Mosque*
I'm just wondering like among Sunni and quranic or Sunni and Sufi or Shia and Sufi. I don't really know how this works. I'm not new to the Islamic faith but I want to go to a masjid nearby. I've gone to a masjid in the past. Over time, I've realized around many muslims I don't exactly see eye to eye with what I believe all the time. I'm a quranic Muslim. I'm just wondering before going should I find out what affiliation it is first or what?


Sorry for spelling problems my phone automatically spell checks some words sorry.

Oh ok sorry. Well the way I see it is actually different. I think the only Islam is followed by the Quran. But I understand that people have other opinions and I'm not going to be rude and say people who I was just wondering if it was ok to go or not? Or like other people's experiences?

سلام علیکم ای برادر(my brother) the prophet Abraham says to Allah give me something that gives me confidence (لیطمین قلبی ). The fountain of solace is here do you hear it by your heart الا ان اولیا الله لا خوف علیهم ولاهم یحزنون م . now indeed who are these human? I narrate you a story seems to the legend: the great Khomeini was in Iraq and his son was killed by the enemies of Iran and they didn't know how they can say issue to Khomeini. Eventually a man said to him. Khomeini only arised and said : انا لله و انا الیه راجعون. Afterwards they said him the enemy forces came tabas(a great desert in Iran)and the sands of Sahara burned up their helicopters and he said the sands were envoy and the commander is Allah! This confidence originates from trust. You are free but you must decide. خداحافظ

Mylife20, given that you are new to the faith, why not just attend and keep an open mind? Our religion is based upon sound proofs, otherwise people would claim the rights of others. Therefore, whether your opinion or their ideas, both must be based upon evidences from our religion. Go to the mosque, pray, greet the people, smile, enjoy conversation and lectures, and go home to your family. In other words, keep it simple. If you're walking around telling people; 'Hi, I'm a quranic Muslim' it is little wonder you're not "seeing eye to eye".

No I don't walk around saying that. It's just I've noticed at my last mosque in reno that There were som differences. And I'm actually not new to the faith. My mom dad and grandparents were all Muslim.

Salam,
I would suggest going to a Sunni mosque, and attend new Muslim's class. Most of the mosques here in the US have these classes to teach and help understand the basics, and move from there on.
I am happy to hear that you are willing to learn and come (back) to the belief God prescribed for all of us. Only practice makes us who we claim we are. And before putting trust in our belief we must learn and know it. I pray that may Allah help you and help us all to follow His deen.
Hasan

Mylife20, I know what your saying. During Ramadan one year we were running late after Magrib prayer, because we had company, and u suggested that we go to a closer mosque, and my sister-in-law said we are not welcome in that mosque it's private.
Well I thought to myself, I'll just go crash that mosque, who are these people to keep me out , if I want to pray!
Then the whole family said, they pray differently, and they believe in a profit after Mohammed! So I wound up not going , I didn't want to be an outcast, it was Ramadan, you are supposed to be asking for forgiveness of your sins, not making others feel uncomfortable.

I still one day would live to go to this mosque, it's beautiful, brand new.
