. 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 the conception of God, and concludes with a brief history of each of the 12 Imams As someone who has never understood the rationale behind imamah both historical and philosophical justifications , Allamah Tabatabai s book served as an excellent introduction Although I have outstanding questions, it had the right mix of philosophy with history to whet my appetite Highly recommended. 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. 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 the influence of Aristotle on Islamic philosophy The detailed histories of the twelve imams in the last chapter are fascinating Overall, the book affirms the Sunni and Shi ite traditions as mostly very similar, but consistently implies that Shi ite beliefs and practices are just a little rigorous and sophisticated The footnotes are excellent, and include fine editor s notes that explain unclear references in the text. Thankyou Tim for sharing this gem Not as detailed as I expected it to be But still good. 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 Three, Four and Six were a philosophical treatise Chapter Five was dedicated to the Prophet Peace be upon Him and chapter Seven to the Twelve Imams I will recommend it blindfold to anyone who wants a Scholarly perspective on Shi ite Islam. ^FREE PDF ⇳ Shia ✕ Best Ebook, Shia By This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Shia, Essay ByIs Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You
