al-Ithnaa ‘Ashariyyah

They are the twelve sects from amongst the Raafidhah who claim the infallibility of their twelve imaams, who are: ‘Alee ibn Abee Taalib, al-Hasan ibn ‘Alee, al-Husayn ibn ‘Alee, Faatimah bint Muhammad, Ja’far as-Saadiq, ‘Alee ar-Ridhaa, al-Hasan al-‘Askaree, Ahmad al-Baaqir, Moosaa al-Kaathim, Muhammad al-Jawaad, as-Sajaad.

And this sect claims that these twelve imaams have special qualities which no-one else has, such as their claim that they know about the unseen, and they know when they are to die, and they know that which has happened and that which shall happen – all of this is according to the most authentic of their books, namely: “al-Kaafee fil-Usool” of al-Kaleenee.
