Book introduction:

The Book “Shaykhism is the Starting Point of Deviation” Was Published

The book, “Shaykhism, is the Starting Point of Deviation”, written by Mohammad-Hasan Najjari, is a collection that has been prepared and compiled with the guidance and support of the research deputy of the Islamic Development Organization, in order to [help people] recognize Baha’ism.

According to the Mehr News Agency, one of the very big issues that the elders of the Shiite belief have always been dealing with, has been the discussion of the false claimants and the culture of Mahdism. In recent centuries, false claimants have entered the realm, claiming and projecting Mahdism, which is supported by the great global arrogant organizations, as well as international Zionism. Thus, a new method has emerged to claim the false pretenders of Mahdism and create forged and emerging sects, by which heavy and irreparable blows have been inflicted on the body of the Shiite belief.

Shaykhism is one of the most important sects formed by the enemies of Islam; it is, in a sense, the starting point of deviation in Shiite society. The book “Shaykhism is the Starting Point of Deviation”, written by Dr. Mohammad Hasan Najjari, is a collection that, with the guidance and support of the research deputy of the Islamic Development Organization, has been written in order to [teach people to] recognize the perverse Baha’i sect, and the role of global Zionism in the emerging deviant sects, which have appeared as part of the Shiites, over the last two centuries.
