Sure she can read Shia books to learn about the Shia, but i would recommend Peshawar Nights if shes interested in seeing the difference in beliefs and misconceptions about Shia. I think she should read the book i recommended before the rest, you can find it on al-islam.org if u search it.

Wasalam.

If your friend wants to learn about Shia beliefs, reading hadith books wont help her, as the majority of us follow maraji' who determine which ahadith are authentic and which aren't, aka not all the rulings in the books are going to be correct. Also fiqh is only 1 of 3 parts of Shiasm, as we are very different than Sunnis in that we are largely into spirituality rather then our religion being a religion of rules that we follow in our life and that's it...

So honestly, if she wants to learn about us she should find books by scholars who talk about the Shia and who we are, our general beliefs like imamat, and the ghayba, etc.

Wasalam.

I wouldn't suggest Usool al Kafi or the other ahadeeth books unless she is able to distinguish which are Sahih, hasan, dhaif, etc.

Peshawar Nights and al-Muraj'at

walaikum assalam

well she is sunni ofcourse and how wud she know the difference she has studied from madressa i have no idea

and if usool e kafi is written by a shia writerwhy would it contain zaef hadith in it???

i havent read the whole book myselff i dont know what to tell her

she doesnt wanna read munaziara but you guys are keep on suggesting me books of munazira :S

why cant she read any book other thn munazira

and why noone has said anything about these shia books that i mentioned in my first posttt

i need to have reason inorder to stop her from reading the books she is gonna read

usool e kafi

tahreer waseela

hukumatul islamia

she has said these books are written by our famous writerss

usool e kafi

tahreer waseela

hukumatul islamia

the first has many weak and even fabricated narrations. she mentions alamah majlisi, say even he said about 65% of al kafi's narrations were weak.

the second is the risalah of ayatullah khomeini.

the third is a book by ayatullah khomeini regarding wilayat al faqih

tell her to read nahjul balagah, sahifah sajjadiya books by ayatullah mutahari etc...

no only al kafi has weak narrations the other two are not hadith books. lol and if she plans to read it give her a few years to complete it. how about adl-e-ilahi by shaykh mutahari?

btw i think she mentioned these books to you because anti shia websites/books bring the up a lot.

u know thats the only reason i was worried aboutt as she must have got to know abt these books thru anti shia webs or anti shia ppl dunno

and so i wanted to make sure that these books wud b a good start for her as i kinda pushed her to know abt shiaasm

i myself as u can see is nt very into reading books whtever info i posses is wht i hear in majalisis or online but nt the whole book itselff

so yeahh i m gonna let her know den abt usool e kafi that it has weak ahadeeth

and i tihnk nahajul balagah wud b a gud start for her ryte??

what i think is funny is the fact that sunni CLAIM that this book event never happned ,,and stupidely attack the questiosn and answers to these questiosn in the book

but they can not CAN NOT refute THE

1- ANSWERS GIVEN IN THSI BOOK

2-SOURCES GIVEN IN THSI BOOK

3-FACTS IN HISTORY PROVEN BY HADITHS AND KORNA IN THIS BOOK.

sunni that attacked thsi book made a propaganda of the attack not the actual contenst of teh book

I dared and challenged so did some shia in this forum and others to disect it ,,,no sunni was up to stop blabbering about it and do some real discusiion
