People across the globe believe that shia and sunni are the two different sects. Both of the sects have different religious beliefs, therefore it has been understood by people that they cannot come under the same umbrella ‘Islam’. Many people have this faith that due to the entirely different conduct of life, shia and sunni cannot marry with each other. However, before making such bold claims, complete research is very important to know the reality. So, before marrying with a shia man or woman, one must know that there are two types of shias:
One of the types of shia holds disbeliefs (kufr), that the Quran has been altered, Hazrat Ali (R.A) is worthy to worship and here Shirk (to worship someone other than Allah) occurs, the angel Jibril made an error in descending the revelation on the Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H) in place of Hazrat Ali (R.A), accusations on Hazrat Aisha (R.A) of committing adultery or denying the Companionship Hazrat Abu Bakr (R.A).
However, the another type of shias are those who do not hold beliefs that constitute Kufr, such as believing that Hazrat Ali (R.A) was the rightful first Caliph after the demise of the Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H), belief in the twelve Imams, and all those beliefs which the first type of shias put faith in.
A true Muslim has asked by Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H) that before marrying, Muslim must need to check the religious beliefs, and religious practices in his/her partner. There is a Hadith in Sahih Bukhari that Messenger of Allah has said:
"A woman is married for four reasons, her wealth, lineage, status and Deen. Choose the one who is religious." (Sahih Bukhari)
Even then we being humans do not know that what faiths are hidden in the chest of people and what they are pretending, indeed! Allah knows the truth only. And so, we should avoid those things where we find doubts or dissatisfaction. If we go for things which are doubtful then we are tangling ourselves deliberately in the chaos.

I just now read the story of this young man and the jinn that ruined his marriage
for some reasons I can not see it again after I registered
the answer to your problem is one way and one way only
jinn must be captured and offered to be a Muslim or die
reading Quran helps for sure but is not enough
if you need further help let me know
My name is Ammarah. My nikah has been done and my final departure from my parent's home is near. My problem is date my husband is jobless and financially dependent on me. This financially dependency is causing alot of trouble between us. I request my readers to pray for my current situation , provision and well-being.
JazaakAllah wa khair
I was wondering......you see, I am 19, and when I graduate college I intend on getting married. If I married a Jewish or Christian woman would she go to hell for disbelief if she does not convert? if she would, what is the purpose of getting married? also, according to yasir qadhi, ibn abbas said interfaith marriage is only for within an Islamic country, due to the possibility of divorce and/or children turning away from Islam. What is the scholarly view? (I was born in and live in the West)
I am happy to announce that Half Our Deen Offline is finally coming to the UK! Baba Ali will be in UK and will be hosting an Exclusive Singles Event on Sunday 8th November 2015 in LONDON!

What exactly is HOD Offline?
Half Our Deen Offline is an exclusive event and the only way to get a seat is by invitation. Once an interested person completes their registration for Half Our Deen Offline, their answers will be reviewed. If approved, they will receive an invitation and instructions to complete their payment to reserve their seat at the event. Approval is based solely on the responses we receive to the survey. The goal is to only invite those who have a real chance at finding a match at the event. For example, if you are looking to marry someone between the ages of 35-40 and the majority of those who fill the survey are under 35 attending would be a waste of your time and money. In order to keep the event organized and balanced, seating is limited and based on a first-come basis.
How does one Register for the event? Fill out the survey ( www.hodoffline.com/register ) to sign-up for the event. All registrants will go through a filtration process to determine the likelihood of finding a compatible match at the event. Once HOD determines the compatibility ratios for all registrants, they split them into groups based on who they are likely to find compatible . They then send out invites to those who made it to the final list of brothers and sisters who they believe will have a high chance of finding a match at this particular event. If the invited do not pay within the time specified to reserve their seat, the next most compatible registrant is sent the invite. Register early to ensure you get in.
