    Peace, family,

    If there are any Muslims out there, and I am not Muslim, just for the record, I wanted to point out Surah 30:31-32 and how those ayats show that there are no sects in (True) Islam.

    Surah 30:31-32 (Maulana Muhammad Ali translation:)

    "(31)...and keep your duty to Him, and keep up prayer and be not of the polytheists, (32)Of those who split up their religion and become parties; every sect rejoicing in that which is with it."

    These ayats plainly tell us my Brothers & Sisters that in (True) Islam sectarianism is polytheistic. That means that there are no sects in True Islam.

    Peace.
    Bro. Ecks

    Sunni v. Shia

    There has been a split since the death of the prophet between the followers of Ali (Shia) and the followers of Abu Bakr(Sunni). Then, there are the Sufis.

    Sectarian violence between rival Muslim factions tore apart Somalia and here is some background on the situation in Syria.

    War-torn Syria is a humanitarian disaster. Bashar al-Assad, an Alawite (considered an offshoot of Shia-ism) faced opposition from a predominantly Sunni rebel movement. Shia shrines, including that of Hazrat Sayyida Zainab, daughter of Hazrat Ali, were allegedly purposively targeted. Hezbollah, a radical Shia group based in Lebanon, have been drawn into the conflict as well, further complicating an already volatile situation and making this conflict more of a Shia-Sunni skirmish rather than the pro-democratic rebellion that it started off as.
