shia's is a devil

How is Zoroastrianism linked more to Shia Islam

The concept of a heaven (persian: pardis), hell, the devil, and a messiah are all adapted from Zoroastrianism. In Sunni Islam, there is no concept of a messiah, while in shi'a Islam, the 12th imam hid to escape/avoid persecution and we shi'a believe that he will return as a messiah.

This is another way that shiism is closer to Christianity than Sunni Islam is, because Christians believe in the return of Jesus.
