Shia, the second largest Muslim denomination, is derived from the term which translates to "followers of Ali." Based on the teachings of the Qur'an and the message of the last prophet of Islam, Muhammad, Shias believe that only Allah has the right to choose someone to keep safe Islam, Shariah, and the Qur'an. Therefore, they believe that prophets and imams cannot be elected by regular Muslims.
