Let me introduce myself, i'm 33 yo from Jakarta, Indonesia. Here in Indonesia Shia deemed 'sesat' or misguided thus we implement taqiya. if you guys intrested search of 'syiah madura' in hit the translation button. Although the number of beliver is increasing (i think) we never surface in the society, some of us surfaced (mostly people with power), but then they faced challenge. But for people like me, the mediocre in society, we 'blanket' ourselve and try very hard not to practice our believe in public, then we prayed in our room (like Nabiallah Isa as suggested).


I tried to communicate with my sunnis (mostly Syafi'i) friends with basic logic about shia, even amongst the scholars it's still hard to digest, please note i dont ask them to join our ranks, i just lay down the logic why we should co-existence.


I joined a small shia majelis, but this majelis, i think, studying the higher level of shia (History, christianity, why this and that, etc.) while i'm seeking knowledge about day to day practice (how to do namaz/shalat, zakat, khumus, etc.). I'm noob in the way of ahlul bayt (6-7 years), i've been doing my research thourgh internet such al-islam.org, al-shia.org, but my questions expands such what is the marja here in Indonesia, which imam should i follow (Imam Sistani or Imam Khamenei), what should i say in qunut... and such and such.


So, if there's a fellow shia in Indonesia, especially in Jakarta, i'd like to have discussion with you on how usually Shia's do things in Indonesia. we'll go discreet if you reluctant to reveal yourself. To other brothers in the region, if you do have information, please share it with me.

Bro. emenius nice to know a shia teenager from this region. i always wonder how did the shia community in malaysia accept shia. From who? where? etc....

anyway ur 20 right? so what are u doing now?.. Sch?(where?) or working? etc


i didnt know that indonesian shia are going underground?.... From what i see they are freely practicing their faith. they have their own system there.. Madarasa, publication, pesantrian etc

That sure is a high hope for a dua. but its noting impossible... :angel:

any way i was told tat there are really any ayatollah that are not persian. biggrin.gif

Any way Me and some Brothers are making a trip to Melaka and KL after arbaeen maybe we can some how meet up and hav a gd chat?.... biggrin.gif

Nice knowing you any way ..

whats ur name any way??


Salam Bro,


in most of these madrasa and pesantrian they teaches sunni's. only handful (i know of) teaches ahlul bayt way. Eventhough shia is not banned in Indonesia (they couldnt, because saudi (sunni's put high respect to the saudis) didnt ban shia and allow shia to do hajj), but everytime Indonesia's shia would like to conduct an event, it must be guarded by the police and believe me, someone would come to mess around. But, lately ISIS established their organisation in Indonesia. I hope this can be a momentum where shia and sunni can agreed upon something.
