Sunni vs. Shia


Assalamualaykum Warahmatullah.

There is one thing that bears in my mind. We Muslims, are splitting up. Is it true that we hate Shias, or can say that we don’t like them? What is our perspective towards them? Why there is so much hatred? Why do we Sunnis hate them and they hate us back? What is Hazrat Mahdi (r.a)’s opinion about Shia? And why do Sunni’s Tasawwuf line has slightly in common with some issues in Shia madhab but the Sunni’s Syria line, doesn’t? In my personal point of view, I really don’t like the hatred. Jazakallah for your reply, sir


wa `alaykum salam,

We need a reconciliation between Shia and Sunnis today more than ever before. In December 2010, Saudi Shia and Sunni representatives in Medina signed a document to “live as one family.” This is a good example to be followed by others.
