Faḍaʾil al-Shīʿa (lit. The Virtues of the Shīʿa) is a short compilation penned by the distinguished Shi'a scholar al-Shaykh al-Saduq. The book presents a collection of 45 selected hadiths from the Imams, articulating the standing of the Shīʿa community and affirming their position as the only followers who faithfully adhere to the Prophet's path of truth. These chosen sayings underscore the unique role of the Shīʿa in perpetuating the Prophet's teachings and serve as a guide for moral conduct and understanding.
