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 Sunni sources. For example, Tabari who is a famous Sunni historian about him says: ﮐﺎﻥ ﻋﺒﺪﺍﻟﻠﻪ ﺑﻦ ﺳﺒﺄ ﻳﻬﻮﺩﻳﺎ ﻣﻦ ﺃﻫﻞ ﺍﻟﺼﻨﻌﺎﺀ ﻭ ﺃﻣﻪ ﺳﻮﺩﺍﺀ" Abdollah Ibn Saba ...

Many scholars -mostly from the athar school (ahl al hadith wal athar)- have forbidden to play cards and/or to play chess. And mostly the reason behind this is that it could lead to distraction from doing the prayers at time and from the remembering of Allah. For Imam Malik and Ahmad it would fall under sad a-dhra'i سد الذرائع: "Prohibition of what may ...

Nikah Misyar This marriage is a normal Islamic marriage with the exception that the husband and wife give up several rights by their own free will, such as living together, equal division of nights between wives in cases of polygyny, the wife's rights to housing, and maintenance money ("nafaqa"), and the husband's right of homekeeping, and access etc. and ...

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 ...

The verse of Khums is: "And know that anything you obtain of war booty - then indeed, for Allah is one fifth of it and for the Messenger and for [his] near relatives and the orphans, the needy, and the [stranded] traveler, if you have believed in Allah and in that which We sent down to Our Servant on the day of criterion - the day when the two ...

That two verses after the main verse of Ayatul-Kursi (255/2) are not a part of Ayatul-Kursi, but we sometimes read them for more sanctification and reward (thavab). The main verse (of Ayatul-Kursi) is: اللَّـهُ لَا إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّومُ ۚ لَا تَأْخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلَا نَوْمٌ ۚ لَّهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ ۗ مَن ...

I have read this in Sahih Muslim, where Hussain bin Sabra asked the same question to the Prophet's companion, Zaid bin Arqam. Here is the answer to the same question. Bk 31, Number 5920: Yazid b. Hayyan reported, I went along with Husain b. Sabra and 'Umar b. Muslim to Zaid b. Arqam and, as we sat by his side, Husain said to him: Zaid. you have been ...

It depends, a Zaydi Shia is different from an Imami Shia who is different from an Ismaili Shia. And there are differences even among individuals. Depending on the Aqa'id of the imam, he may be considered a Kafir in Sunni Islam. If this is so then prayer behind him is invalid. I don't think that Azan effect validity of the prayer, though you may want to ...

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

Most of Islamic jurisprudence is based on two sources, the Qur'an and hadiths, this is the same between Sunnis and Shi'i. Even when both follow the same Qur'an, there are a lot of different opinions regarding the hadiths.

I just want to know, what is the use of asking such a question? Even if you found out the answer what will you do with it? Also the Question You ask, has a problem with it. You are asking for Ahadith to prove if Jin are Shia or Sunni. But you must remember, in the time of Prophet there was no sect known as Shia and Sunni... So how can there be hadith from ...

I'll mention both views (Shia and Sunni) in this answer: Both the Shia and Sunni agree that the verse 41 in Surah al-Anfal orders Muslims to give fifth of the goods to whoever mentioned in this verse: And know that anything you obtain of war booty - then indeed, for Allah is one fifth of it and for the Messenger and for [his] near relatives and the ...

My question: How someone can know and be sure that he is the representative of the imam Mahdi ? Wali Faqih has some required term that are set by Ahl al Bayt and specially Imam Mahdi (a.s.) before start of his occultation. So the required terms are known. And the Wali Faqih himself does not select himself. It is said that Imam Mahdi a.s. selects the best ...

Sufism is more of a denominator for a specific approach to Islam. This approach can be found in the teachings of Sunni as well as Shia. Check the site of the Halal Monk for conversations with different spiritual leaders and artists of the Muslim world. Some of them are rooted in the Sufi tradition but sometimes they're Sunni, sometimes they're Shia.

Well 1st i think there is a difference between sunni and shia view of ahl-ul-Bayt (beginning on who are included in ahl-ul-Bayt). And as far as i know most sunni people have a big respect for ahl-ul-Bayt and try their best to treat them well. Now, if you mean by early days the time of the rightly guided Caliphs then at that time there was AFAIK no ...

The following answer does not intend to hurt the feelings of our dear brothers and sisters of Ahle Sunna as we are all followers of the same religion.

As I ...

But below are some qualitative ...

As reported by different sources they are most likely Sunni Muslims, but this does not matter; this is a humanitarian disaster. Shame on world organizations

As "Imam" in Arabic also means leader it is fine -from this perspective- to call 'Ali ibn Abi Talib an "imam". See also: What's the literal meanings of the word "Imam"?, What is the reason for interpreting word Imam to book in Quran? and What is an Imam, is he simply the leader of the jamaat?). However when sunni's usually call him imam they ...

It is possible, but you can not be sure just because of it Ali ibn Abi Talib was an Imam for Sunnis as well: Caliphate is الإمامة الكبرى the caliph is the great Imam. Ali was one of the four rightly guided caliph. Leader in congregational prayer is called Imam, Ali lead prayers. Foremost experts in a field of knowledge (like fiqh or hadith) are called Imam. ...

As Shia religion is based on teaching on IMAM JAFFAR SADIQ(AS) and Imam(AS) is the grandson of IMAM ALI (AS).. The way RASOOL ALLAH (SAWW) teaches to Mola Ali (AS) they delivered to their grandson IMAM JAFFAR SADIQ(AS).. As Ahle-Sunnat follows the teaching of Hazrat Abu Hanifa.. He was one the scholar of his time, which came after 70 years of RASOOL(SAWW) ...

The people differed on him, although the majority seem to have considered him Thiqah.
