884 jumuah prayer Salam.
i am a new convert to Shia islam at aged 33 from Sunni madhab.


My question is when praying jumah behind the ahlul sunnah imam. i pronounce surah hamd in a low voice that i cannot hear but when the imam reads the next surah after surah hamd it is difficult for me to copy him, should i ignore listening to that and recite a surah of my own for example surah ikhlas or something similar. and after my prayer has finished do i do the takbirs (3) in my heart and mind (actions). before the imam has finished his salat. Jazakallah khair.

892 Friday prayers with sunni imam Assalamu Alaikum,
I am inquiring about whether Friday prayer is valid if its prayed behind a sunni imam, keeping in mind that they perform Jum'a prayer differently from shia and they do not include qunoot. And also can the prayer be counted instead of Dhuhr prayer if it is prayed behind a sunni imam in this way.
Thank you

907 Missed prayers Question: Salam
1. If a muslim missed prayers for 10 yeara, k must he repay all these prayers FIRST before doing other prayers such as the Night prayers? Will his Night prayers carry any merit if he performed them even though he has not finished repaying his Obligatory prayers? I would appreciate it if you can quote some hadiths regarding this matter.

2. Men must read loud the first two rakaats for fatiha and surah for subuh, maghrib and ishak; what about women, do they say all their prayers in a soft voice or whispers.?

Thank you

925 Namaaz e Jafar e Tayyar Salaams.

In performing Namaaz e Jafar e Tayyar, in the second rakat, we have to pray Qunoot as usual?

At the end of second rakat, after Tashhud, do we have to say the salaams (eg. Assalaamu alaika wa rahmatullahe wa barkatuho)?

I'm Galih Panuntun from Jakarta, Indonesia. I'm living in a Muslim Sunni Majority area.

I still confused about The Ruling of Praying behind them. One side there is an information that we slow to pray with them in mutaaba. On this term we allow to pray with the with niyat jamaat but must recite surat. But anyone Inform us to play furada and automatically recite surat etc.

Can you explain more detail about this rule?

According GA Sayed Sistani
