    I want to know why :puppyeyes: No argument causation thingy majig intended.
    Ask in the "Ask a Muslim" thread.

    Edit: I'll give you a short answer

    They (shia) think it is bid'ah started by Umar ibn AlKhattab (ra). They beleive he saw the prophet (saw) praying Tahajjud in the mosque at night in Ramadhan and so adopted the idea of special night prayers in Ramadhan (Taraweeh). However, what they (shia) have failed to realise is that the prophet (saw) used to lead the people in Ramadhan for the Taraweeh prayers but he suddenly stopped it due to thinking people will think its fard and pray it every Ramadhan, when infact its sunnah only (voluntary). Anyway, Umar ibn Alkhattab revived this practice when he was Caliph.

    By 'they' are you referring to the Sunni or Shi'ite Muslims :ninja: I'm a bit slow
    Also, it is fard but I thought your fast doesn't count for much unless you actually pray..?

    I wouldn't mind,except we pray in a different way to sunni muslims,so going there might offend some of the people...and I'd rather not do that
    That's really silly, we are all muslims after all, sunni or shia that should not stop us from going to the mosque. A mosque is a mosque (the house of Allah SWT) there is no such thing as a sunni/shia mosque, this type of mentality keeps the muslims divided.
