A Brief Description of Islam as the Shi'ites Believe
Some of them were to take God's Divine Guidance through inspiration to the prophets and apostles.
A group of the angels register the acts of men and women. Some of them take out the souls at the time of death. A group helps the believers who are steadfast to their principles. Some help the believers in the sacred battles. Another group's duty is to punish those who transgress the bounds of decency. They do, all that they do with the permission of God; and in His charge, and these fulfillments are not contradictory with the belief of Monotheism, and the unity of acts. This also proves that the intercession of the prophets and saints on behalf of the guilty people, is in accordance with Monotheism, for it is done by the leave of the LORD GOD.
"No intercessor can plead with the LORD, except after His Permission. (Has been obtained)
THE HOLY QURAN - S10: 3
We shall give more details about this in our discussion on the prophethood.
9- WORSHIP NO ONE BUT ALLAH
WE BELIEVE, that no one is to be worshipped but the LORD GOD. If any one worships any other than Him, he is surely a polytheist. The missions of all the prophets were turning around the center of the unity of worship. This is frequently mentioned in the Holy QURAN and all the scriptures. It's remarkable that We Muslims have to repeat in our daily prayers as a slogan that:-
"You alone We worship, and only Your aid We seek."
THE HOLY QURAN _ S1: 5
It is evident that the belief in the Prophet's -TÂ¨S intercession which is found in the Holy QURÙŽAN, is not a sort of worshipping of the prophets or saints. Also, to ask a prophet or saint for a help in solving our problems, is neither worshipping them, nor is it contrary to the unity of acts, the detail of which is given in the chapter on the prophethood.
