Letter 109

Why do Some Fanatics Question the Derivation of the Shi’a School of Muslim Law from the Imams of Ahl al-Bayt (as)?

Rabi’ al-Thani 23, 1330

We, in our Letter No. 19, had indicated that some fanatics question the derivation of your school of thought, in its roots and branches of religion, from the Imams of Ahl al-Bayt, and we wished to ask you about this matter. Now is the time to ask such a question; so, could you please answer it in a way that would refute their claim? Wassalam.
