  1. Assalamualaikum everyone. I couldn't fit my entire issue in the topic title. Honestly, I have more than one issue. I'll start with the first. As the title says, I am a sunni girl from Pakistan who is of marrying age, and is interested in marrying a man I have known since I was probably 11 or 12 years old. He also wants to marry me, but as the title shows, he is Shia. Both of us are invested deeply in our faith, and both of our parents know that we are interested in each other. But because of the Shia Sunni conflict, they don't agree. And his parents seem to have more of a problem with me than mine do with his. In all honesty, my parents don't have that much of an issue with him, they have an issue with his parents. So I'm stuck there. Next issue: Not because of this, but a long time ago, I started doing research about the Sunni Shia split, why it happened, etc etc. I had another friend who is Shia teach me a lot as he was more knowledgeable. A lot of what was said made so much more sense to me than my own sunni history. The history behind the ahlul-bayt and everything, it just made more sense. I debated reverting to Shiasm but I know my parents would not approve of it. I also feel that since I only learned from a Shia side of things, it may be a little biased. Basically I am asking for reasons to stay with sunnism or revert. As I said, the history makes sense, but I don't know. Maybe it just doesn't feel right. I am very conflicted. Just for the record, as stated earlier, I am a very practicing muslim. I wear a hijab, pray, read quran, etc my faith is very important to me. I just don't understand what to do. Jazakallah Khair
