Question:I am having a duscussion with some of my cousins regarding Quran and Shia creed. They are all sunnis (salafi). Their question is most of the sunni muslims follow the recitation of hafs narrated by Asim. The chain of narrators of the Quran are authenticated in Sunni books. But they could not found any authentication of these narrators in shia sources. As far as I know Hafs learned the quran recitation from Asim and Asim learned from Abdur Rahman Sulami who learned from Imam Ali (as) and they were all Shia narrators. But they are claiming that they were all Sunnis and Shias have taken quran from Sunnis. My questions-

1. We all know the Quran that is in our hand is in perfect form which was revealed to the prophet (sa). But what is the proof? How do Shias authenticate this?

2. Is there any different chain of narration of the Quran for Shias different than Sunnis?

3. Shias also follow the hafs qirat and this is the most pure qirat. But how do I prove to my brothers that the narrators were Shias? Is there any specific valid reference?

Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer:

We all follow our Imam and as they accepted this Quran so we are also accepting this Quran which is authentic Alhamdulillah.

Question:What is the permissibility of using dice, those that are found in common board games especially in the west? For this purpose they aren't used for gambling but they are generally known to be tools for such. Does the mere association with gambling make them impermissible to use or is it completely fine if used in the aforementioned context?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer:

If a game is specific for gambling only, it's not permissible. If it's used for both as mentioned, then it may be used for non gambling purpose except the cards which are very common in gambling, it can't be used for non gambling also. Things like dice are not so specific with gambling and are used for normal playing also it can be used for non gambling games without any bet.

Question:I'm pretty sure its halal fiqh-wise, but spiritually/akhlaq-wise is my real inquiry

In regards to singing of (not ghina type) Christian-authored songs with the niyyah of dhikr, magnifying God, and lifting ones mood, perhaps better / safer to turn the Qur'an Pak instead?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer:

If the wording are just praising Allah s.w.t. and no negative thing as per our ideology then one can sing or listen but no doubt Quran is the message of Allah all mercy ever mercy it has much more deep effect on souls and minds

Question:Can you recommend a book that defines the way of salah and the way of wudu?

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer:

Check https://www.al-islam.org/

Question:Another question is about the way of wudhu. As I do not belong to a Muslim family, I am searching for the right way. As per sahih Muslim in the chapter of book of wudu hadith number 162 describes to wash feet thoroughly but I saw some video of YouTube in which the people of Shia community believe in wiping their feet. What are the evidence for supporting this case.

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer:

Actually reading one hadith and deducting a result is not the way of getting a Islamic law, rather one has to go through Quran and all hadith regarding that act and then a certified person announce the result if that act is compulsory or we have a choice or it is forbidden. On the contrary in other sects a single hadith is quoted and result deducted. The results are very clear
