The Shi’a Response to Queries Regarding the Ahl al-Bayt (a)
By Z.M. Khalkhali
This book aims to address core Shi’i beliefs which have been under scrutiny since the martyrdom of Prophet Muhammad (s). Khalkhali critically reviews sources from both the Sunni and Shi’i schools of thought and offers a commentary on a number of historic events such as Ghadir Khum, the Battle of Karbala and the dispute concerning the land of Fadak.
Backed by original research, this work endeavours to address theoretical and factual disagreements by providing a thorough critical analysis.
