  5. A final savior, called the Mahdi is currently alive, and more than 1000 years old
  6. Islam and all its religious rituals such as the regular prayers and the prescribe charity, in its present form, were introduced to the world by the Prophet Mohammed, and not by all the prophets before him

  18. A narration narrated by an ordinary person and described to the Prophet, can override an injunction from the holy Quran
