Do you follow a madhab? I've only recently started really researching them so I'm really not very knowledgeable. Which one do you follow, and what did you learn that led you to follow a specific madhab? If you don't, is there any particular reason why?

I threw in a poll, just because I've never actually used the poll feature before and I wanted to :p LOL

And God hears and knows all things. God is the Protector of those who have faith: from the depths of darkness He will lead them forth into light." [Quran 2:256-257]

I know i'm such a downer when we talk about this..... I just loathe that masjid. I wish I didn't attend it or that they would change. 

I just have so many bad feelings that I dread when I have to go there. I love the SLC masjids.....totally opposite feeling. 

Do you think there's anything you could do to change it? There ARE issues I have with my masjid but really... I'm at a loss as to what I could do to change it. I don't know that they would listen to me.

Correction... Bukhari is still someone a lot of Shias will listen to :-), I would try and research these yourself rather than hear the two sides bickering on what's what. This is a really good read, it's rather long, but it's a good explanation on Shia Islam. http://www.al-islam.org/shiism/

I'm Shia, but don't really say i'm jafari or zaydi...I'm just Shia :-)

Oh neat :) I don't know much about Shia... I'm Sunni I suppose but just recently discovered that there were different madhabs within this... branch? Is that the right word? LOL. I think you are the first Shia I've 'met'... I'm pretty sure I saw someone somewhere say they were Ismaili- which I accidently left out of the poll, I meant to include it since I know there is at least one sister here who follows it- I just can't remember where I saw someone say that at LOL.

If you accept the hadith collections of Tirmidhi, Muslim, Bukhari as valid you are "Sunni".

Shia have different accepted collections of hadith.


 


Please don't assume I am uneducated in this respect.

Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim are considered the most authentic narrations of hadith according to Sunni Islam. There are 6 collections altogether for Sunni others include Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud.

Shia primarily utilize 4 books by the three Muhammeds.

Shiites do NOT consider Sahih Bukhari to actually be "sahih" and do not accept several of the sahaba who are regularly recorded as contributors in the sanad of his collection for example Aisha, Abu Bakr, Uthman, Umar and Abu Huraiyah.

There are quite a few differences between Shia and Sunni and this is one of them.

The one madhab I did like was Maliki for me it was something I could follow and it was kind of funny to find out from a sister from egypt that it was followed in north africa and west africa. I was taking a fiqh class and I was introduced to madhabs to me I liked Maliki the most.

No offense taken at all :)

I was trying to explain these are the 100% accepted collections of hadith in "Sunni" Islam.

I myself spent a lot of time learning about the Islam from a lot of different perspectives before I converted... I am technically "Sunni" but the idea to read the Quran came about when I was on a date with a not practicing Shia guy, years ago. He was a really nice guy too. If I hadn't been inspired to read the Quran, I would have probably went on a second date with him, lol.

Oh really? DH is Army national guard... He wishes he could have gone Air Force actually but with his weight they won't even consider him. Bc of his build he has to be taped instead of weighed but I guess they just don't want to mess with it.
