Reconsidering Shiism

The first incident that called on Dr. Essam to renew his consideration of his vision and assessment of the Shiite entity was that he had obtained the book (Imam Al-Sadiq) by his author Muhammad Abi Zahra, so this book was the first book that gave Dr. Essam the opportunity to look from another angle to the Shiites. Dr. Essam says about this book: "This book - although it contains a criticism of the Jaafari school of thought - but it was distinguished in an objective manner in discussing the buildings and beliefs of the Shiites and its style differs from the approach of divine benevolence and other whose writings are overburdened by subjective and imbalanced methods." From this standpoint, Dr. Essam decided to follow the method of Abu Zahra in his study of Shiism, so he went on to search in a non-fanatic manner until he found the magazine "Message of Islam", an ancient Egyptian magazine, in which he found research that deals with the topic of Shiism. he convert from Wahhabi to Shia Twelver.[1][2][3][7][4][6][5]
