Like Christianity, Islam is home to a spectrum of sects espousing different beliefs and practices. And just as Christianity can be divided into two large groups - Catholic and Protestant - from which other subsects have emerged, so too with Islam: Shia and Sunni.
A very useful article to impress and hopefully enlighten the ignorant who see Islam as a homogeneous and dangerous mass.
