Sunni vs. Shia:  Sunni vs. Shia Deconstructing Islam for the Classroom What Do We Know about Sunni and Shia Islam?:  What Do We Know about Sunni and Shia Islam? Images of Sunni and Shia Violence:  Images of Sunni and Shia Violence Islam-The Big Picture:  Islam-The Big Picture The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)receives the revelation of the Qu’ran in 610 612 Prophet Muhammad (phuh)begins preaching The Qu’ran holds 114 chapters or “surahs”. It took 21 years for the Qu’ran to be fully revealed. The Qu’ran’s surahs are not ordered chronologically but according to length- longest to shortest. Five Pillars of Islam:  Five Pillars of Islam Shahada- the Declaration of Faith. One becomes a Muslim by saying the following with conviction and belief: “La ilaha illa Allah, Muhammadur rasoolu Allah.” “There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger.” Salat- Prayer. Muslims are to pray five times a day in the direction of the Kaabah in Mecca. Prayers are performed at dawn, noon, mid-afternoon, sunset, and night. Five Pillars of Islam :  Five Pillars of Islam Zakat- Alms-giving to benefit the poor and needy, required every year (normally at the end of Ramadam). 2.5% of wealth, volunteer time can count towards this. Sawm- Fasting. For the entire month of Ramadan (on the lunar calendar) believers abstain from food, drink and impure thought and deeds during the daylight hours. The month commemorates the first revelation of the Qu’ran and is seen as spiritually purifying. The end of Ramadan is a holiday, Eid al-Fitr Feast of Breaking the Fast. Five Pillars of Islam:  Five Pillars of Islam Hajj- The Pilgramage to Mecca during the month of Dhu al-Hijjah. If able every Muslim is expected to make the Hajj at least once in their lifetime, if unable many sponsor someone to go in their place. It is common for a village to pull together their money to pay the way for one individual to go on behalf of all. The end of Dhu al-Hijjah is another holiday, Eid al-Aida, Feast of the Sacrifice. Additional Component:  Additional Component Jihad- Important concept in both Sunni and Shia Islam, signifies a struggle. Two types, the struggle within (which the Qu’ran deals mainly with), and the struggle (wars of religion) without. Shia consider the inner Jihad an essential element of the faith. Jihad is often misused in terminology and in its purpose. Terrorist group Al-Qaida is a Sunni organization. Definitions:  Definitions PBUH- Stands for “Peace Be Upon Him” and is commonly said or written after using the Prophet Muhammad’s name by Muslims. Qu’ran- the Holy book of the Islamic faith, the word means “recitation”. Many believers, as well as Muhammad himself, were illiterate and learned all teachings orally. Surah- a chapter within the Qu’ran Islam- means “surrender” Muslim- means “one who surrenders” Ummah- the religious community Ahl al-Kitab- “People of the Book”, refers to Jews and Christians or ‘people of an earlier revelation’ The Sunni-Shia Split -It’s All About Family-:  The Sunni-Shia Split -It’s All About Family- Khadija First Wife Prophet Muhammad Fatima Muhammad and Khadija are credited with having several daughters, although the parentage of them is questioned by scholars; they may have been adopted by Muhammad rather than sired by him. Uthman (the 3rd Caliph) was married to one of these daughters, Umm Kulthum bint Muhammad. However, historically these daughters have been marginalized, most likely because they did not bear any surviving children or survive their father. For the purposes of this presentation, all family relations have been simplified, thus we can state that Fatima was the only surviving daughter of Muhammad. The Sunni-Shia Split -It’s All About Family-:  The Sunni-Shia Split -It’s All About Family- Abu Talib Muhammad’s Uncle Khadija (First Wife) Prophet Muhammad Abu Bakr Friend and Early Convert Aisha Fatima Ali Muhammad’s Cousin The Sunni-Shia Split -It’s All About Family-:  The Sunni-Shia Split -It’s All About Family- Fatima Ali 1st Imam Hassan 2nd Imam Hussein 3rd Imam Zaynab Umm Al-Kaltum Ali Zain Al-Abideen 4th Imam All Other