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 should I change first? My opinion would be my wudu and salat as it is to be performed daily. Any other views? If not, what next? Also I can find a few online resources on how to pray in the Jafari way but is there any online resources you recommend for this and other things? Thanks so much in advance! I am so happy to have found Shia Islam. Jazakallah khair.
I have learned that there are significant differences between the videos I have seen on Shi'a salah as compared to what I have been practicing as a Sunni, following the Shafi'i Madhab. These differences include: combining prayers, prostrating on a Turbah (prayer stone), not saying Ameen after al-Fatiha, the recitation upon standing from Jalsa, different words in Tahhajud, saying SubhanAllah, Al hamdu lillah, la ilaha illAllah and Allahu Akbar 3X in 3rd and 4th rakats instead of al-Fatiha, saying salam once straight ahead instead of to right then left, and 3X Allahu Akbar to end salah. I have similarly recognized differences between the 4 Sunni Madhabs and chose the Shafi'i as it seemed to me the most authentic as being based on Hadith collections.. The questions I have are, "What is the basis for the Shi'a way of offering salah and why is it significantly different?" Is it based on Shi'a collections of hadith or passed down by word of mouth and demonstration? Should we not follow the way that Prophet Muhammad (saaws) prayed as closely as humanly possible?
Sallam everyone, I'm new to Shia Fiqh, My Sunni friends have easy to follow syllabus for fiqh books they study in various schools. In indo/Paki they have the darsi nazami syllabus that outlines what students will study over a period of years. Is there anything similar from the shia tradition, does anyone know what syllabus they follow in Qoum, or other parts of the world ? Anyone know of any good basics books on the jafari madhab, fiqh of sallah and 5 pillars?
Assalamu'alaikum! Dear members, as you can see this is my first post on this forum. I have come here because, being a Sunni Muslim, I was a bit troubled by the variation in the Sehr/Iftar timings of Hanafi and Jafari schools of thoughts (these are the two main madhabs followed in my country). There was a consistent variation of 10 minutes between them. The Shias always closed their Sehri 10 minutes prior to the Sunnis and began their Iftar 10 minutes after them. Why is that? What is the jurisprudence behind this? Jazak'Allah
(bismillah) Salam, I have a question regarding the schism that occurred at the death of Imam as-Sadiq(as). As far as I know, Imam as-Sadiq had initially intended his eldest son, Imam Ismail, to be the Imam after him. But since Imam Ismail passed away before his blessed father, Imam Sadiq appointed his younger son, Imam Musa Kazim, as his successor. Two points of inquiry: 1)Since only someone infallible can be the Imam of the time, does that mean that originally Imam Ismail was also infallible? 2)Since we know Imam Musa Kazim(as) was infallible, could it be possible that Imam Sadiq had 2 infallible sons, the same way Imam Ali(as) had 2 infallible sons? ws.
