Guest posted a topic in General Islamic DiscussionSalaam Alaykum all, may this message find you well. I am a Shia female that belongs to a very respectful family alhamdullilah. However during my journey at University I came across a Sunni male. We want to get married. We are aware of the challenges this may pose and have in fact spoken about it before because we do not want any problems to arise after marriage especially with our kids. It will take a lot of compromises though but most aspects of Shiaism are not a problem for him. As you have figured from the title, I have already approached my parents and all I have received is a no. I was expecting this, however I do think persistence may pay off. Do not get me wrong, I do not want to engage in anything haram nor do I want to compromise with my Aqidah. I have discussed with the man I wish to marry that I strongly believe Ali should have come first and I have immense love for the ahlulbayt. my parents do not see it that way and are afraid of what the community will think and think my faith will fade and I will divert to the wrong path. I do not want to make my parents unhappy or do the wrong thing but I am willing to learn about both sides for my own sake so that my faith is not merely inherited. Although from what I do know I am convinced I am on the right path but I do acknowledge that we are all muslims at the end of the day and the ummah really needs to unite at this point in time. Also, when my father refused I asked for him to do an Istikhara for my own reassurance and he refused because as my wali he does not accept the person I wish to marry. Is it true that the wali is the one that should take an istikhara or can I do it myself? Also, do you think I should? Finally, I am an Agha Sistani follower who says that if there's a chance of being misled, marrying a Sunni is not permissible. However as I mentioned earlier most things we can agree to and I will continuously be practising my Shia faith. In conclusion I would like some advice on how to approach my parents and get the to agree. Also if you are aware of the ways and ruling on istikhara. Please let me know. Thank you Jazakallah
(salam) I would first like to introduce myself. I am a Palestinian living in America and by definition I would be considered a Sunni Muslim. I want to start this topic because I have heard many different things about the differences in beliefs between Sunni and Shia Muslims. Before I continue I would like to point out that I am not doing this to insult anyone or be judgmental. My only intention is to get some clarification of the differences between Sunni and Shia beliefs. I view each and every-one of you as brothers and sisters and Allah (SWT) is the one and only judge. Here are a few questions to start off, again I am not asking these questions to insult anyone it is pure curiosity:: Do Shia Muslims in GENERAL approve or disapprove of cursing ANY of the Sahaba (Companions of the Prophet)? How are Sunni Muslims viewed in the eyes of Shia Muslims? Is it true that some Shia Muslims use stones while praying? If so, for what reason? Sunni scholars have determined that Alawiyeen (ie Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad) are kufar (non-believers) because they believe Ali (RA) is devine. Have Shia scholars come to the same conclusion? I hear a lot about the 12 Imam's and this concept is non-existent in Sunni Islam, can you give a brief summary of who they are and the purpose that they serve? Is Ali (RA) more beloved to you guys than the other Sahaba, particularly Abu-Baker, Omar, and Othman? If so, why? I have many more questions but I would like to start off with those. I am going to mention once again this is not a trolling post and I am not trying to start a flame war. I just want some clarification because I have heard many rumors about Shia Muslims and I felt the only way to find out would be to ask actual Shia Muslims. I want to thank those in advance who give honest replies. Allah Knows Best.
so online there's this picture floating around claiming in Volume 2 of Tahzib-ul Ahkam, on page 116 in Kitabul Makasib, there's a quote that says "The wealth, the property and everything which belongs to a Sunni is actually yours (is legal for you)" Now I'm very skeptic about the quote and the picture. I need someone who owns Tahdhib/Tahzib-ul Ahkam to: please verify for me whether or not this quote exists if it is on page 116 if it is in volume 2 and what the wording is. Please guys! http://pbs.twimg.com/media/BVg9wD3CAAAQo1u.png:large
