Questions tagged [shiism]

The Shia (Arabic: شيعة‎, Shīʿah) represent the second largest denomination of Islam and adherents of Shia Islam are called Shias or the Shi'a as a collective or Shi'i individually. Shia Muslims believe in Imamat as one of the five pillars of Islam and this belief makes them different from other Muslims. Imamat means only Allah has the right to select the political leader and Caliph for Muslims.
