Scholars' books on Shiite `Aqidah and their details

Q 1: What is the Shiite `Aqidah (creed)? Please clarify as much as possible.

A: Shiites have numerous sects, some are extremists and others are not. Hence, we recommend you read books written by scholars about their sects and the `Aqidah (creed) of each. These books include Maqalat Al-Islamiyyin, by Abu Al-Hasan Al-Ash`ary; Minhaj Al-Sunnah, by Shaykh Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah; Al-Farq bayn Al-Firaq, by `Abdul-Qadir Al-Baghdady; Al-Milal wal Nihal, by Al-Shahristany; Al-Fisal fi Al-Milal wa Al-Nihal, by Ibn Hazm; and Mukhtasar Kitab Al-A'immah Al-Ithna `Ashriyyah, and the like. Here you will get adequate information about their creeds.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
