Living in Bahrain

Recommended Posts

السلام عليكم

How is living in Bahrain as a Shia? I wish to go study there for a few years and then leave. Is there stigma against praying the salat of our Imams ع? Does the government surveil computer activities? Is one allowed to keep Shia literature?

Thank you

I don't live in Bahrain, but I go there about three times a year. It still definitely is a shi'i majority country and I sometimes pray in the prayer in the malls. I never felt uncomfortable or anything. Shi'is aren't oppressed in terms of their religious beliefs. You won't be "punished" for being a shi'i if you don't talk about politics.
