Al-Bāb al-ḥādī ʿashar (Arabic: الباب الحادي عشر), literally meaning, "The Eleventh Chapter", is in fact the eleventh chapter of Minhaj al-salih fi mukhtasar al-misbah. It is one of the most famous Shi'a theological works, and was written by al-'Allama al-Hilli (d. 726/1325).


Main article: al-'Allama al-Hilli

Al-'Allama al-Hilli was a Shi'a scholar of the 8th/14th century. His debates and writings persuaded Oljeitu (Sultan Muhammad Khudabanda) to convert to Shi'a Islam, which in turn led to the spread of Shi'a beliefs in Iran. Al-Allamah al-Hilli has many works on jurisprudence, principles of jurisprudence, theology, philosophy, logics, supplications and other fields of Islamic studies. Because of his vast knowledge, he was the first person to be entitled as Ayatollah.
