How should I change from Hanafi to Jafari madhab?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I recently became convinced of Twelver Shia Islam but have been up to this point following the Hanafi madhab. Although I have been able to find many great books to learn more about Shia history, philosophy, theology, etc., it is hard to know where to begin in regards to changing madhab. I do not know any Shia personally and I do not live near a Shia mosque. One thing I really do not want to do is change in an uncoordinated way and be practising some kind of Hanafi-Jafari hybrid which is acceptable to no scholar of any perspective ever!

Maybe this is too vague. To be more specific, what should I change first? My opinion would be my wudu and salat as it is to be performed daily. Any other views? If not, what next?

Also I can find a few online resources on how to pray in the Jafari way but is there any online resources you recommend for this and other things?

Thanks so much in advance! I am so happy to have found Shia Islam. Jazakallah khair.

Dialogue on Taqleed

I suggest following Sayyed Al Sistani, but that's your choice.

More about Taqleed on Al-Islam.org for example.

Also the same book is a great start: " Jurisprudence Made Easy  " 

If you choose Sayyed Ali Al Sistani, May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) prolong his life. then you can for example Google: " Sistani Prayer " and find links as

Salat: The ritual prayer » General Rules

More about prayer:  (Al-Islam.org ) http://lmgtfy.com/?q=al-Islam.org+prayer
Hope this helps
