Bro. Salim I regularly attend the local Sunni mosque for Jumaa and during Ramadhan also the Zohr and Asr prayers. I have not attended any Shia mosques but I am sure if you befriend some Shia or go their mosque they will welcome you. I am aware of many card-carrying Bohras who attend lectures of vis...

Re: When you reach the age of reason, will you reject supernatural religion?

For Muslims in general and Shia Ismailis in particular, reason plays very important role in understanding religion. They do not go against each other. While you can understand religion through reason, you can't do the same thing with Allah. It is tough to understand Allah by logic because Allah is a...

Belief that Quran is altered and has 10 more chapters and they are with their MHI. This is 0.00001% of ismailis. I don't think we can ever be able to fix them.
