  1. Asalam Alaykum, I was a Sunni convert for about 10 years, I have recently become Shia. I was in a marriage while I was Sunni with a Sunni man. This marriage was a abusive marriage. He was unable to fulfil is roll as a husband such as finances, intimacy and being able to have children. We separated and he stayed in Canada I moved to Kuwait and began working in Kuwait with my own apartment and salary etc. The Sunni Imams would not grant me divorce, and I did not know my options as a Muslim women in this situation. After some time of living in Kuwait I met a Shia man and we had relations (adultery). I was finally granted the official divorce, I converted to Shia and realized that my relation with this Shia man was wrong, and wanted to make it halal and repent. Due to life circumstances we could not marry permanently so we married through mutah (temporary marriage) with the intent to marry permanently after life circumstances were cleared. I have recently read on the Sistani website “The married woman becomes permanently forbidden for him (obligatory precaution)” As a previous Sunni convert and new Shia convert, I was unaware of this information, and he was also unaware. In my circumstances I was separated and stuck in a marriage, I was unaware of the Islamic rulings and came to realize that what I did was wrong (May Allah accept my repentance) After I also wanted to become closer to Allah and found this way by becoming Shia. I would like to know, Is our temporary marriage valid? And can we marry permanently?
  2. This question is anonymous for a friend: My friend she is a Sunni convert who is becoming Shia, she was married and separated for over 5 months they are in separate countries (he is Sunni) He gave her officially taliq March 8, they have not been physical for a large amount of time and already had her menses. She is not sure what are the Shia ruling and would like to get remarried. She wanted to state that they have already tried to fix the marriage but he is abusive and much more. There is a 3 month waiting in Sunni, but with her circumstances it is different. Also, she heard in Shia there is a waiting for 40 days.
  3. Asalam Alaykum, I am currently considering Shia’ism and feel very connected to everything I have researched and read thus far. The one thing I cannot connect to (due to lack of knowledge/understanding) is the 12th Imam being Mahdi. I was wondering why the 12th Imam Muhammad al-Mahdi is known to be the Mahdi? All I found has been he was hidden and disappeared, and was wondering why him in particular would be Mahdi? Is there any sort of evidence? Any certain qualities he has? I do want to state in no way I’m a trying to disrespectful, I just want to understand on a logical level, I feel this is the one thing holding me back to becoming Shia. Thank you!
  4. Hello, I have a question.. I am a convert (Sunni but currently considering Shia) and met a Shia man, he is currently in school and does not have the means to get married and brought up mutah. When I read about it.. it scared me (I don’t have complete knowledge) and based on what I read it’s all about desires.. I don’t want to be looked at in this way. He said he is serious about me ans what’s to be halal and it will/could change after his studies. He told his mom, but I also don’t want her to think of me in a bad way if we do this. Would it be the wrong choice to do this? I know I don’t have much rights and I don’t want to get hurt at the end. Also if you can explain to me the details of mutah and any information. Thank you.
  5. Asalam Alaykum, I am a convert (to Sunni) and I have been recently learning about Shia.. and I feel very connected so far. I was wondering if anyone can provide me with good English resources, or are able to tell me about their conversion? This will be so helpful hearing reasons why others converted to Shia.
