Dr. Sulayman al-Ashqar in his book “World of the jinn and devils” wrote:
The famous scholar of hadih, al-Amash said, “A jinn appeared among us. I said to him, “What is your favorite food?” He said, “Rice”. We brought some to him and i would see the spoon go up and down but couldn’t see anyone. I said, “Do you also have people of desires (and innovation) amon you like what we have?” He said, “Yes”. I said, “What is the situation of the rafidha among you”. He said, “They are the worst of us”. After recording the above story, ibn Kathir wrote, “I presented its chain to our teacher Abu Al-Hajjaj al-Mizzi. He said, “The chain authentic back to al-Amash”.

One of the top shia scholars in ahadeeth, Mohammad Baqeer Majlesee said:
– أقول : سمعت والدي ره يروي عن شيخه البهائي نور الله ضريحه أنه كان يقول : سمعنا مذاكرة عن مشايخنا عن القائم صلوات الله عليه في الاستخارة بالسبحة أنه ياخذها ويصلي على النبي وآله صلوات الله عليه وعليهم ، ثلاث مرات ، ويقبض على السبحة ويعد اثنتين اثنتين ، فان بقيت واحدة فهو افعل ، وإن بقيت اثنتان فهو لا تفعل .
“I heard my father, which narrated from his shaykh al-Bahai, that he said: “We heard in the talk between our shuyookh, that imam said about /istikhara/ by beads following: “Take them and pronounce salawat upon prophet thrice. Then (you) should take beads and count (them) by pair, if in the end there would left one bead, then you should do that work, if two you shouldn’t”

I don’t think that there is a need for my comment.
I have already posted here some threads where explained reality of shia call for moslem unity.
Now, just found interesting quote in book “Al-Etikadat” by as-Saduq, page 83.
واعتقادنا فيمن خالفنا في شئ واحد من أمور الدين كاعتقادنا فيمن خالفنا في جميع أمور الدين.
And our belief in those who opposes us in single thing from religious aspects, like our belief in those who opposes us in all aspects of religion.
This is a very important quote from one of the top scholars of imamiyah. If you oppose them in single thing, no matter what is that, is it fiqh or faith, wala bal bara or amr bil maroof, in their view you opposes them in all aspects of religion.
Salam alaikum. I would simple quote here all text of that shia supplication, and underline some terrific parts. Thinks yourself, does this has to do anything wuth islam, or does that ziyarah nothing but blatant kufr.
Az-Ziyara Al-Jame’a Al-Kabeera: The Major Comprehensive Pilgrimage
68-3 Ali ibn Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Imran al-Daqqaq, Muhammad ibn Ahmad Al-Sinani, Ali ibn Abdullah al-Warraq and Al-Hussein ibn Ibrahim ibn Ahmad ibn Hisham al-Mokattib – may God be pleased with them – narrated that Muhammad ibn Abi Abdullah al-Kufi and Abul Hussein al-Asadi quoted on the authority of Muhammad ibn Isma’el al-Mak’ki al-Barmaki, on the authority of Musa ibn Imran an-Nakha’ee that he had told Ali ibn Muhammad ibn Ali ibn Musa ibn Ja’far ibn Muhammad ibn Ali ibn Al-Hussein ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib (Imam al-Hadi) (s), “O Son of the Prophet of God! Please teach me words to say that are both eloquent and perfect to say whenever I visit anyone of you (the Imams).” Then the Imam (s) said, “Stop when you arrive at the door. Express the two testimonies after you have performed the Continue reading
We all remember the short clip where one two faced shia shaikh pretended that he’s crying as soon as he seen camera is filming him.
Here other example how shia shuyookh making shias to cry.
In his book Hajji Nuri mentions a story that was related to him by one of the students in Najaf, who originally came from Yazd. “One day,” he said, “in my youth I made a journey on foot to Khorasan, going by the road that passes through the desert (kawr). In one of the villages of Nayshabur I went to a mosque, as I did not have any place to stay. The imam of the mosque came and led the prayers. Afterwards he went on the minbar to make a rawdah I was amazed to see the mosque attendant bring a pile of stones which he handed over to the imam. When the rawdah started, he ordered the lamps to be put out. When the lamps had been put out, he pelted the stones at the audience and there arose cries from the people. When the lamps were lighted, I saw bleeding heads. Their eyes were tearful as they walked out of the mosque. I approached the imam and asked him why he had done such a thing. He said, ‘I have tested these people. There is no rawdah in the world that will make them weep. As weeping for the sake of Imam Husayn has a great reward and thawab, I have found that the only way to make them cry is to throw stones on their heads. This is how I make them weep.’ ” He believed that the end justifies the means. The end was to mourn Imam Husayn though it should involve emptying a pile of stones on the people’s heads.
(Quoted from ‘Ashura: Misrepresentations and Distortions Al-Tawhid by Ayatullah Murtada Mutahhari)
Grand master of rawafidh shaikh al-Qummi in his “al-Khisal” said:
24-10 حدثنا أبوأحمد محمد بن جعفر البندار الشافعي بفرغانة قال: حدثنا مجاهد ابن أعين بن داود قال: حدثنا محمد بن الفضل قال: حدثنا ابن لهيعة، عن سعيد بن أبي هلال، عن أنس بن مالك قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله:إن بني إسرائيل تفرقت على عيسى إحدى وسبعين فرقة فهلك سبعون فرقة وتخلص فرقة، وإن امتي ستفترق على اثنتين وسبعين فرقة يهلك إحدى وسبعون ويتخلص فرقة، قالوا: يا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله من تلك الفرقة؟ قال: الجماعة الجماعة الجماعة.
Abu Ahmad Muhammad ibn Ja’far al-Bandar al-Shafe’ee in Furqan narrated that Mujahid ibn A’ayn ibn Davood quoted Muhammad ibn al-Fazl, from Ibn Lahay’at, from Sa’id ibn Abi Hilal, from Anas ibn Malik that God’s Prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa salam) said, “After Jesus (alaihi salam) the Children of Israel divided up into seventy-one sects. Seventy sects will be ruined and only one will be saved. My nation will divide up into seventy-two sects. Seventy-one sects will be ruined and only one sect will be saved.” They asked, “O Prophet of God! Who are the sect that will be saved?” The Prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa salam) replied, “Djamaat” And repeated it three times.
