Ghali

Ghali

Ghali (Arabic, Persian, Urdu : غالی) is a term used by Muslims for a so-called Shia who believes in the divinity of prophet Muhammad, or divinity of Ali, or divinity of Hussain, or divinity of all Fourteen Infallibles. It is dervied from ghuloo (Arabic, Persian, Urdu : غلو) meaning "to exaggerate" the status of notable religious personalities. Mainstream Shias (Twelvers) consider them infidels, while the Sunni scholars sometimes use the term Ghali to refer to the whole Shia clan.

Beliefs of Ghalis

The beliefs of Ghalis as recorded from notable Shia and Sunni scholars are:
"Ghuloo (exaggeration) about Prophets and Imams may be of the following types:
1. To deem them as divine
2. To deem them as partners in divinity with Allah
3. To say that Allah has entered into their bodies
4. Allah is (physically) united with them
5. They know the facts of ghaib wihout wahi and ilham
6. To deem Imams as Prophets
7. To keep the belief that their spirits transfer to each other's bodies
8. Their ma'rifat (spiritual knowledge of their status) exempts one from prayer to Allah, and exempts one from avoiding sins.
Keeping one of the above mentioned beliefs results in kufr and ilhad (infidelity), and results in expulsion from religion. ... Our imams have kept away from such people, and have pronounced their kufr (infidelity) and have thus, ordered their execution. Thus, if you find any hadith leading to such false beliefs, its meaning should be understood with proper ta'veel (modification), or it should be attributed to Ghalis' fabrication."
(Bihar al-Anwar by Allama Majlisi)
