Understanding Shia and Sunni Muslims

With the swirling debate concerning Iraq, there is often mention of the Shia and Sunni Muslims. Of course, it is easy for the media to portray these groups are monolothic groups but it is much more nuanced than that. I received an email from IslamiCity that gives a brief history of Shia and Sunni Muslims and how they have alot more in common than most are led to believe. Hopefully, this will help nuance our understanding of what is happening in the region.

Stay up fam,
