  1. as salaam alakim! can a mentally ill person still be a shia, can one practice shia islam mentally ill or scizophrenaic, i heard if your insane or un sound you prayer and wudu is invalid? Is this true in shia islam?
  2. I’m a sunni Muslim and lately I have a lot of questions over the differentiation between Sunni and shias. I want to know more about the way of the Shia Muslims. And what books may I possibly find online/buy to read and understand better if I’m thinking of converting. I’m not 100% sure yet. And i have nothing against either of the sects. I Just want reliable sources to know better. And I’d appreciate all sorts of help. I also do not know how converting from Sunni to Shia works but I’d love to know. thank you.
  3. Dealing with Autism I wanted to write something about the topic of Autism, because when I looked back I have never seen this topic addressed by anyone in our Muslim community. Autism is a growing issue in the world as one in 68 children are diagnosed with this condition. I wanted to address a few issues about dealing with Autism in hopes that it may help someone who is a parent, loved one or a friend of someone with a child who has Autism. I’m not going to go into what Autism is exactly, because that would be a lengthy discussion and there are plenty of websites and books dealing with this t

    Please Help

    Assalam Alaykum, my name is Basheera and I am a Shia woman. I was born into an incredibly strict Sunni family, but happily I converted a few years ago when I was 18. I had severe depression trying to figure out my identity and purpose of life until I found Shia Islam, and luckily now I am much healthier, mentally and physically. However though, I have a big problem. Please please read this whole thing before you comment and don't insult me because I've been seeking help for years, from imams (all Sunni though) and Muslim friends. This may be a bit long but I am seeking answers and help. While
  5. Hi I am a shia convert Alhamdulilah since the past 4 years and honestly it has been incredible at the same time it has been difficult aswell. I just wanted to know why is it so diffcult for shia community to take a revert and make him/her a part of their family and even takes them time to make him/her a part of their community. Especially seeing that a convert already faces the bigger challenge of going against their parents and entire family to believe but these difficulties I would suppose would dishearten several individual who would like to convert. Any comments on this?
  6. Hello guys, I have been a Sunni Muslim all my life (27 years) and have converted to Shia Muslim and currently looking for detailed books on 1) History of Islam (Where the split started and all the subsequent events in full detail - specifically from Shia Perspective as that's what I want to know more about) 2) Religious Practises of Shia Islam (Majalis and beliefs that are different from Sunni Islam) 3) Knowledge of Shia Islam (details about Imams and important dates and their importance) I will appreciate it if one of you brothers can help me in this journey. T

  8. Salam! After being with my Shia friends, as well as researching both Sunni and Shia doctrines, I've converted into a Shia Muslim ( I was a Sunni before). It's been three weeks as of today, and its been difficult since I live with my Sunni family. The thing is, I haven't told my family yet. They don't depsie Shias, they are just very pro-Sunni. I know that if I do, I will be disowned and I will get kicked out of my house. What should I do? I know I have to tell them soon, and the truth will come out, because it'll create a lot of problems in the future. There were times were I almost got c
  9. Assalam alaikum dear brothers and sisters and may the blessings and mercy of Allah be upon you all. I saw another user make an introduction, so I thought I would too. I came to Islam as the light at the end of the tunnel and attended the only mosque in my Welsh county, slotting by default into hanafi ideology. I moved to a England and to larger Muslim and mostly Indian/Pakistani community after marriage. Despite members of the Welsh community telling me that the community in this English city was better, it became quite clear, quite quickly that they weren't right. Increa
  10. From the teachings of Imams (عليه السلام), the virtues of marriage are clear. Examples: The Prophet (S) said, “One who marries, has already guarded half of his religion, therefore he should fear Allah for the other half.” And in the Qur'an: “And marry those among you who are single and those who are fit among your male slaves and your female slaves; if they are needy, Allah will make them free from want out of His grace; and Allah is Ample-giving, Knowing.” (Surah an-Nur, 24:32) I am a 21 year old male who goes to university in Canada, and I will be graduating in 2 years Insha
  11. I recently became convinced of Twelver Shia Islam but have been up to this point following the Hanafi madhab. Although I have been able to find many great books to learn more about Shia history, philosophy, theology, etc., it is hard to know where to begin in regards to changing madhab. I do not know any Shia personally and I do not live near a Shia mosque. One thing I really do not want to do is change in an uncoordinated way and be practising some kind of Hanafi-Jafari hybrid which is acceptable to no scholar of any perspective ever! Maybe this is too vague. To be more specific, what sh
  12. In short, this text relates a debate that took place during the reign of Seldjuk king Malikshah I (the son of Alp Arslan) between sunni and shia scholars, qnd which resulted in thea conversion of Malikshah and the famous vizir Nizam al Mulk to shia Islam. How reliable is this ? http://www.sacred-texts.com/isl/mub/mub.htm
  13. [ADMIN NOTE]: This is a thread devoted to sharing stories and issues pertaining to all reverts to Islam, particularly Shia Islam. Allah bless you. Salam Alekum, I am writing an article regarding women reverts to Islam. The common belief amoung researchers is that the vast majority of revert women between 17 to 35 are married to non revert men (arab, persian, indo/pak, etc). So I would like as many revert sisters as possible to participate in order to get some good information regarding this subject. Please do not vote unless you are a revert to Islam, a women, (not born into a muslim
  14. As-salamu alaikum to all, To keep this brief. I am in a permissible relationship (mutah) with a female (I am a male) who at the beginning I envisaged as being the perfect wife/potential wife for me. My outlook was based on her character, qualities and behavior which I am satisfied with. However the missing piece was her religious outlook/lack of, which plays a huge role for me and in my personal opinion overrides the prior qualities. I therefore decided to give this relationship an opportunity based on her character and what her religious outlook ideally could be in the future if it is wo
  15. I have a friend who is kind of interested in Islam and mainly the differences between Shias and Sunnis. She keeps asking me question so it’s actually she and not me and I tell her about Jesus and Mary in Islam she gets even more interested before I do anything crazy as making her convert to Islam or something I want her to be sure about what she’s researching. Do u have any Shia hadiths or saying in the Quran that might interest a Christian as her or someone that is looking for answers? Need your help guys, I know nothing about hadiths and very little about the Quran.

