Welcome to “The Rafidah” Answer Back official blog. Our mission is to provide answers to commonly asked questions and ask questions you rarely ever here asked. The point of it all is to encourage an intellectual and academic dialogue between the the followers of Ahlul Bayt (as) (i.e. the Shia) and the Bakri sect (i.e. so-called Sunnis, Salafis, etc.).

The title of “Rafidah”, which literally means ‘those who reject’ or ‘those who desert’, has infamously been used as a derogatory slur for the Shia. It was used as a way to accuse the Shia for ‘deserting’ the Bakri Caliphs Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, and Muwaiyah thus ‘rejecting’ their interpretation of Al-Islam.

We however embrace this name, for we do in fact ‘reject’ and ‘desert’ these men and everything they stood for. We ‘desert’ and ‘reject’ those who’s tyranny stole the right of succession from the Ahlul Bayt (as), abused them (as) and their followers, and eventually their martyrdom. In turn we ‘reject’ and ‘desert’ those who would like us to change our religion in order to please the Bakris and others. For over 1400 years we have been questioned due to this ‘rejection’ and ‘desertion’, now its our turn to answer back.

“Let there rise among you a group who enjoins the good and forbids the evil, for it is they who are successful.”

(Surah 3:104)
