    Let me qualify my statement that the Ismailis are historically attested to before we twelvers.
    1) they stop at Ismail when they broke off and we know from historical records they were more numerous than twelver shia until the tewlth century.
    2)There were no twelvers at the time becaue all 12 Aimmah (as) had not arrived yet.
    3)Ghulwu tendencies were rife in the shia communities and we still have them. Tanasukh (reincarnation) and Tashbih were also present. In fact many narrators of shia hadith adhered to these beliefs but they still make it into al-kafi.

    let me try to contact the Bektashi community and ask them where they stand. If I get a reply I will share it with you all.

    As Salam Alaykum:
    Ismailis are an older group of Shia, historically speaking, than we ithna asherah shia. Bektashis believe in the 12 Aimmah (as) so I do not see how they cannot be classified as shia , though indeed they are an offshoot. How many shia do you know that do not practice Islam the way it should be? Are they now not "real" shia?

    As Salam Alaykum:
    People who practice tassawuf are muslim. Many sunnis do not classify the shia as muslims. So to claim a group is not muslim is going to the extreme. We must not be quick to say such and such is not a muslim.

    As Salam Alaykum:
    I am a balkan shia muslim and I am embarresed by those who say that they do not have to pray etc. . . I am glad to see Islamic sentiment is strong in Macedonia amongst Albanians. I respect the Bektashi and sufis since they, Shia in belief, spread Islam in the Balkans until the Sunnis took power because of the Ottoman policy. In that article one has just seen two extremes. True shia-sufis do not neglect the "rituals" of Islam. Salat is a blessing and it is what Rasulullah (Salli Allahu alayhi wa Alihi wa salam) brought us from the Night Journey. I canot believe that they were complaining that an Egyptian woman was teaching Arabic! What they should fear is the complete amoral society developing in these regions thanks to a certain country's amoral culture.
    It was embarrasing to read that article. Calling the hijab "oppressive clothing!" Everyone is walking around half naked, but that is okay?

    As Salam Alaykum:
    Think about what you just said. You intimate that you do not have to do "rituals" that the Aimmah (Alayhim as salam) gave their lives to keep alive. ONe of Imam Hussain's (alayhi as salam) last remarks were that he felt sad that he would no longer be able to pray Salat ul Layl.

    you have no real knowledge of sanatana dharma do you? I respect anyone who loves Imam Hussein (as). I consider such a person more of a sister than one who calls me kafir and blows up my masjids (but he/she prays towards the qiblah).
