Shia branches and denominations

Recommended Posts


I'd like to know how many branches or denominations there are in shia islam and if there's any chart about how many people belong to cartain branches, for example, from the whole shia comunity around 70% belong to jafri and 20% to zaidiyyah. If someone knows to which branch most of shia muslims belong to I'd appreciate if could tell me no matter if there's no official chart.

thank you

The Shia Islam page at wikipedia has a small chart that is hard to see.


The original file in pdf format is called "shia islam tree" here:
