Salam all,

At the moment I am trying to understand Shia'ism and I was wondering if any of you guys could recommend any books that could give me a good insight on practices, beliefs and just Shia'ism as a whole? So, far I have read After the Prophet by Lesley Hazleton and it gave a pretty good Shia perspective of historical events as surface knowledge. And I have read up on some stuff on websites like al islam but I wanna know more in-depth things like I had mentioned previously.

And I'm really not sure where to go from there. Any help will be much appreciated.

Salam. These links from al-islam.org lead directly to short pamphlets that you can read for free or print if you need:

Shia Beliefs

Shia Laws and Practices

Shia Personalities

Merits of the Soul

Diseases of the Soul

You can definitely buy Al Kafi and Bihar Al Anwar on Amazon nevertheless . www.al-buruq.org is a very good bookstore with Shia books . Also Amazon and that website has great book biographies of Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Imams .
