Shi'aThe Shi'a constitute 10–20% of Islam and are its second-largest branch. They believe in the political and religious leadership of Imams from the progeny of Ali ibn Abi Talib, who according to most Shi'a are in a state of ismah, meaning infallibility
edit: if u found my question offensive, then i found IRS offensive, cause Shina/sunni r both Muslims with the same Shanda, unless Wahhabi's include something else in it, and i wouldn't be surprised if they did
Why are there too many inflictive questions about Shia and Sunni?
We have all the same Allah, the same Quran and the same Prophet. Is there anyone who can say he doesn't love Sayidina Hassan and Husin? Only Allah knows who is Muslim. These kind of questions indicate that some people are followers of Americanism. If u hate Shia,u r not Muslim, if u hate Sunni, u r not Muslim. If you hate followers of Islam, u r not Muslim.
The belief of Shia Islam is that what makes a person Muslim is la aloha Illa Allah WA Muhammad Rasul Allah. We believe that what makes a person a Shia Muslim (therefore perfecting his belief) is La aloha Illa Allah WA Muhammad Rasul Allah WA `Ali waliy Allah.
We do not make takfir on Sunni Muslims. We certainly do not make takfir on someone just because he does not declare witness that `Ali waliy Allah.
The islamicweb.com site is extremist and makes several lies against both Sunni and Shia Islam. It should not be trusted as a reliable source of information about anything Islamic.
"I testify that there is none worthy of worship except God, and I testify that Muhammad is the messenger of God."
"I bear witness that there is no god except for God (Allah), and Muhammad is the messenger of God."
The Shahada is the Muslim declaration of belief in the oneness of God and acceptance of Muhammad as his final prophet. Recitation of the Shahadah is the most important of the Five Pillars of Islam for Muslims and is performed daily.
the Shanda for Sunnis and shies is the same
please lets not segregate amongst us Muslim
