A Brief Description of Islam as the Shi'ites Believe
THEISM AND MONOTHEISM
1- THE OMNIPOTENT'S EXISTENCE
We Believe that the Almighty, and omnipotent God exists as the Creator and Ruler of the universe; and that the traces and signs of His greatness, knowledge, and power is apparent through the different aspects of any thing that exists; i.e. in human, animals, vegetations as well as in the planets of the skies and the higher worlds.
WE BELIEVE that the more we think over and study the secrets of all being things, the more we shall get to know of God's greatness, and the extent of his unlimited knowledge, and power.
The progress of scientific researches will open new doors, extending the dimensions of our thoughts, which serves to increase our love for HIM, and to take us closer to HIS sacred essence. The approach will draw us to the immense light of God's glorious beauty. We do read in the Holy QURAN:
"On the earth are signs for those of assured faith; as also in your own selves. Will you not then see?"
THE HOLY QURÙŽAN S51: 20 - 21
"BEHOLD! In the creation of the heavens and earth, and the alternation of night and day - there are indeed signs for men of understanding.
Men who celebrate the praises of Allah, standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, who contemplate the wonders of creation in the heavens and the earth; (with that thought they say:-) Our lord! Not for naught has thou created all this! Glory to thee, give us salvation from the penalty of the fire."
THE HOLY QURAN - S3: 190 - 191
