Example text

They said that 'Ali had committed an error and he should either repent or be killed. 'Ali defended himself by giving them evidence from the Qur'an and citing the reasons for the action, but they were not convinced. Over ten thousand of 'Ali's men, all Shi'is, left his army. It is one of the puzzles of history that a group of people who believed in 'Ali and had made great sacrifices for his sake, who knew him to be right and his enemy wrong, and who had even risked their lives by going into battle for him should desert him and even take up their swords against him.

Page 1 INTRODUCTION The events of the past decade certainly have drawn the attention of the West to Twelve-Imam Shi'ism, but they have done little to bring about a greater depth in understanding Shi'ism as a religious tradition within Islam.

Allamah Tabataba'i considers this tradition from its philosophical, as well as its religious, significance. In order to understand Shi'ism, it is important to note that although Islamic philosophy more or less perished as a distinct school in the Arab world after Ibn Rushd, it survived in Persia more and more under the protection and patronage of Shi'ism. This later tradition of Islamic philosophy, which reached its peak with Mulla sadra and also played an important role in the intellectual life of India, is central to the Page 7 understanding of Shi'i religious thought as well as philosophy.
