A friend of mine is a Mamen (I do not know if I have spelled that correctly). What does this mean? How is it different from a Hadith Sunni?
Thank you for answering my question.
I believe that the word you are trying to use is “mu’min,” which is basically translated as “believer.” There is an in-depth explanation for being a mu’min in Islamic terms, however, I will provide you with a short summary of what it means. A mu’min is a person who not only believes in God and all the elements of the faith, but also rather has clear and unshakable conviction of these truths. It is this level of belief and certainty of creed that qualifies a person as mu’min. Hadiths are historical traditions that relate events, actions and things said by the Prophet and his Companions. As for “Sunni,” I was not sure if you were referring to the followers or “Sunnah” the actions prescribed by the Prophet to fulfill ones’ Islam. Sunni, in traditional contexts, means a person who follows the Prophet’s ways as ascertained from the hadiths. Considering all the definitions provided it should be understood that these terms do not relate to one another in the sense of any parallels.
I hope I have clarified the issue.
God knows best.
