You may have remembered before that I figured I might move to Turkey in about 5 years since I'd love to make Hijrah, and I want to know about what life is like for Shias there. I'm hoping to go to a Shia mosque and just talk to some brothers, I've been working on my Turkish and hope to get to at least B1 level before I go there. 

Anyone know any good mosques?

According to the International Quran News Agency (IQNA) from Istanbul, the city of Istanbul with more than three thousand mosques has become one of the cities full of minarets and spiers, and from every neighborhood and street you pass, the spiers of mosques are taller than the buildings of several You can see the floor of this city and, more importantly, in all these mosques, daily prayers are offered in congregation and, of course, in the presence of the majority of worshipers.

Among the more than 3,000 mosques in Istanbul, 40 are for Shiites, and the founders of these mosques are three Istanbul clerics and scholars, including; Salahuddin Ozgunduz, Shir Ali Bayat and Hamid Turan are the ones who have built Shiite mosques in the Shiite areas of Istanbul over the past decades or helped Shiites build mosques.

JAFARIS IN ISTANBUL

Quote

Although today there are Jafaris in small groups throughout many parts of Istanbul, Halkalı (Küçükçekmece), Haznedar (Bahçelievler), Fevzi Çakmak Mahallesi (Bağcılar) and Kayışdağı (Kadıköy) are areas which host the greatest population of Jafaris.

 

Quote

Today Valide Han, located in the Mahmutpaşa district, still an important commercial center in Istanbul, is the center for Iranian businessmen. The masjid located in this commercial building (han) was assigned to the Iranians upon their request. This masjid, which is known today as the Iranian Mosque or Valide Han Mosque

Another important center for Iranian Jafaris in Istanbul is the Iranian cemetery and the adjacent Seyyit Ahmet Deresi Mosque located inside Karaca Ahmet Cemetery in Üsküdar.

known as the Iranian cemetery, is preferred by Iranian Jafaris.

 

Quote

Halkalı has become the district with the highest concentration of Jafaris in Istanbul and the Zeynebiyye Mosque has turned into the most important Jafari center in the city.

 

Quote

Imam Ali Mosque located in the Fevzi Çakmak district of Bağcılar, Merkez Mehdiyye Mosque in Haznedar in Bahçelievler, Ebu Talip Mosque in Ikitelli and Imam Hüseyin Mosque in Kayışdağı in Kadıköy are the largest Jafari mosques and the locations they are built in are areas with the highest concentration of Jafaris. In addition to these, there are also Jafaris in areas like Yakacık, Ortaköy, Zeytinburnu, Tepebaşı, Esenyurt, Arnavutköy, Altınşehir and Mahmutbey; although fewer in number, these populations also have their own mosques.

For Jafaris, mosques are not just places of worship, but also multi-functional centers where various social activities are carried out. One finds wedding and conference halls, as well as gyms next to the mosque; this is particularly true for larger ones. Even civil society organizations initiated by Jafaris such as societies, charity endowments and sports clubs have been built around mosques. Of note, CAFERIDER (Association to Introduce, Research, and Educate in Jafari Beliefs), CABIR (Association of Jafari Scholars of the World) and the Association of Ehl-i Beyt Scholars are the most important Jafari civil society organizations. The prayer leaders (imam) who work in these mosques are known as ahunt.

The most important ritual of the Jafaris, in addition to acts of worships, is the Ashura commemoration/lamentation performed in the month of Muharram.
