All descendants of Sayyid Muhammad Al-Makki/Mahmud Al-Makki who came from Mashhad to Sindh in the seventh century, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Asalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu- Hello brothers and sisters. I have a former coworker, an older Sindhi man, that sends me salaams every morning and calls me every week or so. We both worked at an Indo-Pak restaurant/grocery store together for awhile and still keep in touch. He's a sweet man, always saying he misses me in the little bit of English he knows. The only issue is that he was quite saddened when I began following the Ahl-ul-Bayt. There is a bit of a language barrier between us, so I was hoping that maybe some of you here might be of assistance. I've tried explaining that we have 5 prayers, but that even in Sunni references there is no error in joining dhuhr with asr and maghrib with isha. I'm not quite sure he understands what I'm saying, though. Also, like many Sunnis, he's pretty caught up with the "ya Ali" thing. I'm new to Shiism myself, so could hardly explain this kind of thing to him in English let alone Urdu or Sindhi. Anyway... I was looking for some help. It's not that I'm necessarily trying to guide him to Shiism, that's not my job. Allah, inshallah, will see to that. However, I'd like at least to be able to explain to him that he's misunderstanding Shiism from even the Sunni perspective. I realize that he is more than likely Hanafi, so no amount of ahadith will probably change his views on joining prayers at home. I should also mention that we are over 1200 miles away from each other, he in Louisiana and me in Michigan. You can reply here, or feel free to send me a message if you have any ideas. Jazakallah khayr Khoda hafiz
