Title: Druze And 12er Shia Beliefs
Post by: Rationalist on November 14, 2020, 04:54:01 PM
For some reason I was thinking about the Druze people, and I decided to look them up. Although these guys were Ismailis first they have something in common with the 12ers. Here are their belief about Prophethood:

Prophethood
Recognition of prophets in the Druze religion is divided into three sort-of subcategories, the prophet themselves (natiq), their disciples (asas), and witnesses to their message (hujjah). For example, Muhammad is considered a natiq, Ali is considered an asas, but both are considered prophets. Each major prophet had seven minor prophets, and each minor prophet had twelve disciples.
