Becoming a shia

Q: I have committed zina twice. I repented once after the first time and made the mistake a second time. I’m not sure if my repentance will be accepted by Allah Ta’ala. After I committed the crimes I became a Shia Muslim. Have I taken the wrong path? I really need help.


A: You cannot be a shia and Muslim. It is either shia or Muslim. One who becomes a shia is out of Islam.

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