  1. As salamu alay cum. I am wondering what if Shia come to take Mecca one day? What would be their attitude towards Sunnis and other groups for example. I have read that non Shia can be treated as non believers, for example in some Shia books (like "essence of life" -/ "ayn al hayat") this seems to be indicated, but I am not sure of the legal weight of this or the interpretation I have. I am obviously not qualified. But then there are "less orthodox" the Sunnis (afaik) like the Ahmadis. I am wondering of the legal status of non Shia, especially for the rites of haj. For example I heard that the Taliban regarded Shia as non Muslims, sometimes at least. If a Sunni alim regards Shia as non Mulsims, would his followers through taqlid be regarded as sound for the rites of haj etc? Where is the line drawn and how? I am presuming that non-Muslims aren't allowed on haj. The purpose of this thread is that although I am a "Sunni" I am not a terrorist supporter and don't like to see killing in Iraq and Syria, but if Iranian backed Shia rule expands (hypothetically) I am wondering how much spiritual weight I might be giving to a "madhab" or school which may or may not respect my choices or school of fiqh. At these times I would like to also extend apologies for any terror, plus pay respects to the martyrs of the Shia tradition. This may seem like mere words, but its all I can do at present. Thanks in advance, Luqman72.
