    If your friend...

    This question is especially for those sunnis who have shia friends, others are welcome to have their say but please NO HARSH WORDS!

    If your friend or a close friend is a shia and he suddenly dies and you go to his janaza...
    • Would you insist to his family members to have a sunni janaza read instead of a shia janaza?
    • If they say " He lived a life of a shia, and thus we will do a shia janaza" Will you then participate in it?
    • If it was the will of your shia friend that he must have a shia janaza if he died, will you still insist on having a sunni janaza and if a shia janaza eventually take place will you take part in it?


    Your views on this are appreciated.

              well apart from all understanding of various groups and all what i know is that shia are considered as muslims as sunni even though some sunni argue that they have few wrong "aqaaid" etc. but as a whole when look into the definition of muslim according to Quran and Hadeeth, they also follow imaan-e-mufassil- imaan on seven things - shahadah of which makes one muslim... so yes i won't have any problem... feel free to disagree but when it will come to praying namaaz-e-janaazaa i won't insist to have sunni namaaz instead i will participate in it but will pray it according to how a sunni will do :~)

                Not at all.

                • If they say " He lived a life of a shia, and thus we will do a shia janaza" Will you then participate in it?
                Yes. I will probably offer it in my way while in the congregation, but will offer it.

                • If it was the will of your shia friend that he must have a shia janaza if he died, will you still insist on having a sunni janaza and if a shia janaza eventually take place will you take part in it?
                Does not apply in my case.

                  No - but then why should I suggest that they perform the janaza the Sunni way in the first place.

                  If they say " He lived a life of a shia, and thus we will do a shia janaza" Will you then participate in it?
                  Yes - I don't think I have any say in it.

                  If it was the will of your shia friend that he must have a shia janaza if he died, will you still insist on having a sunni janaza and if a shia janaza eventually take place will you take part in it?
                  I will attend his Janaza according to his will.

                      what is the difference????
                      Both Halal & Haram r evident but between them r doubtful things, most ppl have no knowledge about them. So whoever saves himself from suspicious things saves his religion & honor, & whoever indulges in suspicious things indulges in Haram.

                            There is not much difference.

                            I have attended a shia janaza, some time ago.

                            1. The imam recites all of it in loud voice, as in sunnis imam only says takbeer in loud voice and rest is in low voice (as in zuhr,asar prayers).

                            2. The Dua is different as what sunni pray, and rest is almost same.(may be i am missing something).

                            I did not find anything offensive or drastically different. They were just minor alterations. Which are also evident from the way shia normally pray.

                            The imaam for the convenience of sunni present at the namaz-e-janaza, prayed two times once with shia way and other with sunni way. ( so that sunni do not feel out of place )

                            On the side note I want to say that i came to know the procedure of shia namaz (normal). It is not very much different then sunni's. Just some alterations and nothing wrong i found in their way.

                            Little human: I think there is nothing wrong in shia way ( in my knowledge) so i have no issues.
