Associating with shias

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Many of my muslim friends say that you can’t eat at a shias house but I believe as long as they are muslims and share the kalima, there is nothing wrong as long as it is within the halaal limits. Kindly clarify because i have many ithn ashari friends and wouldn’t like to cross Allah’s hukum.


A: Refrain from this. Shias and Muslims are poles apart. Hence it is not permissible to associate and freely mix with them.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
