    Salam, Ramadan Mubarak!
    The division was due to the difference of belief of who is the Caliph after the Holy Prophet, after the two groups split you began to see the lengthy history he is referring to.
     
    The difference is an important matter of creed, and was one which sought to preserve the Orthodox teachings and guidelines of the Prophet unlike the historical analogy he is drawing in regards to the Churches.
     
    Shias are considered heretics because they threaten the narrative that is being pushed that benefits political and monarchical rulers, who hide under the guise of Sunni Islam. I think its more of Ziio-U.S thing against Iran where the Arab nations are its puppets.
    As for it being to close to home in regards to conflicts we can draw a plethora of anecdotal instances and entertain the varying possibilities, but when we look at things through a lens which is seeking the truth in regards to the rightful Caliph after the Prophet it is quite evident and those who usurped it unjustly from Imam Ali have passed on their traditions in this struggle for power.
    As for those who seek intra-faith dialogue like such Sunni communities he referred to then inshallah such doctrinal matters can continue to be discussed.
    So yes it was a Sunni-Shia divide, but more of a ploy against Imam Ali, however, there will always be those who seek the truth and those who seek power and after one is able to sift through such matters they can reach the necessary conclusions.

    Salam the three groups of "Uzbeks, Tajiks, Russians " before soviet union era were under influence of Iran that "Uzbeks, Tajiks & Turkmens " people & their  current countries were a part of greater Khorasan of Iran that separated from Iran as result of Iran & Tsardom of Russia wars that even near to city of Merv in Turkmenistan was resident place of Imam Reza (عليه السلام) that he buried  after martyrdom in Tus of Iran in a journey from Merv to Baghdad that becomes city Mashhad now so they were under Iran influence until mid of Qajara era so they just return to their roots after fall of soviet union  but unfortunately Iran & Shia Islam has no rule in this process but Turks & wahabi preachers by support of KSA are taking advantage of this gap in their favor also Iran & Korea had connection with each other through Silk Road but now Iran has very  weak connection with Korea but Turkey since separation of Korea as ally of USA has strong connection with S.Korea that by help of this strong connection is spreading it's definition of Islam in S.Korea & China that definition of Islam & Muslims for S.Korea & China is what comes from Turkey & KSA which presence of Shia muslims in these two countries just limited to few migrants from Pakistan & India  & few shia converts from Koreans that has limited influence in comparision of great investment & propaganda of Turkey & KSA .

    Salam and Ramadan Mubarak. I am not going to quote your friend's whole message because it is too long. It's like a 3 page letter. 
    Is he someone you know in real life or you met him on the Internet? Did you tell him in a previous message that you wanted to move to another country and need a work visa? If you did, then ok. If not, then beware because he might be charging money to help people do that.

    Salam, Ramadan Mubarak
    I have a good non-muslim that i have met recently. We have been discussing many topics and he seems well informed mashallah. However this morning he sent me this reply and quite frankly i don't know how to respond. My knowledge is pretty dull on this issue. It is a very sophisticated question. Perhaps one of u guys can provide some suggestive answers. Jzk
    Here it is: 
    "Hello, friend! Yes, it feels good for my day counter to be going up! I've been feeling good the past two days  I hope you've been doing good as well.

    Now, I know it's not necessarily my place, seeing how I'm not Muslim myself - but I've been wondering lately - is the Sunni-Shia divide reeeeeeallly specifically a Sunni-Shia divide? What do I mean by that... Like, if you look at a map on wikipedia of where people are more Sunni or more Shia, most Shias are in or around Iran. The places where there's a lot of conflict are border countries that have at one point been under Persian influence, but are contested between other groups as well - in Iraq it's torn between Arabs and Kurds, Pakistan and Afghanistan are fractured between even more competing factions, and then there's the situation in Bahrain...

    The more I listen to Sunnis and Shias discuss differences - it reminds me of the schism in the Western and Eastern Orthodox church. Now, there are doctrinal differences between those churches, but the doctrinal differences are minor compared to other schisms. Instead, I think the church split mainly for geopolitical differences, and the doctrine was more of an excuse pointed to after the fact.

