Status of Sunnis in the Afterlife: Hawza of Qum
Posted on June 6, 2020
The original Persian article can be found here.

In the hereafter, will Sunnis receive intercession and mercy, even though they deny the wilayah of Imam Ali (a)? In the afterlife, will sinful Shias enjoy a higher status than them?

Intercession occurs when one dies without repenting and their good deeds do not outweigh the bad deeds. In this case, divine favor may be gained through saints and prophets. Of course, their are rules and restrictions. The one who earns intercession must be capable of purification.1

The conditions to receiving intercession are as follows:

1) Iman – Faith is necessary. The Prophet (p) states:

My intercession is for those who testify to tawhid, their heart attests to their tongue and their tongue attests to their heart.2

2) ‘Idalat – Justice, one must not be a sinful oppressor. In Surah Ghafir, verse 18, “The wrongdoers will have neither a close friend nor intercessor to be heard.” Imam Hasan (a) states:

Some Jews came to inquire with the Prophet (p)… He (p) responded: “My intercession is for the major sinners, except for those who commit shirk and zulm.3

3) Approved – The individual must be approved by God. Surah Anbiya, v. 28 states, “They do not intercede except for whom He approves.” A narrator asked Imam Reda (a):

What does the [aforesaid] ayah mean? He (a) responded: “Intercession is only for those whose religion is approved by God.”4

The hadiths and ayahs considered, Sunnis do not meet any of the requirements. They will not receive intercession on judgement day. Sunnis lack true iman, ‘idalat, correct theology, and valid madhab – these conditions are as a result of being an Imami Shia. The spirit of iman is only substantiated when one is an Imami Shia, and being an Imami Shia is necessary in order to be approved by God. The Prophet (p) states:

When I am in the state of maqam al-mahmud, I will be interceding for the major sinners of my nation, and Allah (swt) will accept my intercessions. However, by Allah, I will not intercede for those who harm my family.5

Regarding Shias, they are of two groups. The first group consists of those who pray, fast, etc, its major sinners will receive intercession and they [the Shia major sinners] will enjoy a higher status than the rest of humanity [except for the pious Shias].

However, Shias who do not pray, fast, lack belief, etc will not enjoy the benefits of intercession. They will be on the same level as Sunnis, because they (non-practicing Shias) are counted as enemies of the Ahlul Bayt.

Humans can make mistakes.  No one represents God but his representatives. No one else represents his representatives, but themselves. The delegation stops full period. This is enough words to refute your whole site, but you don't care about that.

There is enough clarity in the hadiths we be passed down about the issue of disbelief in context of Quran and belief, and enough about the concept of "mustafeen" and "those who await (God's judgment in their affair)".

Ultimately, Quran is clear about it as well. Those who truly hate Ahlulbayt (a) and cling to Satanic tree will never be forgiven nor is hell temporary for anyone who does so, and ultimately, the best people are those who are closest to the firm word of light brought out by God, and ultimately those without hate of humans, those humans who love and don't have hate towards truth but were lost and confused, our hadiths numerous in this regard, that says they are forgiven.

This included even the context of people who lived during the times of Imams (a) who didn't know truth let alone now in these dark times where no religion is true, and the religion and it's affair is weak, and there is no clear proof for anyone really but a few seekers who can really defeat dark magic and reflect beyond the norms of society.

Ultimately, Muslims over all, and even all religions including paganistic ones that tap too much power from the cursed tree of hell, are in a state of equal grounds,  falsehood is not longer low and truth no longer high, the word of God and his light appears just as legit as the darkness of Atheism for example to a lot of humans.

We are holding to dear life, and living in a dark night, we got to seek the day light and want God to show magical miracles again to prove his power entrusted in chosen ones so that we can rely on God's rope and the truth become evident and strong, but we are in such a dark night, that forbearance and forgiveness is what we got to for all humans including atheists, agnostics, pagans, neo pagans and even left handed spiritualists.

We are in such a dark night, nothing is evident now, no one is perishing on clear proof save wretched souls like me who evil deeds rightfully should place in hell and who lack of effort in helping humans see truth and for justice, will properly land me in hell and among the lowest of the low.

Most humans are lost, and God forgives the lost.  The astray from God's path which most verses thaleen has that meaning, are those who God's wrath is upon.

There is a category of being lost or without power to acknowledge truth, and our hadiths calls these people orphans of the family of Mohammad (s).

The world is without their spiritual fathers, and they are orphans.

Scholars of either Sunni and Shiite represent Islam true or their sect, because we defined religion and Islam that way, that is why Islam like all other religions is false religions, not one sect is true in it in the open.

Yet despite all the evil approach to Quran and Sunnah, and attributing God falsehood, and misrepresenting God's rope and dividing and hating,  a great amount of them if not majority, ultimately, are lost and will be forgiven and don't hate the truth.

Don't worry hell is not for you guys in this age, it's for wretched souls like me who know so much but do so little in God's way and are immersed in following Satan even though not blind to him, and eat of the tree of hell even while knowing the consequences.

"Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance
