Marrying 12ers and attending 12er majalis

salaam alaykum wa rahmetullah wa barakato,

is it permissible for a zaydi shia man to marry a 12er shia woman if her stipulation in the nikah is that the kids should be raised as 12er shias? Also, is it permissible to attend the 12er majlis where they mourn for hussain (as)?
wa alaykum as salaam wa rahmatullah wa barakatuhu.

Thank you for your question! Because Zaidis see themselves as the Saved Sect (al-firqa an-naajiya) mentioned by Allah's Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him and his progeny), it would be impermissible to raise the children on anything other than Zaidism.

As for attending 12er majalis, one should be wary not to participate in the ritual mourning and wailing that takes place because of the hadith narrated from Imam Zaid (as) in the Majmu' in which the Prophet prohibited such. There shouldn't be a problem for one to attend in order to gain knowledge about the events of Karbala and the like.

And Allah knows best!
