QUESTION:

Kindly provide answers to the following question. The reply to my
questions should be based on the rulings of Ayatollah Syed Ali Seestani.

I would like to know whether Kadayanis (they do not believe Prophet
Mohammed to be the last prophet) are Najis or Pak.  I ask this question
because in Geneva we are a small Muslim community and are often invited by
them for lunch or dinner parties.  In such case should one go to such
parties or should one stay away from them. 


ANSWER:

Ayatull.. Sayyid Ali a-Husayni al-Seestani writes "An infidel . . . is
najis... And similar is the case of those who deny Prophethood, or any of
the necessary laws of Islam .." (Islamic Law, p.18).

Since the belief in Nabuwwah includes believing Prophet Muhammad (s) to be
the last and final Prophet sent by the Almighty for the guidance of
humanity, anyone disputing this is denying the apostleship. The
Qadiyanis/Ahmadis are those who deny Prophethood and therefore they are
Najis.

God knows best.

FOLLOW-UP QUESTION:

I have the following question to Br. Kassamali:

With regards to the following answer, does it mean that according to
Ayatollah Seestani, all non-shia's are najis, including Christians, Jews,
Sunnis, etc.?

RESPONSE:

The Sunnis are tahir according to our maraji`. As for the Ahlul Kitab
(i.e. Christians and Jews) they are also tahir according to the fatwa of
Ayatul..  Sayyid `Ali al-Husayni al-Seestani. 

Ref: MinhaajuS Swaaliheen, vol.1, p.139, Qum 1414.

God knows the best.
