Salamun Alaikum! Hope you are doing well. We are sorry for replying you late.
We the followers of Ahlulbait believe Justice (Adalat) and Imamat among the five roots of our belief.
So, If anyone who does not believe in these two beliefs would not be considered Shia. If such person fulfils other requirement of fundamental beliefs in God, Prophet Muhhamd and the Day of Judgement is considered a Muslim. Although we think that such Muslim is not on the right path guided by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the True Imams (peace be upon them all..
In a Sahih Hadith, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) says: There will be twelve successors of me from my family.
