HIZBOLLAH is a political Shia group backed by the Rāfiḍi Shia of Iran and is a network that spans across many countries and whose aims are to serve the Shia cause, ideologically and politically. This political party was set up formally in Lebanon in 1985CE although it's initial activities started around 1982CE.
This party was set up by the aspirations of the Iranian backed Lebanese Shia. Initially however this movement had the name "Ḥarakah ʾAmal al-Shīʿiyyah" (Movement of Shīʿite Hope), but then it broaded its horizons seeking to gain more popularity and changed the name to "ʾAmal al-Islāmiyyah" (Islamic Hope), this being an offshoot of the main movement. Under this guise of being spokesperson and defender (of Islam), it spread Shīʿ'ism in Lebanon and to other parts of the world.
However, there were many crimes and barbarities associated with the original group (Harakah ʿAmal al- Shīʿiyyah) which put the child-group into the position of having to defend itself, and as a tactical move, they simply created a new party and this is what is known today as Hizbollah.
In an era where people do not understand the religion, nor fathom the correct, authentic ʿaqīdah, and nor have an appreciation for the study of history, parties such as Hizbollah come along in this type of environment to play a dangerous role against the Islamic nation. Hence, it is upon Ahl al-Sunnah to know the dangers of this subversive group, "...So that the way of the criminals becomes evident." (6:55).
