Sheikh Muhammad Abdul Al-A’al “Palestinian cleric, Imam of Al-Wahda Mosque in southern Lebanon”


Everything needs a reason except the guardianship (Wilayat) of the Ahl al-Bayt of the Prophet (s.a.w.w) because every reason needs the Ahl al-Bayt. Indeed, my weapon is the love of Al-Bayt (a.s) and I emphasize that their love is obligatory.

I have believed in God since I was a child, but my problem was what should be the quality of my faith in God? When I came across Shia beliefs in describing God as infinite and other attributes, I found a special belief….

Another reason for my conversion to Shia was that: one day in prayer time, I was in a friend’s, the shopkeeper could not pray in the shop and was going to go to the mosque for prayer, hurriedly waited to appoint someone to replace him in the shop.

I thought about it and said to myself that this friend of mine chose someone for his small shop as a caliph and a successor to pray for a few moments.

How is it that the Messenger of God, according to the Sunni belief, left his ummah without a successor and caliph after his death and delegated their authority to them…

It was here that I realized that the Shia belief is correct and accepting the guardianship of the Ahl al-Bayt (as) is the way to salvation.
