Report The Wahabi Strikes Again in General Islamic Discussion Posted July 23, 2007 (salam) You are in a tough situation brother. You are stuck between love and respect for family and your religion and intellectuality. Dam that is tough. First thing I want to clear up is that your niece and nephew's father has done injustice his his children by withholding useful knowledge from them. I am sorry to tell you this but in the judgment day his children will complain to God from him and his guilty of this sin. And now your problem. You are required to respect your family members and obey your parent at all times, but not if that makes you do something against the command of God. I hope you agree with me on this. What you did to your niece was called "Amr-Bil-Ma'rūf" (Call to good deed). Your story encourages those children to think about the good actions of other people. What you did is by no mean wrong. You did not encourage them to become shia and you have nothing to worry about. Just talk to your brother in law and fix thing up. I personally an extremist in this situations because I hate people that withhold knowledge from their children. I would first talk to these people and If they do not see reason and logic then I would just stop talking (or just hello and Good bye) to these people and that is it. I knew a man I talk to sometimes and when he became a Christian over some stupid and lame reason, I just stop talking to him. But please do not listen to this advice. It is always better to talk and pach thing up.
