Pearl of Wisdom

'The Prophet (SAWA) dispatched an army, over whom he appointed a commander and ordered them to listen to him and to obey him. He [the commander] set ablaze a fire and ordered them to jump in it. Some people refused to enter it, saying, 'Verily we flee from the fire', whilst others intended to enter it. The Prophet (SAWA) was informed of this, about which he (SAWA) said, 'Had they entered it, they would have remained therein forever [i.e. the Hellfire].' And he said, 'There is no obedience due to [one who calls to] Allah's disobedience. Rather obedience is due [when calling] for the good.'

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.
