He tried to introduce what are considered as general issues of Shiite beliefs by dividing Shiite intellectual and doctrinal issues into ten subjects: ways to reach knowledge of Islam, Tawhid (monotheism) and its levels, the attributes of God, divine justice, the reasons for the necessity of the of the prophets’ prophethood, special prophecy, Imamate and caliphate, the world after death, faith and disbelief, heresy, Taqiya (hiding the real belief) and Recourse, and finally, hadith, ijtihad and Emulation.

In the end, he pointed out the differences in the field of Shiite and Sunni jurisprudential issues in nine principles: the quality of Wuzu (ablution), Sujud (prostration) on the ground, performing each of prayers without break between them, temporary marriage, Takatof (clasping the hands while praying), Taraweeh prayer, the obligation of Khums, Islamic civilization and unity.