Imams Descend from this Line. Muhammad’s Succession :  Muhammad’s Succession 632- Muhammad dies, leaving no confirmed successor* Disagreement among clans on who will lead the faith- bloodline (Ali) or the one most capable The Ummah (the Islamic community) elects Muhammad’s father-in-law (through his wife Aisha) Abu Bakr to lead the faith. He becomes the first Caliph - the leader of the Ummah. The Rashidun (632-661) The Rule of the Four Righted Guided Caliphs:  The Rashidun (632-661) The Rule of the Four Righted Guided Caliphs First Fitnah A 5 Year Civil War that lasted through Ali’s Reign:  First Fitnah A 5 Year Civil War that lasted through Ali’s Reign Angered over Ali’s reluctance to seek revenge in the death of Uthman, Aisha and her kinsman lead a revolt against Ali in the Battle of the Camel, which was lost by the rebels. Ali’s rule was not supported in Syria (where Uthman had appointed members of the Umayyad clan in power). Mu’awiya, governor of Syria, also wanted revenge for Uthman’s death. The Battle of Siffin (657) ended in arbitration between the two sides, which seriously hurt Ali politically. A Community Divided:  A Community Divided The Shia (followers of Ali) had been supporting Ali as the rightful head of the Islamic faith since the death of Muhammad. Now as Ali was being persecuted politically, the idea of being unfairly treated was being ingrained in the Shia psyche. As Ali was not actively seeking retribution for Uthman’s death, the Ummah was growing more and more discontent with the Caliph, garnering more support for challengers to the Caliphate like Mu’awiya. The Ummah was also horrified by the infighting between those that had once been a part of Muhammad’s inner circle, the community wanted a strong leader, not only for their protection but for the preservation of the faith. The true split in Islam came with the death of Ali. The Shia, who supported Ali went one way, and the Sunni, who followed Mu’awiya I (who declared himself Caliph and began the Umayyad dynasty) went the other. Second Fitnah:  Second Fitnah Mu’awiya I had managed to reconsolidate the Ummah, although in order to keep the community intact long-term, a new style of government closer to a monarchy than of an Arab Chieftain was needed. Mu’awiya arranged for his son Yezid to succeed him. Outraged at the choice of succession, Hussein (the son of Ali) and his followers demanded their rights to the Caliphate, which culminates in the Battle of Karbala in 680. The Battle of Karbala and its outcomes:  The Battle of Karbala and its outcomes Supporters of Hussein ibn Ali against Yazid I, the Umayyad caliph. Horribly outnumbered: under 100 vs. 4000+ Results- all men were massacred, women and childern in capitivity and made to march to Damascus, including Hussein’s sister Zaynab The Martyrdom of Hussein is celebrated by Shia, this day is called Ashura. Sunni and Shia Today:  Sunni and Shia Today Population statistics (Sunni 90%, Shia 10%) Cult of Martyrdom- the 12 Imams Concept of the Mahdi Areas of the World where conflict between the two exist. Iraq and Bahrain Sunni and Shia Today:  Sunni and Shia Today Concealing Faith for Self Protection Temporary Marriages Frequency of Prayer Holidays:  Holidays Sunni: Eid al-Adha, Eid al-Fitr Shia: Eid al-Adha, Eid al-Fitr, Ashura Ashura- a day of mourning. Men would beat their chests, and cut their bodies with knives. As most religious elite ban the cutting practice it still happens, they encourage the Shia to donate blood instead to commemorate the blood spilled at the battle of Karbala. Holy Places:  Holy Places Sunni: Mecca, Medina, Jerusalem Shia: Mecca, Medina, Jerusalem, Najaf (Site of Ali’s Tomb), Karbala Historical/Modern Day Comparisons:  Historical/Modern Day Comparisons With watching daily news reports of violence in the Middle East, it is difficult to put the situation into perspective. So let’s look to history that we may be more comfortable with. Huguenot wars (1562-1598) in France, St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre Northern Ireland and the IRA (1969-1998) Thank you for Coming!:  Thank you for Coming!
