Explore the cultural and religious practices of Shia Islam, including the unique way they perform wudu, their prayer patterns, beliefs about the Quran, and rules surrounding the validity of wudu.
How does Shia do wudu?

Why do Shia pray differently?
It is just that Shias combine the afternoon and night prayers although it is highly recommend to pray them separately if it is possible. The reason that Shias combine the prayers is based on the practise of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) which is present in the Sunni books as well.
Do Shias have a different Quran?
History. The Shī’ah use the same Qur’an as Sunni Muslims, however they do not believe that it was first compiled by Uthman ibn Affan. The Shī’ah believe that the Qur’an was gathered and compiled by Muhammad during his lifetime.
Does the order of your wudu matter?

Does small fart break wudu?

Does napping break wudu?
Summary of answer If the sleep is light and the sleeper can feel it if he breaks his wudu, then sleeping does not break wudu whether the sleeper is lying down, sitting, leaning on something or sitting without leaning.
