Is it permissible to debate so-called Sunnis about our faith when we are not scholars or experts on religious matters? Sometimes we find ourselves thrust into situations where we must discuss our faith’s doctrines to address falsehoods or answer questions.
In the Name of Allah, the All-Beneficent, the All-Merciful.
May Allah bless Muhammad and his Family and damn their enemies.
It is imperative for a believer to be armed with the knowledge they need to understand their faith and have the means to defend it against falshoods. A believer must especially be aware of the very tenets of their faith. We recommend due diligence and that you endeavour to learn more.
