Towards understanding Shia’a beliefs--- (Part: I)?
OK, so several of u shia’as expressed dislike for the word ‘Rafida’ah’, as it seemed to offend u. I post the same question again, replacing that word with the one u prefer. Would u please oblige me with u answers if u sincerely care for the propagation of ur beliefs?
I have been intrigued by certain of our shia’a pals, seeing as they quote from a book---and yet, when we bring quotes from the same one, they get rejected or reported.
So, I have reached the conclusion that my understanding of ur religion may be flawed in various aspects.
I have decided to seek ur valuable guidance in this matter. Please, do tell me which of ur authentic books can be found online? Can u provide me the links to those? I plan to read those, and then ask for ur explanation, my shia’a chums, if something doesn’t seem to fall into place. Does that sound all right?
Just to rout the misconceptions--- I shall make my queries in several separate questions. (this is the first one, the others shall come later, if Allah wills).
I sincerely hope that u shall oblige me with ur kind answers. Again, I hope that u won't choose to deny me the joy of finding undeviating, to-the-point answers.
I would like to let u know that this is my second account. My first one hasn't been suspended yet, but just in case...
Oh---and u may report this too, if it amuses u…I haven’t made double accounts for nothin’. Hail ~ Play the game, chums, play the game!

Unlike giving certain books a blank check of authenticity (i.e. bukhari/muslim/etc), we only deem the Quran as authentic.
As for the books of hadith, each hadith is analyzed under our science of hadith and science of rijal.
As for our most reliable books of hadith, they are as follows:
Usool al-Kafi - Sheikh Kulayni
Tahdheeb al-Ahkam - Sheikh Tusi
Al-Istibsar - Sheikh Tusi
Man la Yahduruh al-Faqih - Sheikh Sudooq
These books are available in Arabic and probably Farsi because unlike other schools of thought, we reliaze that hadith cannot be put in the hands of layman to misinterpret. The study of hadith requires knowledge of Islamic Sciences.
Also a side note on Bihar al Anwar. It was simply a compilation by Allamah Majlisi to preserve every hadith he could accredited to the Ahlulbayt (as). He himself states that his book is not meant to be an authentic collection but rather a preservation. Determining the authenticity of the hadith in his book is up to the scholars on the basis of Islamic Sciences.

The highly regarded books of Shia Islam are:
Sorry, I can't find any of those books online. I'm sure the library has it, or you can order it online.

rofl they'll never answer you! first because they do not know! they know nothing about their so-called religion and second because it's against Taqiyyah!
