After asking a similar question on Mi Yodeya and Christianity.SE, I was curious about the equivalent phenomenon in Islam.

Is there a concise graph, chart, or other resource that can explain the key differences and similarities between the beliefs of the major sects?

  • If I'm understanding your question correctly, you basically want this chart (link) except with actual explanations on the fundamental reasons each branch exists, rather than an actual breakdown on all the different practices etc that eventually grew out of each over the centuries since they branched? – goldPseudo Aug 10 '19 at 3:21
  • @goldPseudo I actually wanted the latter in something like a chart form (see the Mi Yodeya question). But if that's just not possible for one reason or another, then the fundamental reasons each branch exists will suffice. – isakbob Aug 10 '19 at 3:28
