“When Bishr al-Mareesee died, not a single Sunni attended his janaazah – and this was alongside the fact that that the people of Sunnah were widespread in the land – except one man from Ahlus-Sunnah did attend, and he knew what Bishr al-Mareesee was upon from “Tajahhum”, i.e. denial of the punishment of the grave, denial of the intercession on the Day of Resurrection – however he only attended the funeral to make du’aa against him, not to make du’aa for him! So when Bishr was placed in his grave, this Sunni supplicated:
“O Allaah! If this servant of yours denied the Punishment of the Grave, then let him taste the Punishment of the Grave the likes of which no one from existence has ever tasted!
So when the people supplicated, he likewise continued to supplicate:
“O Allaah! If this servant of your denied the Intercession of the Day of Resurrection, then do not permit any of your servants to intercede for him.”
When he returned to his companions from Ahlus-Sunnah, they said to him, “You claim you are a person of Sunnah, yet you accompanied the funeral of Bishr?!” He responded, “Don’t be hasty until I inform you [of what I did].”
So he informed them regarding what he had done and said – they believed him and laughed after initially being annoyed and angry with him.”
“Wait, hold on until I inform you [of my reasons]! I did not attend the Janaazah hoping for reward in it, and I did not attend for the purpose of witnessing his Janaazah. When I stood in the row to pray I said: O Allaah! This slave of yours did not believe in seeing You in the Hereafter. O Allaah! Screen him from seeing your Face on the Day when the believers will see you. O Allaah! This slave of yours did not believe in the Punishment of the Grave. O Allaah! Punish him today in his grave with a punishment that you have not punished anyone with in all of the worlds. O Allaah! This slave of yours used to deny the Scales (Meezaan). O Allaah! Make light his scales [of good deeds] on the Day of Resurrection. O Allaah! This slave of yours used to deny the Intercession. O Allaah! Do do allow anyone from Your creation to intercede for him on the Day of Resurrection.”
“So they stopped rebuking him, and laughed!”
The Creed of the Raafidah Regarding the Companions in General
By Shaykh ‘Alee Al-Haddaadee
In the book of Saleem ibn Qays  regarding ‘Alee ibn Aboo Taalib he said: “Indeed all of the people (the companions) became apostates after Allaah’s Messenger ﷺ except four. Indeed the people came to be, after Allaah’s Messenger ﷺ, of the status of Haaroon and those who followed him; and of the status of the calf (which they took in worship) and those who followed it. ‘Alee resembled Haaroon and ‘Ateeq (Aboo Bakr) resembles the calf, while ‘Umar resembles Saamiree.”
At-Tustaree, one of their scholars, said: “Just as Moosaa came for guidance, and he guided a great portion of the Children of Israa’eel and other than them, but they became apostates during his lifetime so that none remained upon his faith except Haaroon, upon him be peace; likewise, Muhammad ﷺ came and guided a large portion; however, after his death they turned back on their heels (as apostates).”
Rather, they believe that most of those who openly manifested their Islaam during the lifetime of the Prophet ﷺ only manifested it out of hypocrisy; and that the Prophet ﷺ only accepted their entrance into the ranks of the believers because he was in need of large numbers so that he could be protected by them against his enemies. Hasan Ash-Shayraazee, one of the current day Shee’ah, says: “Indeed it was not to the advantage of the Prophet ﷺ at the inception of Al-Islaam to only accept the sincere ad reject the hypocrites. It was only upon him to gather together all of the rubbish of Jaahilyah in order to place a shield (of protection) around Al-Islaam by way of it from the local and international forces which were openly against him. So he would proclaim: ‘Say: None has the right to be worshipped save Allaah and you will be successful.’” Up to his (Ash-Shayraazee’s) statement: “It was not for the Prophet to reject them; otherwise there would only have remained him, ‘Alee, Salmaan, Aboo Dharr, and a small group from the chosen elite.”
How amazing is this! These people for whom Allaah has attested to as having faith, they (the Raafidah) attest to them as having hypocrisy! Allaah gives them glad tidings of Paradise yet these people say that they are in the fire.
