  1. Why does the Naqshbandi Golden Chain of transmission trace back to Abu Bakr through Jafar as-Sadiq, a Shi'a Imam? My understanding is that each Shi'a Imam was taught by his predecessor, which was also his father, so it should trace back to Ali instead of Abu Bakr as Sunnis claim.
  2. (salam) As I was looking at the other thread about shia sufi orders, I was wondering if any of you has already BEEN to one of them sufi orders gathering, or even been a MEMBER of such orders. I am talking about shia (or at least labelled shia) orders like Oveyssi, Nematollahi/Gonabadi, etc... It seems these orders are mainly Iranian, and to be honest I am quite curious about them, for the irfani aspect. However when I look up, I tend to believe they are quite strange. There are a certain number of their centers across the world, and the organizations seem to be quite well off, judging by the beauty of the buildings. By looking at the pictures posted below, you will see what seems to be their rituals : sitting looking towards an empty place, sometimes standing and covered as for salah, but men separated from women by a row. http://www.mto.org/centers/usa/dallas PS : I am voluntarily not asking about sunni brotherhoods since many of them are quite famous and they tend to respect shari3i principles. Basically do you bris/sis have insight about them tariqas ? Thanks
