Discovering Shi’i Islam studies the origins of Shia Islam and its sources, i.e. the Quran, the Sunnah, the reason and consensus. It also studies fundamental doctrines and main practices of Islam. It ends with a brief account of the latest statistics about present Muslim population of the world along with a breakdown of religious affiliations of some countries with a long history of Shia presence therein.
