Discovering Shi’i Islam


Discovering Shi’i Islam is a brief introduction to main issues related to Islam in general and Shi’i Islam in particular. Though simply and clearly written, it is an outcome of more than twenty years of involvement in Islamic studies. The text studies the origins of Shi’i Islam and its sources, i.e. the, the Sunnah, the reason and consensus. It also studies fundamental doctrines and main practices of Islam. It ends with a brief account of the latest statistics about the present Muslim population of the world along with a breakdown of religious affiliations of some countries with a long history of Shi’i presence therein. Discovering Shi’i Islam represents a sincere commitment to Islamic unity and is hoped to serve as a modest step towards Muslim brotherhood. Indeed, this book echoes the Qur’anic call for unity which extends to all people of faith to unify their efforts and concentrate on their common ground.[divider]

As-sahifa Al-Kamilah Al-Sajjadyya – eBook



Al-Sahifat Al-Sajjadiyya is the oldest prayer manual in Islamic sources and one of the most seminal works of Islamic spirituality of the early period. It was composed by the Prophet’s great grandson, `Ali ibn al-Husayn, known as Zayn al-‘Abidin (`the adornment of the worshippers’), and has been cherished in Shi’ite sources from earliest times.
Zayn al-‘Abidin was the fourth of the Shi’ite Imams, after his father Husayn, his uncle Hasan, and his grandfather ‘Ali, the Prophet’s son-in-law.
Shi’ite tradition considers the Sahifa a book worthy of the utmost veneration, ranking it behind only the Qur’an and `Ali’s Nahj albalagha.

Shi’a [ in islam ] – eBook



This book, which we have called Shi’ite Islam, seeks to clarify the true identity of Shi’ism which is one of the two major branches of Islam-the other being Sunnism. It deals in particular with the way Shi’ism originated and later developed, with the type of religious thought present in Shi’ism, and with Islamic sciences and culture as seen from the Shi’ite point of view.
