Mashallah brother.

A good way to attend majlis in muharram is pretend to go to holiday to another City with some freinds. But go alone to a highly populated shia area for muharram.

This can benfit you in making shia freinds an in the future when u get comfable you could move to that shia area.

However I don't advice this if ur younger that 18-21.

 i would love to attend a shia mosque but because i'm in taqiyya and it's a small community i know word would leak out and i would be ostracized in my own community which i have been a part of for more than 20 years...

 

 

Salam brother and welcome to the faith.

 

If you find it difficult to go to Shia mosques or Imam Bargahs, you can watch Urdu majlises on YouTube.  That may give you some relief.

 

Here are a few.

The Indian scholar Ayatullah Gharavi speaks in excellent Urdu and his knowledge is perfect knowledge.

 

There are heaps of his majlises in You-Tube

(salam)

Do not despair for you are in hallowed company; all of our holy Imams (`alayhim salaatu wa salaam) were persecuted and eventually martyred by their enemies (the Ummayads, Abbasids, Khawarij, "Sunnis", etc.)

Also remember the sayings of Imam Sadiq (`alayhi salaatu wa salaam) such as " taqiyyah is 9/10 of the religion of my fathers" and "he who has no taqiyyah has no religion".

Do whatever it takes to protect yourself, even if it means renoucing Shi'ism and living as a Sunni publicly. I pray for you to be free to practice your religion freely one day in sha2 Allah ta'ala.

Also, there are many many lectures online in Urdu and English if you would like to watch them instead of going to a Hussayniyya. Most are on YouTube so if you know how to get around the filter, just search from some. Otherwise, there are some on other sites.

Best of luck in sha2 Allah. Stay safe and trust in Allah tabarak wa ta'ala.

May Allah Protect you and guide on the straight path, and be his loyal servant Insha'Allah. You are not alone in this issue. Many of your types, in many different countries, face this, even much worse. don't hesitate to ask any questions, everyone here is your brother and sister. If you need any guidance in Narrations, Books, Rija'al, history, please ask. There are also many knowledgeable brothers in the "Quran, Hadteeth" sections. I hope you find peace and harmony in your situations and overcome your difficulties.

Salam alaikum.Mashallah I have recently decided to follow Shia school of thought too alhamdullila, for much the same reasons as your self brother. We've been blessed with open minds brother, alhamdullila, I consider myself muslim rather than shia but with the Ahlul Bayt (A.S) we have great ispirations to follow, an unbroken chain of the prophets family (PBUH) right upto the 12th imam (A.S) Alhamdulilla. Look forward to speaking again brother and learning from all the knowledgable members of Shia Chat. May Allah bless Muhhamad and his Holy household. Salam
