Dr. Esam Al-Emad Wahhabi scholar which converted to Shia-Islam
Dr. Esam Al-Emad , a Wahhabi cleric who converted to the Shia Enlightenment religion, said in an interview referring to his family characteristics: My family is one of the most well-known Yemeni families politically and religiously, and I grew up under the tutelage of my uncle, Sheikh Abdul Rahman al-Emad, and learned the ideas of Salafism and Wahhabism.
Emad emphasized: Wahhabis are trying to bring inappropriate proportions to the Shias through satellites, books, pamphlets and publications and make the Shia image look negative, and in this way they have used a lot of expenses and are trying to Keep their weaknesses, problems, and lack of originality and realism in the light of such actions.
He noted: “They are trying to control and limit the Shia school by exerting various influences and pressures, so that they try not to spread the ideological foundations and ideals of this school in the scientific community, and the free-thinking and truth-seeking individuals to Do not have access to these principles and ideals.
This eminent professor of seminary sciences said: When I was researching in the book of Jahiz (one of the early Sunni scholars), I came across a phrase that this scholar had asked why the Muslims did not support his daughter after the death of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).
He added: Hazrat Zahra (peace be upon her) witnessed Imam Ali (peace be upon him) and Hassan and Hussein (peace be upon them) to prove their ownership of Fadak, so why did the first caliph not accept, Jahiz’s answer is very useful, to answer this, he refers to temporary marriage.
Al-Emad said: Jahiz says that when the second caliph in the sermon and in the pulpit belonging to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) explicitly states that the Prophet said that temporary marriage is permissible and I say it is unallowed and all the companions sit Infront of the pulpit, they listen, and they do not say a word, one can no longer expect to defend the rights of the daughter of the Prophet, who was weakened after his death.
He then referred to a quote from Imam Fakhr al-Din al-Razi and said: When I was a Wahhabi, I thought that the words of Zahra (peace be upon her) which said that two caliphs should not attend my funeral is the fault with Zahra (peace be upon her) and not with the two caliphs, but after researching I realized this advice of Hazrat Zahra.
Emad continued: I was researching this issue when I came across a phrase from Imam Fakhreddin Razi which was interesting and after reading this phrase I was convinced that it is right with Hazrat Zahra (peace be upon her), this phrase was that I was amazed at a time That there are verses of inheritance and emphasis, How is it possible that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forgave Fadak and did not give it to Fatima (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon her)?
I consider expressing oppression to Hazrat Zahra (peace be upon her) as my mission
Issam Al-Emad added: When one of the companions came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and said, “I have dedicated all my property,” the Messenger was upset and said, “You have the right to give a third of your property, Now how can the Prophet have said that after me all the rest is charity?
He said: “According to the opinion of all wise people, if someone wants to dedicate money, the first people to realize that they are his children, not friends and companions to whom the inheritance does not belong, unless the father feels that the children are idiots, An idiot means one who cannot keep property and land.
This Wahhabi scholar who Converted to the Shia religion continued: Although the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is the wisest, how could he have told the first caliph that mine was alms and did not tell his daughter, I said that maybe his daughter Zahra (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon her) is an fool, research I did and saw that the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) introduced Hazrat Zahra (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon her) as the most perfect woman in the world, so how could he not have told her family.
He stated: I was amazed by reading these phrases in the book of Imam Fakhreddin Razi, the oppression of Hazrat Zahra (peace be upon her) is one of the most important factors in the tendency to Shia and I mentioned it in an article entitled “The role of the oppression of Hazrat Zahra in Conversion”
Esam Al-Emad said: The book written by one of the Sunni scholars who became a Shia is named ‘To the light of Hazrat e zahra s.a I was guided’ and in this book he says that I became a Shia by reciting the sermon of Hazrat Zahra (peace be upon her).
He continued: “It is very difficult for Wahhabis to accept that the legitimacy of that the legitimacy belongs to Hazrat e Zahra (peace be upon her), because by doing so, they are questioning themselves, and that is why I saw the best way is to explain the story of Hazrat Zahra (peace be upon her and the raise of hazrat against those two and the extraordinary oppression of Hazrat by them.
Esam Al-Emad was a Wahhabi who, after studying the Shia religion, converted to the Shia religion like many Sunni scholars. He studied in Sunni scientific centers for 17 years, after writing a book against the Shias and Imam Ali (as), He realized the legitimacy of the Shias and Amir al-Mu’minin, and after he became a Shia, he wrote a book rejecting his previous books.
