Nowruz is here! The Pre-Islamic, Persian-Majoosi (Zoroastrian) holiday and of course anything pagan, especially pre-Islamic Persian customs do have their deep connections with the religion of the Twelver Shias. Nowruz is the holiest day according to Zoroastrianism (Majoosism) of the year for them out of seven major holidays (the seven motif is straight from their beliefs, with Ahura Mazda co-existing with six other gods who in turn form a unity of seven, so no surprise the holiday centres now with setting out a table of seven things also called haft seen).
What many don’t know (even many Shias, heck even many Persian Shias) is that Nowruz, the ancient Zoroastrian holiday is not just some traditional holiday celebrated mostly by Iranians and Kurds (and some Afghans, even among the very secular Sunni ones), no, rather it is an ESSENTIAL part of Shiism and the biggest Shia scholars who ever lived have not just sanctified it, rather they declared it as the best day ever and ascribed loads of rubbish, fabricated an disturbing narrations to the Ahl Al-Bayt who all happen (as usual) to attack the Sahabah and the Ummah and to praise pre-Islamic Persian customs!
The first people to accept the A’maal or Fazail were the representatives of Hawzah Ilmiyyah Najaf Al-Ashraf, meaning personalities like Shaykh Tusi, then Seyed Ibnay Taus and Mohaqqiq Tusi, Syed Sharif, Allama Bahauddin Amili, Allama Faiz Kashani, and from Allama Majlisi to Shaykh Abbas Qummi (author of Mafatih Al-Jinan).
all agree on this day of celebration. Seyed Mohsin Al-Amin Amili in his Miftahal Jannat, Vol 3, pg 573, depicts a hadith from Mu’ala Bin Khanees on the Fazael of Nowruz, and has confirmed it with high authority. It’s the following:
Al-Mu’alla narrates from Imam Al-Sadiq : “Nowruz is no other day but the one we [the Ahl Al-Bayt] are awaiting the reappearance [of Al-Mahdi], for it is one of our days that was protected by the Persians and carelessly lost by you.”
Mullah Baqir Al-Majlisi (major Shia scholar of the Safavid era) mentions a narration from Musa Al-Kadhim (son of Jafar Al-Sadiq) which says: `In Nowruz Allah made a covenant with His servants to worship Him and not to allow any partner for Him. To welcome, His messengers and obey their rulings. This day is the ﬁrst day that the fertile wind blow and the ﬂowers on the earth appeared. The archangel Gabriel (a) appeared to the Prophet, and it is the day that Abraham (as) broke the idols. The day Prophet Muhammad held Ali a.s on his shoulders to destroy the Quraishies’ idols in the house of God, the Kaaba.`[…]
Their “Mahdi” (in fact the Dajjaal) will emerge on the ZOROASTRIAN holiday of Nowruz!
[Narration attributed to Imam Al-Sadiq (rahimahullah) who is free of Majoosite Rafidhism]: ‘The day of Nowruz is the day when our Qa’im of Ahl Al-Bayt (Mahdi) and the commanders [of his army] will rise. On that day Allah will make the Dajjaal appear and he will be crucified on the church of Kufa (Iraq)’. (Bihar Al-Anwar by Mulla Baqir Al-Majlisi, vol. 52, p. 308)
Kufa?? Crucifixion?? NOWRUZ???! We all know that JESUS (‘Eesa alayhissalaam) will kill the Dajjaal, not on the holy day of Shiism though, which is NOWRUZ!
So the Sahabah, their students and their students (i.e. Salaf Al-Saleh) have missed to ‘protect’ the holy (!) day of Nowruz, but the Persians managed to protect this so called holy day. Look at their audacity! How dare they ascribe a Zoroastrian holiday to Islam and the Ahl Al-Bayt! Not even the most wicked Islamic sects has ever dared to ascribe any pre-Islamic pagan Arabic holiday (there were some) to Islam!
This is how portray the Ahl Al-Bayt i.e. Imam Al-Sadiq (rahimahullah) in the Hadith above! He literally blames the Arabs for having forgotten the Majoosi holiday of Nowruz! A holiday that was never ever sanctified in Islam! Look how much Sassanian-Pre-Islamic-Persian customs have infiltrated Shiism, then they wonder why they are being called Majoos!
So Shias out there, we know it’s a shame to be a Shia, but come on, you have no choice, get up and celebrate Nowruz you pagans, and don’t forget to recite certain prayers on that day, and to take Ghusl on that day … all in the name of ‘following the Ahl Al-Bayt and the true Sunnah’ (true Sunnah!!!):
“The Islamic Centre of England” (Shias) states on its website:
[…] But Alameh Majlesi in his book Zad al Maad mentions the existence of some reports in some less known sources. One of which is the following invocation that is highly recommended to be recited repeatedly. O Moulder of the hearts and vision, O Master of the night and day, O He who changes stratagem and status, Transform our situation to the best condition The above invocation at the time of Safavids was a regular prayer for the New Year. The fact that recitation of supplications or Qur’an and performing of prayer for the coming of a new year actually did happen, itself, is a sign of the Islamisation of this festivity. […]
[…] Islamic rituals of Nowruz In Mafatih al Jinan, which in the past decades has been one of the greatest books for religious recommended acts of worship, we read that the Prayer of Nowruz is a prayer combined of recitation of Al -Fatiha, Al-Qadr, Al-Kaferoon, Al-Tawhid, Al-Falagh, Al-Nass and many other chapters of the Holy Qur’an. It is similar to a prayer which not only has the forms of Friday prayer but also the attributes of the prayers of Ghadeer Khum. Mafatih Al Jinan narrates from Imam Jafar Al Sadiq(as): `When Nowruz comes, make Ghusl (ceremonial wash) , put on your clean clothes, and fragrant yourself with best perfumes, so when you are free of all other prayers, perform a four- rakaat prayer, each rakaat one Salam and in the ﬁrst rakaat after Sura Al- Fateha ten times Sura Al-Qadr, and in the second rakaat after Al-Fateha ten times Al-Kaferoon. In the thried rakaat after Al-Feteheh ten times Al-Nass and Al-Falaq. After prayer prostrate in gratiﬁcation.` […]
they even give lectures about Nowruz and Shi’ism and they celebrate it in their wasteful golden shrines, all in the name of ‘the Islam of the Ahl Al-Bayt’
Iranian pilgrims in Iraq (which is basically occupied by Iran with the help of the Americans and Iraqi Shia puppets) celebrate NOWRUZ next to the shrine of Al-Hussein Ibn Ali (radhiyallahu anhu) in Karbala’. That’s what these heretics call ‘the Islam of the Ahl Al-Bayt, the true followers of the Sunnah’!
