But there were 2 very separate issues here. Then how can this verse be related to permanent marriage?! Sunnis often have similar beliefs or practices, but they are not necessarily seen as the most important. He lost many close family members, relatives, beloved companions etc, did he ever mourn the way the shia does? All religious orders such as salah, sawm, hajj, zakat take place in Alawism. I would not want them to believe for example that only Salafism is the right way, or that only Shiaism is the right way. Nobody knows the exact circumstances of that, they reportedly had a hostile relationship, and there is some evidence which suggests a door may have hit Fatima and caused a miscarriage, but like i said the evidence, in my opinion is not strong enough to take a stance on this matter.
He gets support from sunnis and shias, because the two sects are united for him. But they were prohibited by Umar. A total of six verses have to be delivered publicly: no such words or sentences are pronounced by either the bride or the groom except their acceptances for their getting married with each other, which is usually just one word. But only once I asked a Shia collegue, an educated but staunch Shia. Very interesting, well written article on ground realities. There are many Sunni practising pious brothers you could get married to.
Demographics With somewhere between 80% and 90% of the world's Muslims identifying as Sunnis, Sunni Islam is much more common than Shia Islam, but Shias make up the religious majority in a few countries like Iran and Bahrain. I suggest you to look for another girl who follows the Sunnah. I believe Shiaism is just another school of thought. Would you like to answer one of these instead? It must be awful living in a country where schools the streets meetings they are hating the west. Our beliefs are hundreds of years old - we keep interpreting our religion the way it suits us and expect others to follow our beliefs.

Muhammad al-Mahdi was meant to be in Shia Islam, but he disappeared when he was six years old. Sunni Muslims recognize and respect Ali as the fourth who replaced , the third caliph. Marry women of your choice two or three or four; but if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with them then only one. If either of the marriage is unconsummated then there is no waiting period for woman to remarry another man. A Sunni nikah ceremony thus has a shorter length of time.
Khoemini was a decent man as far as i can tell, i agree with most of what he says, not all, but most. Do you think that our Prophet if present today would approve of such uncivilised way of mourning? Imad Khan: I had been married for 29 years to a woman of the same sect as me - after that time, we divorced. Divorce is not forbidden as a last resort, however the dissolution of the contract , is often described as the most disliked of permissible things in Islam and should be used as a last resort. This part of call for prayer was abolished by Umar as well. He must have been fed up of talking about it by this point. How can u not morn for your prophets grand kids? If couple have sexual intercourse the process of divorce becomes void.
To cut a long story short there is nothing that is stopping the guy from marrying you from a Sharia perspective. So, marriages which are merely irregular under Sunni law will be treated as void under Shia law. There will always be people who disagree with our marriage. My mother has been sad and crying a lot, because she is afraid something bad would happen. Anyone who believes that is a muslim.
We talked about the differences and came to an understanding of how we will approach them. People claiming the opposite are those who want to use Alawism as a tool to realize their aims. Shia believe Muhammad explicitly requested Ali to replace him in his teachings e. He threw names at me like Zubair and Muawiyah. Public affirmation of faith and propagation of teachings The Shia allow 'Taqiyya': which is to be able to deny faith when under grave danger.
Ali is similarly vital to Sufi Islamic beliefs. I myself belong to a family that has a history of inter marriages, almost all are successful till today. His father, on the other hand wasted no time. We have become a society where we are not encouraged to discuss anything. Such companions include Hazrat Abu Bakr R.
I pray that Allah gives you and many like you that are looking for a wife a rightous women, very kind, full of mercy and one that will love you and you love as well. Notable exceptions are Sufi schools. Now im just badly stuck in this problem we dont wants to end our relation but need a solution for our problem so that both families would be happy.
