Deploying the analytical method, this article addresses Mahmoud Ayoub’s theory of redemptive suffering in Islam. This theory was inspired by the Christian doctrine of redemptive suffering, wherein Jesus Christ’s passions are considered an atonement for the deliverance and salvation of humanity, liberating them from slavery to sins. Considering that Imam al-Husayn’s suffering and martyrdom in Karbala granted him the right to intercession, through which he can deliver people from the fires of hell, Ayoub presents a model for redemption and salvation based on Islamic doctrines and Imami Shiite theology. This article provides a critical examination of Ayoub’s model. Finally, by assessing the possibility and potentiality of the concept of redemption in Shiite theology, the article aims to pave another path for research on its full compatibility with the theological principles of Imami Shiism.
