    One thought on “Shi'a”

    1. Approaching religion in general and Islam in particular as a seeker drawn to the esoteric or deep underlying meaning of religious truisms, I was blessed to be able to be influenced heavily by Sufism during my conversion process and subsequently in my life as a Muslim. I specifically have steered clear of sectarian divisions between Sunni-Shia during this time as I have tried to the best of my abilities to understand the basics of all of Islam: Qur'an, Hadith, common Islamic theology, Shariah, me [...]

    2. Good introduction on the topic. Seyyed Hossein Nasr's introduction provides a background into why this text was written, which is a good way in which to read the book - directed at modern audiences, introductory, not polemical, etc. The text itself is really superb and very readable. It goes through the origins and history of Shiism (and provides hadith-proofs for Shi'ism), the major Shiite divisions, Shii thought on matters such as eschatology, the role of the Prophet (peace be upon him), and t [...]

    3. I think this is one of the most beautiful books that I had read on Islam in general. This book was not about what is right with Shi'ism and wrong with Sunnism (as per my original perception since it is written by a Shia Scholar), on the contrary it was a complete guidebook for understanding Islam as a whole.The breakdown of chapters:Chapter One was dedicated to the split between Sunni and Shia and continued onto the second chapter which talked about the divisions within Shia Islam. Chapters Thre [...]

    4. A great introductory book to Shi'a Islam. The core principles are explained in sufficient detail by an authoritative individual. Having said that, the book is not exhaustive in its arguments nor does it satisfy a person's search for Shi'a answers. It is simply an introductory book. A good read overall.

    5. بسم اللّهدقت علامه در انتخاب کلمه و موقع سخن ستودنی است. هرگز چنین کتابی را روزنامه وار یا حتی کتاب وار نمی شود خواند. قدم به قدم با کلماتش باید پیش رفت و در هر کدام تأمل کرد. درست متوجه می شوی که با ذهنی منظم و پرداخته روبرویی. اعتقادم این است که شیعه در اسلام را همچو منی به تنهای [...]

    6. In assigning stars to a book on religion, I don't presume to evaluate the substance of an author's faith, and for this book, I am wholly unqualified to judge whether Tabatabai accurately summarizes and reflects the history and core beliefs of the Shi'a tradition. However, the version I read, translated into English by Sayyid Husayn Nasr, provides an excellent and accessible overview of the history of Shi'ite faith. The proofs of God and the discussion of divine characteristics and qualities show [...]

    7. THis book is a follow up to "An introduction to Shi'i Islam." While the former book falls into the category of crtical scholarship, this book is written by very well respected Shia scholar. This book was billed as an important inseiders view of the Shia branch of Islam.
