Greertings. I am looking for Shia groups or individuals in Tokyo or nearby in Japan. There is a large Sunni mosque in Tokyo but so far I have been unable to find any Shia presence, discussion groups, etc.

Does anyone know of an organized Shia group in Tokyou/Japan?

Much thanks in advace for any replies.

Jazaakallahu khayral jazaa, brother.

I have changed my madzhab from Sunni to Shia in November 2007. Before, I married a converted-sunni muslimah from Japan. Due to this change, I would like to introduce Shia Islam to my wife, yet I find difficulties finding Shia Islam books in Japanese. Recently a brother who lives in Tokyo recommend me a book so-called "Shi-a Ha No Jigazo". How could I get that book? I have contacted Hussainiya there through e-mail, but unfortunately I did not get any reply :(.

Syukran!

As-Salamu Aleykum Va Rahmatullahi Va Barakatuh.

Hello, my brothers. I am a shia living in Tokyo. I am originally from Azerbaijan. I have been looking for shias for a long time, but I always find sunnis. Alhamdulillah, they are our brothers and I have always been supported by them but I really wanna meet some shias and talk about. :)

Al salamo alaikom everyone,

 

I am right now on a visit in Japan, and staying in Sendai for the next 10 days. I was wondering if anyone knows if there is any hussainia or shia mosque that I can visit? I would love to create some connection between them and Sweden (where I live). 

 

I read about the one in Tokyo, I will be visiting it later, but if there is anything here in Sendai, it would be wonderful.

 

 

best regards,

Shivan

In the name of God.

Hi

I'm a M.Sc. student and want to apply for one of Japan's universities for PhD studies.

But there are somethings which really obsesses me and that is living in a society with unknown religion, or better to say a country with diverse religions. As you know some of them are known as "Kafar" in Islam, and Islam has some limitations in contacting with them, because they (not all of them) are regarded as "Najes".

Again as you know Islam has not this limitation for the Christians or ones who regarded as "Ahle Ketab". So my question is this:

 

Am I right? I worry about making decent relations with people.

Are Halal foods easily accessible there?Especially in Tokyo.

Is there Islamic groups to contact with? How about Shias?

Thank you.

Salam brother,

 

Sorry for the late reply, I just saw this.

My experience from the short (ca 2 weeks) visit to Japan is extremely positive. I seriously cannot explain how respectful, helpful and good mannered the Japanese people are. 

 

Let me give you and example. I have lived in Sweden since I was 11 years old (I'm 26 now), and never have I encountered any positive reactions when e.g. saying that I don't drink alcohol because I'm a Muslim. They typical reactions I have gotten here in Sweden is "Really!? That's really boring, what do you do instead when you want to have fun? How boring."

Do you know what the reaction was in Japan? People literally said "Wow, such a healthy religion", just as I was preparing a discussion and the typical "how boring", I was really chocked by their response and the respect they show.

 

Or another example, will keep this one very short: 

 

I entered restaurant, very hungry, restaurant full, asks if OK to join a man's table, man was alone as well, man says of course!!

We talk and talk, man done with meal, orders a beer.

Me: thank you for wonderful talk, must go, man says no stay this is fun.

I answer: Cannot sit with someone drinking alcohol, respectfully explains why.

Man cancels his order (keep in mind this is his daily routine, eating dinner here, having beer, then go home and sleep),

after canceling order, he says "Tonight I enjoy company of my friend".

 

 

Those are just two of the many stories I can tell you about how lovely they are.

 

As for the Halal food, for me it was a disaster. I couldn't find anything, and I have seafood, especially Sushi. Wasn't pleasant at all. Ate vegetarian a lot, they do have McDonald's and other fast food chains, and there you can get a McFish.

 

Best of luck brother!