    The split mostly appeared during the crusades, at a time during which Christians were supposedly uniting against "Non-Christian enemies". The Vatican would keep sending crusaders to the holy land, stopping by Constantinople along the way. But Constantinople was never prepared to accommodate to so many soldiers, so the crusaders would be left dissatisfied with their provisions and end up rioting and ransacking their fellow Christians. This became such a habit that Western crusaders just started ransacking all sorts of Eastern Christian towns because it was more profitable than going all the way to Jerusalem. Now - if I'm not supposed to fight my brother in faith, then teeeeechnically by considering him a heretic then.... all of a sudden my geopolitical objectives are permissible and I can ransack his capital all I want. And from the Eastern perspective... would you want to maintain ties with the person who's repeatedly pillaging you?

    So my question is, since there are many people called "Sunnis" who have a radically different tradition from the Arabs, yet are still considered Sunnis, while Shias are uniquely singled out as "heretics" - isn't that more of an Arabia vs Iran thing? In that sense, Arab Sunnis might have animosity with Shias because the fitna feels too close to home for them. Maybe one of their relatives was killed in tribal conflict, and it's hard to get over stuff like that. But there are also plenty of "Sunnis" that don't have any beef with Shias.

    For example, Kazakhstan is labeled as Sunni, but if you look closer at how they practice, they've been doing their own thing for a while. Idk if you've ever met a Kazakh or read up on their history, but they're definitely worth knowing about. They recently escaped soviet rule and are trying to assert their independence from external influences like Russia and China. They're descended from Turks who converted to Islam long ago, independently figuring out what it means to be Muslim in their own cultural context for decades. They're a modern multiethnic country, with sizable minorities of Uzbeks, Tajiks, Russians, Koreans (that's an interesting story, how they got there), etc... so they're used to navigating cultural differences, and would probably be pretty welcoming to someone like yourself!

    I think they're also trying to get more English-speakers in the country to educate the youth in international business, so who knows, maybe you could get a work visa. The cost of living's low, but the HDI is high - the cities have all the frills of modern life, but there's also plenty of wilderness if you ever want a break from civilization. Sorry, I sound like a tour guide right now...

    Speaking of Muslims in Asia, something I find amazing about places like China - the population is so huge, you'll look at a pie chart of their demographics and there's this tiny sliver that says like "oh only 2% of the population is muslim" and you think "that's not that many".... but that ends up being at least 10 million people! Many of their muslims are descended from Turks as well (Kazakhs, Uyghurs, Salar), but the majority seem to be ethnic Chinese who were converted a long time ago. Official statistics by the CCP often lump them together in these broad inaccurate categories, so it's hard to tell what's going on sometimes - and then, of course, there's the persecution... I live in an area where there's a lot of Muslim refugees from China. They have really good food, my girlfriend and I used to go to this one Uyghur restaurant all the time before quarantine... We're thinking of ordering some delivery sometime this week... Laghman.... Fried noodles... ooooooh that sweet and sour tofu goes really good with the fried noodles..... OOoof... I didn't realize how hungry I am as I write this........... trying...... to wait.... for Iftar....

    In Australia, you're right next to Indonesia, right? Idk much about Indonesia, but I wonder how Indonesian-Australian muslims would feel towards Shias. I bet there's plenty of "Sunni" communities across the globe that would welcome you with open arms. I hope you get to travel around a bit, check some of them out "

And they say once you confess your sins to a father how horrible that be they are forgiven? ???? God did not give them authority bro. This is not religion of Jesus which he preached.

    Ya Mahdi1999 got a reaction from Hameedeh in Help finding particular latmyiya   
    Salam,
    May Allah bless and reward the tears that we will all be shedding amongst these sacred 10 nights. During these last few nights I have been attending the majalis of imam Hussain (as) and the program always plays Farsi latmyiyas before the program starts, and there happens to be this one latmyiya which I have fallen in love with so badly however cannot find it no matter how hard I search on the internet. The lyrics go somewhere amongst the lines of "Labayka Ya Tharallah" and I am pretty sure the reciters of this particular latmyiya are the same individuals that created a well known latmyiya called "moon on spears". 
    Any recommended suggestions would be great. Thank you all. Tabarakallah Feekon.

    Laylatul Qadr is considered to be one of three: the 19th, 21st or 23rd of the Holy Month of Ramadan. So after maghrib and isha prayers on the 18th, 20th and 22nd, you recite special duas, say special prayers, do tasbeeh, and read the Holy Qur'an. Some people stay up all night long and worship Allah in this way, until they eat sahar and begin fasting again.
