Shia Beliefs

Twelver Shia Muslims have five principles:
  1. Tawhid (توحید): Allah is the only God in the world.

  3. Imamat (امامت): After the prophet, there are 12 Imams,
    responsible for guidance and leadership of Muslims. They are appointed by Allah.
  4. Fairness: Allah is Fair, he doesn’t oppress anyone
    God does not punish people who have obeyed and worshipped him, and does not reward people who have disobeyed Him
  5. Resurrection: All mankind will be resurrected on the Day of Judgment
    To be judged for their actions and rewarded or punished, depending on each individual’s worldly conduct
