  1. Thank you. But then what drew you to Zaidi’ism as opposed to continuing with Shia’ism?
  2. Thank you. Can I ask what it was that drew to Zaidi’ism as opposed to Sunni’ism?
  3. I also want to read the Shia books and see what they suggest. The journey to reach what feels closest to the truth is quite mentally exhausting
  4. Thank you for this. I just read through the first book and noted the aspects which I found questionable: - We do not permit rebellion against our leaders or those in charge of our public affairs even if they do injustice. We also do not pray for evil to befall them, nor do we withdraw allegiance from their obedience. We hold that our civic duty to them is a part of our obedience to Allah the Exalted and therefore legally binding on us, as long as they do not order us to commit misdeed. We pray for their righteousness and ask Allah for their pardon. - The “Arsh and the Kursi”, the Throne and the Chair are true. “Kursi” is an immense creation of Allah that is smaller to the “Arsh”(Throne) and encircles the universe, and “Arsh”(Throne) is the most immense creation of Allah that encircles the entire creation including the Kursi. Wallahu A’lam. - And we do not go contrary to the majority of the Muslims. - We love the people of justice and trustworthiness, and loathe those who are tyrant and treacherous. (contradicts the first point) - We assert that we love the Companions of Allah’s Messenger ه. We do not however go to extreme in our love for anyone among them; nor do we disclaim from any of them. We loathe those who despise them. We only speak well of them. We behold loving them as a part of religion, faith and spiritual excellence. Likewise we hold hating them as blasphemy, damnation, hypocrisy and transgression.
  5. Thank you but this doesn’t indicate whether it is deemed a precuastion, wajib or wajib ihtiyat.
  6. Thank you for explaining. Do you happen to know Khamenais stance on this?
  7. Well my marja recommends waiting but that doesn’t clear up whether it’s permissible to not wait
  8. No I have read them thank you. I just wonder why the more mainstream marjas don’t necessarily share the same opinion
  9. According to which marja is it not wajib to wait?
  10. So you can break your fast at sunset BUT it is recommended to wait?
  11. As in the prominent opinion is is that the redness of the sky needs to disappear before one can break the fast hence why Shias break their fast a little later than Sunnis. But my question is where does this argument come from if layl means night and nighttime would be considered isha time

  13. I came across a article attempting to justify why Shias fast until it’s dark and not sunset like Sunnis do (see below) but if layl means night and night when is when isha happens doesn’t this mean that this argument is flawed otherwise it would mean we’d have to fast up until isha when we don’t? “The Quran clearly states that fasting is to be initiated before sunrise (at dawn) and is to be completed until 'night' (Arabic: layl). 002:187 (Part) "...and eat and drink, until the white thread of dawn appears to you distinct from its black thread. Then complete the fast till the night (Arabic: layl)..." “
