Cursing (Tabari) (3)
Is it permissible if you are living in the west or a country where freedom of speech and religion is implemented in society that you can expose the enemies of Ahlulbayt using evidences against them and to condemn their actions so that sects that follow the paths of the enimies of Ahlulbayt can see the truth and develop love in their hearts for Ahlulbayt and Shias in general?
It is a must and a duty upon every Muslim to clarify the truth and expose the enemies of Ahlulbayt (a.s) in all conditions, except in a condition that will lead to his or her death.
Based on a narration in al-Kafi through a Sahih chain which says: rasoolallah (saws) said: “When you find bid’ah (innovation) and doubt/suspicion after me, do baraa’ (disassociation) from them and increase in your insults (sabihim) to them, and oppose (them) and bring evidences against them so they may not become greedy in bringing fasad (corruption) to Islam. You must warn people against them and do not learn their bid’ah (innovation). Allah will write for you hasanaat (good deeds) for this, and will raise your darajaat (levels) in the next life” Al-Kafi, Volume 2, Chapter 159, hadeeth 4. How do we implement such a narration in modern times in the west?
That Hadith is authentic, and it is to be implemented in all circumstances except in a condition that will lead to death. As the structure of the Hadith is an order from the Prophet (saww) to his nation.
It is permissible to curse the enemies of Ahlulbayt (a.s) in public, because the Quran itself is public, and Allah has cursed them in the Quran.
