A Brief Description of Islam as the Shi'ites Believe
THE HOLY QURAN _ S7: 188
19_ THE PRINCIPLES OF ALL THE PROPHET'S MISSIONS ARE ONE
WE BELIEVE that all the prophets pursued the same aim which is the prosperity of mankind, through faith in God and the resurrection, and by religious training. This is why we respect all the prophets. We learn from the HOLY QURAN:--
"The Apostle (i.e. Mohammad) believes in that which is revealed to him from his LORD, and so do men of faith they all believe in Allah, His angels, His Books, and in all HIS APOSTLES. They say:_ "We make no distinction between any of the prophets. They also say: we hear (THE PROPHETS) and we obey. OUR LORD! We seek thy forgiveness, that to you end all the roads."
THE HOLY QURAN _ S2: 285
By the elapse of time, man was prepared to have newer and better training. The religions too, gradually turned deeper and deeper, till at last Islam was revealed with that perfection needed to cover all purposes and all times
"The unbelievers at this day have all abandoned to despair of vanquishing your religion. Have no fear of them, and only fear me.
This day I have perfected your religion for you, and have completed my favour to you, and have chosen for you, ISLØ·M to be your religion."