قُلْ أَأَنْتُمْ أَعْلَمُ أَمِ اللَّهُ وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّنْ كَتَمَ شَهَادَةً عِنْدَهُ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَمَا اللَّهُ بِغَافِلٍ عَمَّا تَعْمَلُونَ
“Say, “Do you know better or does Allâh? And who is more unjust than he who conceals the testimony he has from Allâh? And Allâh is not unaware of what you do.” (Al-Baqarah 2:140)

Questioner: There are principles, O Shaikh, which some of the youth act upon, from these rules is, ‘Whoever does not declare a disbeliever to be a disbeliever then he is a disbeliever. Whoever does not declare an innovator to be an innovator then he is an innovator,’ and another rule, ‘Whoever is not with us, then he is against us.’
What is your opinion about these rules, O Shaikh?
Al-Albaani: And where have these rules come from?! And who laid them down?!
This reminds me of a joke that is told in my motherland, Albania, my father, may Allaah have mercy on him, related it in a sitting. In the story he said that a scholar visited a friend of his at his house and then when he left he declared his friend to be a disbeliever.
He was asked why …
In our country we have a custom, and I think it is [something] uniform in the countries of non-Arabs, they glorify and respect, and revere the scholars with some customs and habits which differ from country to country. From these is that when a scholar enters a house, visiting someone, upon leaving his shoes are supposed to be turned around so that the scholar will not have to burden himself by turning around–he should just find the shoes are ready for him to slide is feet into.
So when this scholar visited his friend and then went to leave he found that his shoes were just as he had left them, i.e., the host had not respected the Shaikh and had just left them as they were.
So ‘the scholar’ said that this is disbelief.
Why? Because the host had not respected the scholar, and the one who has not respected a scholar has not respected knowledge, and the one who does not respect knowledge does not respect the one who brought the knowledge–and the one who brought the knowledge is Muhammad عليه السلام and he carried on in this way until he got to Jibreel and then the Lord of the Worlds, and thus the host is a kaafir.
This question [of yours], this rule [you mentioned], reminded me of this fable!
It is not a condition, ever, that someone who has declared a person to be a disbeliever or has established the proof against someone, that [as a result of that] all of the people have to be with him in that judgement of takfir, because he [i.e., the person’s situation] may be open to interpretation and [thus] another scholar may hold that it is not permissible to declare that individual to be a disbeliever, and the same goes for declaring someone to be a faasiq or an innovator.
This reality is from the trials of the present day, and from the hastiness of some youth who falsely claim knowledge.
So the point is that this chain [of deduction] or making this binding is not incumbent at all.
This is an open/expansive issue, one scholar may hold something to be obligatory and the other may hold that it is not. And the scholars of before and those who came later never differed except due to the fact that the door of ijtihaad does not make it incumbent on others to take his opinion, ‘that others have to take his opinion.’ It is only the blind-follower [muqallid] who has no knowledge who has to blindly-follow [yuqallid].
The scholar, who sees another declare an individual to be a disbeliever, or a faasiq or an innovator, but does not agree with his opinion–it is not incumbent upon him at all to follow that [other] scholar.
And this is a calamity which, inshaa Allaah, has not spread from your country to others?
Questioner: By Allaah, O Shaikh, it is present in our country, the issue of declaring people to be innovators and declaring them to be disbelievers.
Al-Albaani: As for the Jamaa’atut-Takfeer then it is well-known that it is a group that started in Egypt and their fitnah was here in Ammaan before I settled here, i.e., about fourteen years ago. But Allaah the Mighty and Majestic guided them and they became upright on the Sunnah with us. Likewise some of them came to Damascus before I came here, and they tried to spread the fitnah of declaring other people to be disbelievers there, but again, our Lord did not give them success and they returned empty-handed. As for this misguidance, it is still present in Egypt and I fear that some of it may have reached the students of knowledge, and Allaah’s Aid is sought.

English translation of the story starts @ 9:21
Translated by Ahmed Abu Turaab @ http://shaikhalbaani.wordpress.com
I had travelled to Aleppo from Damascus for da’wah and gave a lesson after which the people dispersed. Normally four to five people from our brothers, our friends, stay behind. another person stayed behind with them who I had never seen before. He was sitting there, far away from me. His stomach was like this, he was not overweight, slim, yet along with that his stomach was like this .
