Just for context, I did take a look at this question: What defines a sect in Islam?.

However, I am asking on this: What makes a sect in Islam a sect?

For example, could anyone say, "I think we should do this instead of what the Sunni do" then that person creates a sect. Or is it as simple as that, or more in depth like sects have to be based on something?

  • You are welcome! Better you do it than I do it and it comes out it was a misunderstanding. – Medi1Saif Nov 17 '20 at 14:05
