2. At a Madrasah level, a teacher needs to teach all the facts of Islamic history. One cannot compromise on the belief and faith.
One needs to differentiate between holding religious views vs social harmony and peaceful co-existence. Peaceful co-existence is a need of Muslim Ummah and is something practiced by our Imams and senior aulama. Madrasa teacher needs to teach their students that anger is not the only way they can demonstrate their faith. Rather they can choose a better way of dialogue or invite others towards our faith through the actions.
3. Ayatullah Sistani's websites quote: http://www.sistani.org/english/qa/01262/
Question: Can one say one’s congregational prayer behind a Sunni Imam with the intention of Jama'at (congregation)? And should one recite al-hamd on his own?
Answer: It is permissible to offer prayer in their congregational prayer. However, it is obligatory upon you to recite al-Hamd and Sura-e Tawhid yourself – be the recitation in low voice though.
Question: I am 19 years old and a convert to Islam of five months. My question is, being a practitioner of Twelver Jaf'ari Islam is it permissible for me to pray behind a Sunni Imam for Salaatul-Jummah and for regular congregational prayers, and is it required to prostrate on Turbah inside a mosque?
Answer: Taking part in Friday and congregational prayers of the Ahl-e Sunnat is permissible in areas where Taqiyah (dissimulation) is required. If you are not going to face a problem, you should, as far as possible, prostrate on a stone or anything upon which Sajda (prostration) is permissible. Prostration on carpets in the case of Taqiyah or out of necessity is permissible and there would be no objection in it. But if you are not offering your prayers with them out of Taqiyah it is not necessary to attend their congregational prayers and you can offer your prayers separately.
It is in order to perform Sajdah on paper, if it is manufactured from allowed sources like wood or grass, and also if it is made from cotton or flax. But if it is made from silk etc., Sajdah on it will not be permissible.
It is not allowed to perform a sajdah on nails.
5. Umul Momeneen means the mother of the believers. It means that a believer can't marry prophet's wife.
Yes, its an honour for her but she confronted Imam Ali (as) on the issue of Imamat and Khilafat which she was not supposed to do and this degraded her position.
