  1. Salam alaykum, some people ask us why we follow maraji’ in relation to everything Islamic and not random, self-appointed, self-declared, “knowledgeable faithful” of Instagram/Facebook/YouTube. This is one case out of hundreds of course:
  2. Mourning over the fact that the so called “Muslims” killed Prophet’s grandson, and his entire family, is bad? Everyone mourns the way he finds acceptable. As for tatbir itself, maraji’ have differing opinions on that. Rings are a sunnah in all schools of Islam, except Saudi Wahhabism. Even deobandi Taliban wear them believing in their properties. We have a ahadith conforming the necessity of wearing them. “I’m sorry to say this”, but you clearly haven’t read any scholarly Islamic books. Following a marja’ in the time of occultation is necessary because they derive rulings on fiqh issues based upon their enormous knowledge. Otherwise you may be like the People of Ignorance who don’t study anywhere, derive their own rulings on things based on their needs and wants etc. Anjem Choudhary, famous British Salafi was his entire life secular taxi driver. He hasn’t studied a day in any established Islamic institution, yet he gathered a following whilst issuing fatwas on things. Later on, half of his base went to Syria and Iraq to slaughter innocent Shia Muslims. This is why we have the system of maraji’ established and in place, so we wouldn’t mislead millions into hell. Not to mention countless YouTube sheikhs who also do the same as Anjem but from the safety of their channels. We are the people of truth and knowledge. Joining prayers is accept across all Islamic schools except Saudi Wahhabism. The People of Ignorance also join their prayers. We do not technically “combine” them, as we still pray five times a day; Fajr, then is Dhuhr, then Asr, then Maghrib, then Isha. We just implement short break between Dhuhr and Asr, Maghrib and Isha, but nobody is forced to do so. It comes from authentic Islamic ahadith, we don’t disagree with the facts.
  3. I knew this brother personally, his story is worth sharing as well. He explains in details why he chose Shia Islam over Sunnism;
  4. Any tafsir by a Shia is worthy looking into, which one is “the best” is debatable, but there’s plenty worthy ones such as one by ʿAllāmah al-Sayyid Muḥammad Ḥusayn al-Ṭabāṭabāʾī .
  5. Walaykum as Salam, There is no Western style, love relationships in Islam, you either marry her or you stay away from her altogether till proper marriage. We do not date. Nikah mutah comes with a set of rules and obligations and isn’t meant to fulfil illicit sexual desires. One of the rules is that she should be a chaste woman not addicted to fornication, if she is a “typical” Western girl that parties and changes boyfriends often, then nikah mutah is not valid with her and you will answer for the intentions on the Judgment Day.
  6. Walaykum as Salam, Circumcision is mandatory for all male Muslims, reverts or born. You can’t perform Hajj if you are not circumcised. We have many ahadith on its importance as well as the rulings of learned scholars.
  7. Walaykum as Salam, Islamically if you two are married, then you can sleep with each other and have intercourses as much as you want. Once married, you became your wife’s wali, her parents shouldn’t and don’t have any say in this matter as long as there is no harm or indicency involved. Her parents can’t prevent you from intercourse with your own wife.
  8. We are all fallible, that’s why we do taqlid to maraji’ on fiqh issues, and not a random ulama like the man above. Black amamah also doesn’t safeguard one from weaknesses, something that many especially in the Indo-Pak communities, forget. If the charges will be proven, that alim should be judged accordingly as per Canadian laws. He is lucky he doesn’t live in a stare where sharia law governs, so will be spared the capital punishment.
  9. If you marry as a revert without even knowing how to pray or what you say in Arabic, it’s not going to help you at all. There are cases where reverts marry born Muslims and the marriages fall apart immediately because reverts go back to their old ways after few weeks, months or they lack Islamic knowledge altogether.
  10. This is enough for us not to care about him or his death. https://www.latimes.com/world/middleeast/la-xpm-2013-aug-10-la-fg-egypt-sectarianism-20130810-story.html
  11. In 2016, he gave a speech in a stadium full of Wahhabi an al-Azhar “scholars” calling upon the Egyptian Army to interfere in Syria on the side of the “opposition”. The entire stadium spectacle was basically a platform for Shiaphobes to abuse us for hours. The situation of Egyptian Shiites and Christian Copts deteriorated considerably under the Morsi, as he was affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood.
  12. You can always look at serious matrimony websites, for example here. As a revert, in my opinion, you should first and foremost focus on learning Islam in various fields.
  13. It is makruh to pray behind Sunni prayer leader, and some maraji’ ruled it even haram. Those that rule it makruh, usually say it is allowed when during an upmost necessity where praying otherwise may endanger Shia community’s well being. Refer to your marja’ on that.
  14. Peace be upon you, As per Qur'an, if you are a practicing Christian or a Jew woman, you can marry a Muslim man. However, keep in mind that any children born out of such marriage will be automatically Muslims and have to be raised in Islam.
  15. All intoxicating substances are haram. You simply can’t pray five times a day, on time, with understanding and respect towards Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) if you are drunk or high. People who who try to make haram into halal, remind me of Sunnis who spill the filth on nikah mutah whilst accepting some 30 (wanasa, misyar, misfar, halala, urfi and so on), innovative timely “marriages”..
