Day Questions

I am a new Muslim I have been following Sunni Islam I have now read some books on Shia Islam and I would like to become a Shia but there is no Shia mosque where I live can I still pray like a Sunni and go to the Sunni mosque?

There is nothing wrong with visiting Sunni Mosques but the prayer should be according to the sect of the Ahlulbait as believing in their path imposes the believer to so do as they are the smallest amongst the two weighty things that the Prophet (peace be upon him) commend us to refer to.

I have a Sunni friend who asked me why Shias mourn mainly for Imam Hussein (peace be upon him) whereas there were many martyrs in Karbala?

Shias mourn all the martyrs of Karbala. They remember their faithful dedication to sacrifice themselves with praise and respect, whether they were among the Ahlulbait or among the other companions. It is customary in some Shia communities to specify a day within the first ten days of Muharam to remember one of the martyrs of the companions of the Imam as well as a specific day for Abbas bin Ali (peace be upon him) and other members of the Ahlulbait.The Ziyarats that were narrated from the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them), were specified for Imam Hussein (peace be upon him), while they also mention the companions with praise and Salam. It is natural that Shias will mainly mourn for Imam Hussein (peace be upon him) since he was the Imam and the rest were his followers and companions, in addition to his relation to the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his holy progeny).

I would like to know of His Eminence the Islamic position on certain forms of animal exploration as vivisection, bullfights..Etc?

Vivisecting an animal is allowed for exploring a scientific fruitful truth. As for bullfights, it is a must to forbid it because of the torture to the animal without a reasonable reason also it includes wasting the animal and it is a religious prohibition

Is the blood of an Imam or a Prophet (peace be upon them) najis?

It is not fruitful to discuss such issues that do not concern us. The Imam (peace be upon him) knows his duties best.
