Shia Islam
Shia (/ˈʃiːə/; Arabic: شيعة‎‎ Shīʿah, from Shīʻatu ʻAlī, followers of Ali), is a branch of Islam which holds that the Islamic prophet Muhammad designated Ali ibn Abi Talib as his successor (Caliph). Shia Islam primarily contrasts with Sunni Islam, whose adherents believe that Muhammad did not appoint a successor. Instead they consider Abu Bakr (who was appointed Caliph through a Shura, i.e. consensus) to be the correct Caliph.
