One of the important teachings of Shi'ism that has been able to protect and save the roots of Shi'ism and the Shias from threats and dangers, is Taqiya (dissimulation).
Taqiya is a religious verdict and all the Muslims, including the Sahaba & Tabe’in (Companions and the Followers), have approved and practiced it. However the Shias, due to being the minority and being oppressed and being in danger, have practiced this divine rule more to a point that it has been placed as their moto.
Some of those who have enmity with Shi'ism, using this moto of Shia, set equal this divine rule to a hypocritical action and justify horrible actions against the Shias.
Nasir ibn Abdullah al-Qaffari is a teacher and elite figure of Wahhabi universities of the Saudi Arabia, who has devoted most of his writings to criticism of Shi'ism. Two books of “Taqrib bayn al-Sunna va al-Rafidah” and “Usul Madhab al-Shi’a al-Ethna ‘Ashari ‘Ard va Naqd” are among his most important works. In the book of “Usul Madhab al-Shi’a al-Ethna ‘Ashari ‘Ard va Naqd”, Qaffari has criticized the teachings of Shi'ism including the topic of Taqiya based on Shia resources.
He considers the verses that has been used by Shi'ism in permitting Taqiya exclusive to the infidels, and he rejects the topic of Taqiya by referring to description of Sheikh Mofid of Taqiya and Shia narrations.
This research tries to criticize the dubious questions of Qaffari using library method and placing the Qur’an and Shia and Sunni narrative sources and the method of the Wise as its base
