The only material we pray on is mud that is pure and clean. We don't pray on clay to "worship it", haply we pray on it because it is considered as a pure material, and as all Muslims — Shi'a and Sunni — believe that one must be clean and in a clean environment to pray. I once asked my Sunni friend: "Why do you Sunni people pray with your shoes ...

In the name of Allah The story of Abdullah Ibn Saba is not valid because there are many contradictions his story. Shia scholars do not accept him never. But there are some Hadiths about him in the Sunny sources. For example, Tabari who is a famous Sunny historian about him says: ﮐﺎﻥ ﻋﺒﺪﺍﻟﻠﻪ ﺑﻦ ﺳﺒﺄ ﻳﻬﻮﺩﻳﺎ ﻣﻦ ﺃﻫﻞ ﺍﻟﺼﻨﻌﺎﺀ ﻭ ﺃﻣﻪ ﺳﻮﺩﺍﺀ" Abdollah Ibn Saba ...

Sunni don't use a stone (Muhr) as the shia because there is no authentic hadith from the prophet (PBUH) which say we should only pray on a stone. On the contrary, Praying on Mud/Clay only contradicts the verses that claim Islam is not ...

Due to this Hadith it is obviously clear that if a person needed any help he must return to God, not to anybody else, even Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). And this is an order, not optional. عن عبد الله بن عباس رضي الله عنهما قال : كنت خلف النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقال لي : يا غلام إني أعلمك كلمات : احفظ الله يحفظك ، احفظ الله تجده تجاهك ، **إذا سألت فاسأل الله** ،...

f1. Is asking help from other people always Shirk? Definitely not. Many times we ask our parents, our teachers, our friends and other people - when we are faced a problem - and they help us.

I can only give an answer based on the sunni view, so anything i might say about shi'a is an assumption and should be approved or rejected by some of our shi'a bothers and sisters. Also note that -as far as i understand- this doesn't answer your question in the whole. Why I think there's a kind of intersection is: I have seen, read and heard a lot of ...

There is difference of opinion on this, the following interpretations have been related: It means the rulers ( أمراء ) who are appointed over people.
