As'salamu Alaikum everyone,

The following URL has a thorough refutation and adequate response to the Shias' rubbish and fitnah (tumult).  One important point that they should pay attention to is that Allah Almighty forbade us to dwell into what the people before us did.  Their days have passed, and we are forbidden from harming the Muslims by what they did.  Allah Almighty Commanded us to never dwell in the past of the people before us, nor bear responsibility for what they did:

[002:134]  That was a people that hath passed away. They shall reap the fruit of what they did, and ye of what ye do! Of their merits there is no question in your case!

‏2:134 تلك امة قد خلت لها ماكسبت ولكم ماكسبتم ولاتسألون عما كانوا يعملون


[002:141]  That was a people that hath passed away. They shall reap the fruit of what they did, and ye of what ye do! Of their merits there is no question in your case:

‏2:141 تلك امة قد خلت لها ماكسبت ولكم ماكسبتم ولاتسألون عما كانوا يعملون


So forcing the Muslims to live the past of what people did to each others 1,400 years ago is clearly forbidden in the Glorious Quran.

Hello,

If it is true that "Allah forbade us from dwelling in what the people before us did", in that case, shouldn't everyone stop eating animal meat? Since that is what "people before us" did

As'salamu Alaikum akhi,

The eating of meat is a wrong example, because it is not part of the drama and affairs of the people of old.  Drinking water, and breathing and eating is your God-given right and Law to be executed on earth.  You can't live without them.  But the drama of the people of old, such as who should've ruled and who shouldn't, and who was right and who wasn't, is something you are forbidden from causing tumult among Muslims today for.

I hope this helps, Insha'Allah.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

I could also interpret the verses as a critique of conservatism (ie following the old ways)
