What does waliyah mean?

From a non muslim's perspective, (since I converted, alhamdulillah) you must first start with where they are so I think the strongest argument for them is with Tawheed, and the nature of Allah swt. Let them know there is no need for blood atonement in order to be forgiven.

Caution: I am still sorting through this, but for people who have a strong dislike for catholics, the imamah are reminiscent of some theology with catholics. so i would approach that carefully or refer them to someone who is very educated in this kind of matter.

The second issue is to describe Jesus or Isa pbuh in the islamic view, because alot of christians would have a hard time with that, and feel like they are rejecting Jesus pbuh. Let them know they are actually not loosing that, but in fact loving him more for not using him as an act of shirk.

Salam aleikum all,

I know this might be more 'advanced' reading for reverts, however these books on the Third Holy Imam, Imam Husain (a.s.) are very nice to read.

I especially recommend Husain: the saviour of Islam, for this book really explains the context in which the tragedy of Karbala took place.

Also the websites below are quite nice, for not only books but also video and audio files.

The Faith of the Imamiyyah Shia by Shaykh Muhammad Ridha al-Mudhaffar  Get PDF

https://www.al-islam.org/faith-imamiyyah-shiah-shaykh-muhammad-ridha-al-mudhaffar

Out of all the books I have read about Shi'a (as a convert to generic Islam), THIS book made the Shi'a beliefs clear to me and did the most to push me to say "I am a follower of the Ahl-ul-Bayt!". It's quite good and quite reassuring to someone who only knows about Shi'a beliefs from third-hand and distorted sources.
