeen, they are also four types: with the heart, tongue, wealth and one’s self (body). Jihad al-Kuffar is usually practiced with the hand, while Jihad al-Munafiqeen is usually practiced by the tongue (by refuting them and exposing their misguided ways, etc.)”
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
“Perform Jihad against the disbelievers with your wealth, with yourself and with your tongues.”
And the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) further said:
“He who performs Jihad against them with his tongue is a believer.”
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said:
“Refuting Ahl al-Bidah (i.e. the Shias and the like) is a Jihad, to the extent that Yahya ibn Yahya said: ‘Defense of the Sunnah is more excellent than Jihad in the path of Allah.’”
Shaykh al-Islam stated in another book:
When some people asked Ahmad bin Hanbal that they felt uneasy about (criticizing people) by saying that such and such is this, and such and such is that, he replied: ‘If I were to remain silent, how would the ignorant ones know the authentic from the inauthentic?’
Similarly, the innovators who introduce heretical writings which oppose the Quran and the Sunnah, and those who innovate in matters of worship, then explaining their true condition and warning the Ummah against them is an obligation by the unanimous agreement of the Muslim Scholars.
In fact, when Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal was asked whether a person who fasted, prayed and secluded himself in the mosque for worship was dearer to him than a person who spoke out against Ahl al-Bidah (i.e. the Shias and the like), he replied: “When he fasts and prays and secludes himself, then he does so for the benefit of his own self. However, when he speaks out against the innovators, he does so for the benefit of the Muslims in general, and this is more virtuous.”
So it is clear that opposing the innovators is of general benefit to the Muslims and is considered one of the types of Jihad in the path of Allah. Since purifying the Religion of Allah, and its Manhaj (methodology), its Shari’ah, and defending it from their attacks and that of their enemies is a collective obligation–a fact which is agreed upon by the scholars. For if Allah did not raise up some people to repel the harms (caused by) others, then the Religion would become corrupted. Indeed, this type of corruption is even greater than the corruption resulting from the disbelievers conquering the Muslims. This is because when the disbelievers conquer the Muslims, they do not corrupt their hearts nor their Religion, except after some time. Whereas the innovators corrupt the hearts from the very outset.

The Shias have launched a very aggressive ideological war against the Ahl as-Sunnah. After the rise of Ayatollah Khomeini, the Iranian government has spent a lot of its wealth translating propaganda books into English. Today, many of these Shia works have been reproduced online, and the Shia propaganda machine has become a cyber-juggernaut. The Shias have dominated the internet by pushing their agenda on various websites and forums.
While the Sunnis dominate the Shias in the Arabic and Urdu medium, we unfortunately lag behind in the English world. It was based on this fact that AhlelBayt.com was launched, a website that has led the charge in raising the standard of the Ahl as-Sunnah, defending the Sunnah, and becoming the vanguard of the Prophet’s wives (i.e. the Ahlel Bayt) and the Sahabah. Al-Hamdu Lillah, with the Grace of Allah Almighty, we have already begun the process of evening out the odds in the English language. So far, our nascent website has received a very positive response from the Sunni community, and we have exceeded 100,000 hits per month. AhlelBayt.com has refuted many of the key arguments of the Shias, but there are still dozens upon dozens of articles we have in queue. Unfortunately, our financial constraints have hampered our ability to churn out new articles.
We desperately need to translate certain Arabic, Urdu, and Persian books into English. This is not cheap. We need your help. Please donate generously to AhlelBayt.com so we can use that money to buy key books, hire professional translators, etc. The more money we raise, the more we can do. Open your wallets for us so that we can lift our pens and wield them as raised swords in defense of the Sunnah. It should be noted that we are looking for sizable donations from a few individuals, so be one of those key people who will help in this very noble cause. We receive emails all the time about how this site saved someone from apostasy, and Insha-Allah if you spend your wealth in the Way of Allah and donate to us, then you will be blessed with a portion of the Sawaab.
If you are interested in donating, please email us ( admin @ ahlelbayt . com ) and let us know how much you are willing to donate.
