A Brief Description of Islam as the Shi'ites Believe
So the prophets may inform of the unseen through the inspiration of God. It is in the Holy QURAN that the prophet says:_
"I tell you not that, with me are the treasure of Allah; nor do I know what is hidden, (THE UNSEEN) nor do I tell you that I am an angel. I only follow that which is revealed to me."
THE HOLY QURAN _ S6: 50
This, of course, refers to the substantial knowledge, and not the knowledge obtained by Divine teachings to the prophets.
WE BELIEVE that these reverend prophets have performed miracles and super natural acts by the leave of God; and because we believe their miracles to be with the permission of God, we don't consider that a sort of polytheism. According to the HOLY QURAN; Jesus Christ raised the dead to life again, but by the leave of God, and healed the incurable diseases:_
"By Allah's leave", said Jesus; "I shall give sight to the blind, and heal the lepers, and I raise the dead to life, (with the permission of God.)"
THE HOLY QURAN _ S3: 49
17 _ THE INTERCESSION OF THE PROPHETS
WE BELIEVE that all the prophets, particularly our prophet, are in a position to intercede with God on behalf of a certain group of sinners. This intercession must be, and is by the leave of God.
"No intercessor can plead with Him, except after His leave."
