Taraweeh Prayer

Submitted by Anonymous on Tue, 06/14/2016 - 23:14

Salaam alaykum.

I'd like to ask about performing the taraweeh prayer with my fellow sunni sisters in islam. (not that i want to convert to becone a sunni or if i believe in the sunni hadith about taraweeh), i'd like to know if it is okay to pray the taraweeh prayer for the sake of trying to maintain a certain form of unity and togetherness during this month of Ramadhan, considering also that where i live, the Sunni are the majority while shia are minority..

Tabarra & Physical Abuse

Submitted by Anonymous on Sat, 12/12/2015 - 02:56

Is it permissible to physically abuse and hit another Shia female in the imambargha when she does lana'a on Abu Bakr umar yazid shimr hoormala etc? Is tabarrah haram?

A few Shia women attacked another younger Shia female when the younger female did tabarrah. What should be done when Shia women attack other Shia women in a holy place? The Shia females who attacked said that Ayatullah sistani has given out a fatwa that says tabarrah is haram.

Is it justifiable to hit a momina in a imambargha just because she has expressed her views and she did tabarrah?

Turning Away From Shi'a Islam

Submitted by Anonymous on Mon, 11/30/2015 - 17:41

I have a sister who has turned from Shi'a Islam to being a Salafi. She was influenced by one of her friends, who convinced her that Shiaism is not the right path. Despite trying my best to talk to her about this, she is not open to discussion about it. My father is upset about the situation too and he has also tried to talk to her, but she finds ways to avoid confrontation and even lies to him about her beliefs so that he does not question her further.

Offering Iftari to Ahl al Sunna

Submitted by Anonymous on Thu, 08/06/2015 - 19:18

The president of a neighborhood sunni mosque asked us for help to offer eftari food for all the people coming to pray and break their fast

Some people in our shia mosque offered to help them. Later on, some of our friends got really upset about it and felt really sad about the help that was given Now we feel extremely sad and guilty... have we done wrong by helping these people, knowing that in our country shias and sunni do not fight with each other?

Is it permissible for a Shia Man to perform "Takkiya" when it has become the final condition by the parents of the Sunni (Barelvi) girl that the person must convert to Sunni (Barelvi) for having Nikah with their daughter while the girl knows that the person is Shia and she has no objection over it and she does know the concept of the Takkiya and the intentions of her male counter part.

A non Muslim class fellow posted these questions on my Facebook page. Do you recommend I should answer and if so can you give some guidance on the answers?

"A few questions that many non Muslims would like to have a answer to I think are:

1) Is it possible to leave Islam without fearing for ones life ?

2) Is owning a slave allowed for a Muslim ?

3) Can a female Muslim marry a non Muslim ?

4) Can you choose to be a Muslim or are you one at Birth ?

5) Is suicide permitted to Muslims ?

Salaah of Sunni Brothers

Submitted by Anonymous on Thu, 12/11/2014 - 21:24

salaamun alaykum

What is our duty to our sunni brothers who do not perform their prayers according to Shia fiqh, when we know it highly is unlikely that they will do it according to the correct fiqh if we tell them they're doing their salaat wrong?