    Marriage Advice

    Salam to all, I wanted to get a few opinions and advice preferably from someone who has or knows someone who has been in a similar situation. Background: I met this girl who was a non-Muslim and didn't ascribe to any religion she had an interest in me and brought forth her interest in Islam. So we spoke about the possibility of getting married as there was mutual attraction, characteristic wise and physically etc. Of course as a Muslim you cannot marry a non-Muslim so I told her at the beginning that it would only work out if she was to become a Muslim, however I made it clear t
  17. Salam aleikum What are some good YouTube videos explaining the fundamentals of Islam whether conferences/lectures/sketches. Something with a bit more substance than just bullet points. This should be suitable for those new to Islam with little to no familiarity. Thanks.

  19. As Salam Aleykum Hello everyone I am an Australian Christian who two years ago wanted to learn more about Islam because of the climate of terrorism which unfortunately we have a problem with still today. I have read the Qur'an and as I read more of it I believed it to be the words of god. I researched the prophet's life, his teachings and courage all inspired me to believe that his characteristics were that of a true prophet. When I met some Sunni Muslims and asked about Ali and Karbala a event that frequently popped in my research. I was told Shi'a were pagans that believed Ali was a god
  20. (First of all; I'm sorry for my bad English) Hello everyone! My name is Laurencia and I am from Chile. I'd like to convert to Shia Islam, but I am not really pretty sure about how to do it. I had never met anyone who can help me, and almost almost all web pages about Islam in Spanish are of sunni orientation. I want to be a good Muslim but I find no orientacion or guidance. I was wondering if you could help me to become a Muslim woman and to follow the God's journey. Thanks you so much.
  21. Bismillah al Rahman al Raheem, Salaam alaikum, I am a convert Alhumdullillah, if 10 years and I follow Sayed Kamal al Haydari, formerly my husband and I followed Ayatollah Sadr (may Allah lighten his grave and have Mercy on him). But we have since seen the necessary importance of following current and living scholars. First question : does anyone know how to get any English works of Ayatollah Sayed Kamal al Haydari, besides what is already on his website which is only 2 works I believe. Any supporting materials in English or newer lectures that have been translated to Englis
  22. Salaam, I am an American Shia Muslim, raised Sunni. I learned about the Ahlul Bayt and read some more then came to the conclusion that to be the Shia of Ali was the right path. I only really know the surface levels of Shia Islamic practices, but just like the Sunni Madhabs, there is a lot of variance in opinion on several things. Ayatollah Sistanis website has been very helpful, and I tend to refer to his judgement for consistency, but is there anything in the west or online where one can get a foundation on Shia fiqh? (Since I live in America, going to Iraq or Iran really is no
  23. salam, I am a convert from canada and i was looking to expand my knowledge and going to study in a hawza. i only speak english, french and really basic arabic, would the hawza still be suitable for me? where could i develop my knowledge better najaf, qom? would other hawza be more suitable for me? Thank you
  24. Salaam alaikum I am a revert to Shia Islam (reverted three years ago at the time of writing this). I was hoping to get in touch with fellow reverts, be it from UK (where I live) or abroad. Just to share stories, network, make friends and help each other out with common revert issues. Moral support and things like that. I had set up my own website called Revert Hub, which helps reverts learn about the basics of Islam and share their stories. Unfortunately, I did not have time to maintain it but iA I might restart it depending if reverts think, something like that would help them
