Ali was not a Shi’a nor was Umer a Sunni
**This is a re-posting of the six parts series of this topic in its entirety due to its importance”
My attempt here is not to discredit any side, Sunni or Shi’a rather I am trying to shed some light upon the historical origins of differences between Sunnis and Shi’as. It would only be fair to look at an important fact that is to have closer look at the relationship between the main characters of this dispute which I think both parties recognize. Certainly there are a lot of materials written about this dispute. Unfortunately it has exhausted a great amount of mental energies on both sides and in many cases has caused thousands of lives throughout history.
