The revered source of emulation considered Takfiri movements to be the product of the ‎Takfiris and Wahhabis ideology and insisted that they would have disappeared had it not ‎been for American petrodollars and support.‎

RNA – Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem-Shirazi met with members of the Association of ‎Activists Criticizing Wahhabism held at Qom’s Imam al-Sajjad Seminary and said that the ‎Islamic Seminaries are awake in opposition to the threat of Takfirism and Wahhabism.‎

The revered source of emulation emphasized that the threat of Takfirism and Wahhabism ‎isn’t limited to ‎Shi’ahs and added, “Daesh was the product of Wahhabism and it poses a ‎threat to all of humanity.”‎
‎ ‎
He emphasized that the threat of Takfirism and Wahhabism is against all of humanity and ‎stated, “At the same time, one must wake up the Muslims that the Takfiris and Wahhabis ‎aren’t the only enemies of the Shi’ahs and followers of the Ahl al-Bayt.”‎
‎ ‎
Ayatollah Makarem-Shirazi emphasized, “As the facts have become clear ‎to many people ‎around the world today, it has become easier to combat this ideology than ‎before.‎”‎

His Eminence considered the Takfiri and Wahhabi scholars to be at a very low level and ‎described his discussions with some Wahhabi scholars in Saudi Arabia and said, “We ‎discussed issues with them in Madinah and they couldn’t provide an answer to any of ‎issues.”‎
‏ ‏
He said that the method of Takfiri and Wahhabi argumentation is selecting verses from the ‎‎Holy Quran and noted, “Wahhabis only resort to verses that are ‎in accordance with their ‎goals and desires, leaving out the rest of the verses.”‎
‎ ‎
Referring to the baseless Wahhabi claim that the Shi’ahs believe in the ‎distortion of the Holy ‎Quran, Ayatollah Makarem-Shirazi stated, “The fact that the Quran hasn’t been distorted is ‎heavily emphasized in our exegeses and ‎books. Whenever we provide proofs and answer ‎their questions, again they are ‎stubborn and insist on their false claims.‎”‎
‎ ‎
In another part of his remarks, the renowned teacher in the Islamic Seminaries of Qom ‎emphasized ‎that the end of Wahhabism is near and added, “If it weren’t for petrodollars and ‎American support, they would have disappeared. The end of Wahhabism is a reality, their ‎survival is due to support and petrodollars.”‎

He considered it as the scholars’ duty to be a border guard between the religion and the ‎beliefs of the people and to safeguard the school of the Ahl al-Bayt and said, “Wahhabis ‎want to stir up the minds and thoughts of people in regard to Shi’ahs and the followers of ‎the Ahl al-Bayt by faking a series of lies and one must be very careful in this regard.”‎
‎ ‎
Ayatollah Makarem-Shirazi called the cultural struggle against ‎Takfirism as a priority over the ‎military struggle and said, “If the Takfiri ideology is challenged, it ‎would be much easier to ‎fight them militarily and physically.‎ Of course, the Takfiris today are extremely weak in ‎various fields.”‎
