Big changes[edit]

I made this template look more like the Islam one, almost exactly like it, however it is a bit smaller. Any information that was specific to Twelverism was taken out, and more information that applied to all Shi'ah groups was added. This correlates with the big changes on the Twelvers template front, and the Ismailis template front.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Enzuru (talkcontribs) 20:21, April 21, 2007 (UTC).

Hadith of the two weighty things[edit]

The "History" section contains two different links to the same article. (talk) 04:58, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Some things here are not universal[edit]

I noticed that some things listed on this template are not universally accepted by all Shi'a; to be more specific, it seems that in some ways the majority view (Twelver) is being represented as the only view. Ismah isn't accepted by Zaidis and The Occultation isn't accepted by Zaidis and some Ismailis. With that in mind, I think those ought not be linked to on this template but rather on the templates for the Twelver and (in the case of Occultation) Ismaili branches.

I'm going to go ahead and remove things that are only specific to certain branches of Shia then, and not general to all of them, such as those mentioned above. MezzoMezzo (talk) 03:45, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
ِDear @MezzoMezzo:, Please ping me or @Mhhossein: whenever you have a question or want a contribution from a Twelver.--Seyyed(t-c) 06:20, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
Hey @MezzoMezzo: and @Sa.vakilian: How about adding the branches in a parenthesis, such as Ismah (Twelver)? This way the readers will get to know which one is specific to each branch. Mhhossein (talk) 10:41, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
There is another template which dedicates to Twelver. I think your suggestion may confuse the reader.--Seyyed(t-c) 13:09, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
