ISLAM IN THE UNITED STATES

One of the earliest accounts of Islam’s possible presence in North America dates to 1528, when a Moroccan slave, called Estevanico, was shipwrecked near present-day Galveston, Texas.  He and four survivors subsequently  traveled through much of the American southwest and the Mexican interior before reaching Mexico City.

two major denominations

and why they disagree

Sunnis believe that Abu Bakr, the father of Muhammad’s wife, was Muhammad’s rightful successor and that the method of choosing or electing leaders endorsed by the Qur’an, is the consensus of the Muslim community.

Shi’as believe that Muhammad divinely ordained his cousins and son-in-law, Ali Ibn Abi Talib, in accordance with the command of Allah, to be the next Caliph, making Ali and his direct descendants Muhammad’s successors.
