The Monotheistic Law of the Alawite Creed
By Dr. Ahmed Adeeb Ahmed
The Alawite Nusayrite Khasibi teachings confirm that salvation can only be found in loyalty to the Prince of Faithful Imam Ali (PBFH), according to the Messenger Muhammed (PBFH) who said: “O Ali, only the believer loves you”.
We believe that the founder of the Alawite Law Master Al-Hussein Bin Hamdan Al-Khasibi expresses the real thought of the Alawites, which emphasizes on the essence of the religious law, which is expressed as wisdom.
Master Al-Khasibi (AS) indicates that the straight path is the path of loyalty to Amir al-mu’minin Imam Ali (PBFH), which is the essence of faith. If people ponder what Imam Ali said, they will feel attracted to this great Imam and will contemplate his words in search of facts. Because Amir al-mu’minin Imam Ali is the bearer of the exclusive and absolute guardianship, and the guardianship is the essence of the Message.
All that he (imam Ali) said does not constitute a fraction of his endless knowledge, which is difficult for the human mind to understand or bear.
People were puzzled until despair led them to say that: “Imam Ali says what we cannot understand”, and with such a phrase they have found a way out of bewilderment for themselves, but God will guide those who want to abide by the sayings of Imam Jafar al-Sadiq (AS): “The love of Ali is worship and the best worship is the hidden one”. Also, he said: “We, Imams, were given the knowledge of the reality of death, tribulations and the truth of speech”.
Explanation of terms used:
- Guardianship: Responsibilities of the guardian who is a defender, protector, or keeper.
- PBFH: Peace be from him.
