  1. Makrooh not haram. Most conservative Muslimahs wear black though not sure if this due to culture. The preceding point on Sayed Sistani's website is as follows, which says it is recommended wearing white Interestingly in the classic film on the story of early Islam, The Message, both men and women were depicted wearing white. Also from this app version of a book from the 80s on Shia salat the girl is wearing white: Indonesian women praying:
  2. Probably not, but defeats the purpose of fasting, which includes lowering the gaze and abstaining from the haram. You do not want to be of those who only get hunger and thirst out of fasting.
  3. I recalled on another thread that your SO is Sunni, so I'm assuming it is concern for their spiritual well being. The best advice is simply to practise Shia Islam and let their curiosity and comprehension of our beliefs and practises increase. Try to casually bring up in conversation (in a non preachy way) about important events in Islamic history and about the suffering and marginalisation of Ahlul Bayt, whom this person loves. Play our Duas more often, they are unique to us and just amazing, really has no comparison. Can speak from experience and witnessed the gradual changes, started with her doing wudhu "correctly" to not folding the hands in salah, alhamdulillah. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) guides whom He wills Importantly, supplicate sincerely.
  4. This is the video mentioned at the end, specifically about the Shia in Africa:
  5. The Prophet saw is said to have had shoulder length to ear lobe length depending on narration. Which is why (mostly Sunni) brothers grow it as a Sunnah, in a similar fashion to wearing a thobe. I too grew my hair as such and I like it. Though, don't be growing your hair long without a beard...just no (which is wajib anyway). It was also more customary back then for men, especially when you see depictions in dramatised events in the early Islamic period in TV and film.
  6. It honestly is one of those things where you have to bite the bullet and do it. That one first step is the hardest, and the feeling of a thousand eyes on you, and I know the feeling, truly is in your head. I had similar reservations about returning to pray at the local Sunni mosque which I had been part of since they opened but stopped going since I started following Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام), as you can imagine the thoughts of peoples eyes on me praying openly as a Shia with a turbah, but as it turned out, no one cares about us in that sense, no one batted an eyelid. It was in in my head that kept me from returning all these years. I regularly attend when I can.
  7. I've often seen Shias in online comments saying how they have no issues with Sunnis, just the takfiri Salafis/Wahabis or that Sunnis are not sectarian or takfiris towards Shia, it just the Salafis, etc. But what about these references and quotes of the Sunni madhab founders and other salaf on the rawafid? Link is in Arabic but can be translated to get the gist of it: http://www.alserdaab.org/articles.aspx?selected_article_no=464 I cannot be sure as to authenticity. Edit: Though I wouldn't be surprised if TSD (who are reading this) include it in one of their next videos.
  8. Reminds me of this epic series called 4 Blocks set in Germany of a Lebanese crime family the Hammadis. Not sure if their characters were Sunni or Shia though.
  9. Yeah add @Propaganda_of_the_Deed to your list of 40 mu'mins in salatul layl please
  10. This is like the Salafi version of dropping diss tracks and the ensuing build up and partisanry. These mans outchea thinking they Nas v Jay Z
