A fellow named Khalid Sayed is the Head of the ANC Youth League and an MPL in the Western Cape Legislature. On Lailatul Ashuraa at the Ahlul Bait centre in Cape Town he made the following comments:
“The Khulafa-e-Raashideen and the Sahaabah are Munaafiqeen who had usurped the Khilaafah and hid their kufr.”
What is the status of the Imaan of such a person? His statements were shared widely on social media platforms.
There is no question regarding the status of ‘Imaan’ of this munaafiq Shiah who prowls in the Muslim community as a ‘Muslim’. He is the one who hides his kufr and nifaaq. This enemy of Islam has absolutely NO Imaan – not even a vestige of Imaan. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had categorically stated that those who harbour hatred and malice for his Sahaabah, in reality have hatred for him (i.e. for Rasulullah – Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
