Do Sunni and Shia pray differently?
Likewise, can Sunni and Shia pray together?
Both Sunni and Shia Muslims pray together here every Friday. "Our mosque — the Heydar Mosque is unique, everyone here is equal — there is no difference — Sunni or Shia," Arif Novruzov, a Sunni Muslim who prays at the Heydar Mosque says.
Likewise, what do Sunni and Shia disagree on? 4 about the basic differences between Shia and Sunni Islam referred incorrectly to the Prophet Muhammad's succession. It is a matter of dispute; all Muslims do not agree that he died without appointing a successor. (Although Sunnis believe this, Shiites believe that he chose Ali, his cousin and son-in-law.)
Accordingly, what is the main difference between Sunni and Shia?
One of the most crucial differences between Shia and Sunni Muslims is the importance that the Shiites give to Ali, whom the Sunni do not recognize as being the prophet's rightful successor.
Do Shia and Sunni go to the same mosque?
Yes. Sunnis generally "go to mosques". Yes. Shi'as go to Mosques (Masjid) as other Muslims do.
