Are muslims allowed to have Shia as friends. Socialise with them etc

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Are we allowed to be friends with Shia, even though there beliefs contradict the teachings of Islam. jazakullaah khaire


The ruling regarding associating with Shias is the same as associating with
non muslims. It is permissible to deal with them, assist them and sympathise
with then at times of grief and pain. A bosom relationship is not
permissible with them as that may lead to compromising ones correct beliefs
and express complacency to their unislamic beliefs. Any type if association
with them besides a bosom relationship may be used as an opportunity to
advise and guide them on the correct beliefs and practices.
