Shia racism against kurds, east africans, bedouin arabs, some turks, sindhis, berbers, indians, kandaharis, khuzestanis etc...
Asalaamualaykum, here is some racism present in shiaism. Everything is sourced from the shia online library, use your browser to translate it if you don't trust the translations below.
Stated by Ayotollah Khui, Ayotollah Rouhani & Ayotollah Yazdi:
Translation: It is reprehensible to marry someone with bad character, and the transgendered person, and the Zunj (black person from Eastern Africa), and the Kurds, and the Khazars (a group of Turkic people), and the bedouin Arabs, and the immoral persons, and the drinker of alcohol.
Ayotollah Khui states it in Kitab al-Nikah, volume 1, page 16
Ayotollah Rouhani states it in Urwat al-Wuthqa, vol 2, page 459
Ayotollah Yazdi states it in al-Urwat al-Wuthqa, volume 5, page 480
I think they copied each other's view in text because they held the same view so it was quicker.
Shaykh Tusi, a famous shia scholar who lived 1000 years ago, also held a similar view. He states in his book al-Nihaya
Translation: It is reprehensible to have Nikah with (i.e. marry) any Black person from the Zunj region or otherwise, except for the Nubians specifically. And it is reprehensible to marry a Kurd. And it is reprehensible to marry an insane person. But there is no problem if a man has sexual intercourse with such a person (a Black, Kurd, or insane) if she is his slave-girl, except that he should not desire children from her.
Another famous shis scholar, Allamah al-Hilli, wrote in al-Jami’ al-Sharaye, page 245
Translation: It is reprehensible to associate with the Kurds, or sell to them, or buy from them, or marry them.
Al-Kulayni narrates in al-Kafi, in volume 5, page 352
Translation: Chapter on the dislike of marriage with the Kurds and the black persons, and others.
1 – Abi Abdillah (the sixth Shi’ite Imam) said that Ameer al-Mu’mineen (Ali bin Abi Talib, the first Shi’ite Imam) said: Beware of marrying the Zunj (black people from East Africa) for they are a deformed creation.
2 – Abi Abdillah (the sixth Shi’ite Imam) said: You must not buy anyone (a slave) from the Sudan (literally, the land of black persons), but if you do, then (buy) the Nubians, for they are amongst those for whom Allah the Mighty and Exalted said: “And from those who say, "We are Christians" We took their covenant; but they forgot a portion of that of which they were reminded.” [Quran, Surah 5, verse 14]. Indeed a time will come when they will remember that part, and a group of them will come out with the Qa’im (Mahdi) for his support. But do not marry anyone from among the Kurds for they are a kind of Jinn from whom the veil (of invisiblity) was removed.”
3 – Abi Abdillah (the sixth Shi’ite Imam) said: Do not marry the Zunj or the Khazars for they have wombs which indicate that they are unfaithful.He further said: The Indians, the Sindhis, the Qand (that is, those from Qandahar), there doesn’t exist among them any person of noble descent.
Another famous early shia scholar, Shaykh Saduq, narrates in his Illal al-Shara’i, vol 2, page 527
Translation:Chapter 310 – The reason because of which it is reprehensible to socialize with the Kurds
1 – Abi Rabee’ al-Shamiy asked Abi Abdillah (the sixth Shi’ite Imam), “There are among us some Kurdish peoples, who come to us for trade and we sell to them.”Abi Abdillah replied: “O Rabee’, do not associate with them, for indeed the Kurds are from among the Jinns from whom Allaah has removed their veil of invisibility (and hence they are visibile to you).
Also Saduq says his book al-Khisal
on page 352
Translation: Abi Abdillah (the sixth Shi’ite Imam) said: “The sweetness of belief will never enter the heart of the Sindhi (a person from Sindh; modern-day Pakistan), the Zunji, the Khuzestani, the Kurdish, the Berbers, those who reside in the hills of Ray (present day Tehran in Iran), and those born of adultery.”
