Definition

Every Shia Muslim believes it to be their duty to dis-associate themselves from the enemies of God and his Messengers. Muslims differ on whom to consider to be the enemies of Allah, Muhammad and the Ahl al-Bayt. For brevity, only Ahl al Bayt will be mentioned in this article. Shiʻa Islam (Arabic شيعى follower; English has traditionally used Shiite) makes up the second largest sect of believers in Islam, constituting about 30%–35% of all Muslim. ...

Ahl al-Bayt (Arabic: ) is a phrase meaning People of the House, or family. ... Ahl al-Bayt (Arabic: أهل البيت ) is a phrase meaning People of the House, or family. ...


The doctrine of Tabarra itself does not dictate whom to disassociate from or whom to associate with. It dictates the disassociation of those identified as enemies of Ahl al-bayt. The identification is up to every individual.


For example, some people may regard Umar as the enemy of Ahl al-Bayt. In that case, it becomes obligatory to disassociate oneself from Umar. However, others may regard Umar to be a friend and lover of Ahl al-Bayt, and for them the opposite comes obilgatory in accordance to Tawalla. For other uses, see Umar (disambiguation). ... Ahl al-Bayt (Arabic: ) is a phrase meaning People of the House, or family. ... Ahl al-Bayt (Arabic: ) is a phrase meaning People of the House, or family. ... Tawalla - Loving the Ahl al-Bayt, is a part of the Shia Branches of Religion and is derived from a Quranic verse. ...


Although Tabarra specifically means to disassociate from enemies of God, it contains by effect the obligation to disassociate from evil acts and fobidden things, for example seeing someone's awrah. Awrah (Arabic: عورة) is a term used within Islam which denotes the parts of the body that are not meant to be exposed in public. ...


The concept of cursing exists in Shia Islam, but does not refer to the act of cursing as perceived in Western societies.

Qur'an

A Qur'anic verse can be found that carries the same message as this doctrine. By Arberry, verse 9:1:

An acquittal (Arabic: Baraatun), from God and His Messenger, unto the idolaters with whom you made covenant:

Baraatun is derived from the same consonantal root as Tabarra. In the terminology used to discuss the grammar of the Semitic languages, a triliteral is a root containing a sequence of three consonants (so also known as a triconsonantal root). ...


Shia and Sunni differences

Since Shias and Sunnis have different sources of hadith, they tend to come to different conclusions regarding whom the enemies of Ahl al-Bayt are. Hadith ( transliteration: ) are oral traditions relating to the words and deeds of Prophet Muhammad. ... Since Shia have diffrent sources for hadith, they tend to come to diffrent conclusions regarding diffrent events in history. ...


In some cases Sunni and Shia have the same view, for example regarding Abu Lahab, Abu Jahl and Umayah ibn Khalaf. But controverses arise concerning Sahabas since Sunnis believe in the Uprightness of all Sahaba while Shia do not. Wife: Umm Jamil When the Holy Prophet invited the people to Islam, his uncle Abu Lahab and his wife Umm Jamil became hostile to him. ... Categories: Wikipedia cleanup | Religion stubs ...

Due to the Shi'ah view of early Muslim history, one Shia scholar stated: Shiʻa Islam (Arabic شيعى follower; English has traditionally used Shiite) makes up the second largest sect of believers in Islam, constituting about 30%–35% of all Muslim. ...

Regarding the doctrine of' 'Tabarri' we believe that we should seek disassociation from four idols namely, Abu Bakr, Omar, Uthman and Mu'awiyah; from four women namely, Ayesha, Hafsa, Hind and Ummul Hakam, along with all their associates and followers. 'These are the worst creation of Allah. It is not possible to believe in Allah, His Messenger and the Imams without disassociating oneself from their enemies. Haqqul Yaqeen: 2:519

Note that the scholar says "from their enemies" and not "from Umar & co". Every Muslim believes that it is important to disassociate themselves from the enemies of Muhammad, however Muslims differ upon who those are.

Shia also believe that this view was held by the descendants of Muhammad. Shia hold for authentic a narration attributed to Muhammad al Baqir. He was reported to have replied to his disciple who had sought the Imam's opinion regarding Abu Bakr and Umar: Imam Muhammad al Baqir (676 - January 31, 743) was the fifth Shia Imam. ...

"What are you asking me about them (Abu Bakr and Umar)? Whoever among us (Ahl al-Bayt) or the progeny of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) departed from this world, departed in a state of extreme displeasure with them. The elders among us admonished the younger ones to perpetuate it (extreme displeasure with them), Verily, the two of them have unjustly usurped our right. By Allah! These two were the first to settle on our (Ahl al-Bayt) necks . Therefore, may the la'nat (curse) of Allah, the Malaikah (angels) and of mankind be on the two of them. Kitabur Raudhah Page 115

"Verily. these two elders (Abu Bakr and Umar) departed from this world without having made taubah for what they had perpetrated against Ameerul Mumineen Alayhis Salaam. In fact, they did not even think of us (of their wrongs against Hadhrat Ali). Therefore, the la'nat of Allah, the Malaikah and of mankind be on them." Kitabur Raudhah Page 115

Since Shia hold for authentic narrations where the descendants of Muhammad cursed the Sunni Caliphs, Shia also curse them when doing tabarra. In Islam, one can pray for God to curse someone. ...


This added to the persecution of the Shias by the Sunnis. To protect themself in times where their life where in jeopardy, Shias used the doctrine of Taqiyya and where prevented from using tabarra in public. // Origins of the schism Shias record the start of the schism with the death of Muhammad, and in their view, a violent coup détat against Ali in his first day as caliph, which they argue was automatic without recourse to an election or a formal investiture. ... Within Islamic tradition, the concept of Taqiyya (التقية - fear, guard against)[1] refers to a controversial dispensation allowing believers to conceal their faith when under threat, persecution or compulsion. ...


Even though Tabarra is not a part of the Sunni aqidah, they have been known to use it in some occasions, for example to cursed upon Ubaid-Allah ibn Ziyad, a person they hold as responsible for the killing of Husain ibn Ali in the Battle of Karbala: Aqidah (sometimes spelled as Aqeeda, Aqida or Aqeedah) (Arabic: عقيدة) is an Islamic term meaning creed. ...

"May Allah curse the son of Ibn Sumiyya (Ibn Ziyad, la’natullahi ‘alayh)!"ref

Contemporary status

In countries where Shias are in a minority they continue to perform Taqiyya. For example, Saudi Arabia, Southern Afghanistan, Sunni areas of Pakistan, and in parts of Jordan.


Doing tabarra still causes Sunnis to feel dislike when confronted with the prayers. Due to some hadith attributed to the Shia Imams, some Shia scholars have argued that it is not permissible to pray for divine curse upon Sahaba in front of Sunnis, since that would hurt their feelings and the strive for unity among Muslims. In Islam, the Ṣaḥābah (Arabic: ‎ companions) were the companions of Muhammad. ...
