The largest branch of Islam. After the death of Muhammad, Muslims who accepted Abu Bakr (disciple) as the first Caliph became known as Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jama'ah or "the people of tradition and unification" in order to differentiate them from the Shia, who rejected Abu Bakr's authority in favor of Muhammad's cousin Ali as the next Caliph. (80% of all Muslims)
