Pearl of Wisdom

'When it was dark and part of the night had passed, Abu 'Abdillah (AS) would take a sack of bread, meat and money, and carry it on his back to the needy of Madina. He would distribute it among them Imam Ja'far b. Muhammad al-Sadiq (AS) whilst they did not even recognise him. When Abu 'Abdillah (AS) passed away, they missed [the aid] and realized that it had in fact been Abu 'Abdillah.'

Question : #111 Category: Salaat / Prayers
Subject: Friday prayers with Sunni brothers
Question: Can we pray Friday prayers with brothers from a different school of thought, and if so, what's the ruling according to Ayatollah Sistani?
Answer: Salaam alaykum,

One of the conditions that Sayyid Sistani puts on the leader of congregational prayer is that he must be a twelver Shia. But, in another place he said that one can perform congregational prayers behind Sunnis (the question was pertaining to Mecca and Medina), but one has to recite the hamd and Surah, even in a low voice.
