  1. For ex Sunnis, how was your life like after becoming Shia. Did you have to do taqqiyah? Where there ever times you feared for your life? What were the reactions of your friends and families when you eventually came out.
  2. @Diaz right. From the start they lie to us. Telling us that Shia believe Ali (عليه السلام)was supposed to be the Prophet and not Muhammad (sawa). If the Shias are misguided? Whats the point of making up false information about their beliefs?
  3. Since I have accepted the guidance of Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) I have found it strange how our brothers from ahlu sunnah accuse us of taqqiya. In reality the basis of ahlu sunnah is taqqiya. Umar threatning to burn Fatima az Zahra (عليه السلام) house is in multiple Sunni books, he even threatens to kill al zubayr. They accuse us of believing the Qur'an is tampered because of weak hadith but in bukhari there is literally a hadith that says a goat ate copies of the Qur'an! And Umar confirms it himself. In all of years of going to the mosque and madras, not once did I hear of hadith taqlayn. All
  4. @Ashvazdanghe yes. I must admit, I have been having some zealous tendencies, but in all honesty. Im still having trouble having to accept that the people I once loved and looked up to wernt who I thought they were.
  5. @Hassan- Ameen. This is just one of the things. In all honesty. I have come to find that taqqiya, in terms of hiding true beliefs is a Sunni thing, not Shia thing. Another great example is hadith thaqalayn.
  6. One of the reasons why I left salafism and Ahlu sunnah as a whole. They disagree in literally everything. Forget the fact wheter they think the hands should be folded or at the sides, those that fold their hands can’t even agree on were the hands should be placed when folded. They always quote the hadith were the Prophet muhammed sawa said his ummah wouldnt unite on misguidance but even deem the salah of other madhabs as invalid. They will say that they are all correct and taqlid is okay, but how does that explain the fact that what invalidates prayer in one madhab wouldnt invalidate it in ano
  7. Assalam alaikum. For those of you interested in why I accepted the path of Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) I could give you so many reasons why this is a long post so please bear with me. I can speak to you about it for days. Heres one reason I have rejected the path of Ahlu sunnah. There is so much double standardness one starts to wonder what is right and what is wrong. Heres an example. Many Sunnis will ask Shias why they are so emotional for Karbala and that it happened a long time ago. Heres the thing, youll never hear o Karbala in most Sunni mosques. But you will hear about the assasinatio
  8. Thank you guys for the love and support. I really appreciate it. My heart feels more at east knowing that I am following the very same people that Prophet sawa said that they would never seperate from the Qur'an until they meet him at the cistern. Recorded even in authentic Sunni hadith. This is why I like to call Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) the missing link and why those who follow them would logically be the only right path. اللهم صلي على محمد و على محمد
  9. Assalam Alaikum. I just want to start by thanking Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) for pushing me foward into the right direction. I’ve accepted that the Prophets sunnah is Ahlul Bayt and that his succesor are non other then Ali ibn abi talib and his descendents (عليه السلام) coming from a salafist background, I have to be honest and say that the notion of asking people who are gone is still hard for me to accept. Nonetheless, I can’t deny the fact that the Prophet sawa instructed us to follow his Ahlul Bayt. As I mentioned in a previous post. My people are hardline salafist so and Shia I
  10. The point you made that there are sects that are farther away from Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) was a very good one. Part of why I even give Shia Islam a second look is after id see multiple narrations of the Prophet sawa talking about following his Qur'an and Ahlul Bayt not Qur'an and sunnah. I might just still be in my denial stage
  11. Woow. Your very observant mashAllah. It makes me a bit sad to see that you knew my ethnicity just from the fact that I mentioned its very salafi and me being Shia would equal automtic ostracism. And youre right, it does feel like your almost lying to yourself. I like what you had to say, please message me if you don’t mind. Id love to have some more insight from a former Sunni.
  12. Assalam alaikum. Im looking to become a Shia after a lot of debating and thinking, Ive come to the conclusion that the best path to me to follow is the path of Qur'an and Ahlul Bayt as is mentioned in both Sunni and Shia hadith. Only thing is, whats holding me back is my lack of knowledge so to speak. From my understanding, everything we do from salah to wudhu is different. On top of that, I come from a very salafi indoctrinated ethnicty and I know that backlash and ostracism are only to be expected. I havent officialy accepted the Shia view of Islam yet but at the same time I don’t really con
