The divide between Sunni vs Shia is the largest and beloved in the history of Islam.
Members of the two sects have co-existed for ages and share many key beliefs and practices. But they differ in opinion, ritual, law, faith and religious organization. Their officers also often seem to be in competition. From Lebanon and Syria to Iraq and Pakistan, many modern battles have emphasized the limited divide, tearing neighborhoods apart.
Who are the Sunnis?
The great preponderance of the world’s more than 1.5 billion Muslims are Sunnis – assessments suggest the figure is around between 85% and 90%. In the Middle South, Sunnis make up 90% or more of the peoples of Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

The name “Sunni” is obtained from the phrase “Ahl al-Sunnah”, or “People of the Law”. The tradition, in this instance, refers to methods based on what the Prophet Muhammad said, did, agreed to or convicted.
Shia is also guided by the wisdom of Muhammad’s (SAW) descendants through his son-in-law and cousin, Ali<a.s>. Sunni life is guided by four schools of legal thought, each of which attempts to develop practical importance of the Sunnah.
