        How many Shia are there in the world?
        Many people mistakenly think that Muslims are divided into two halves: Sunnis and Shi'it. In reality Shia are between 7.5% to 11%. All the rest (93.5%) are Sunnis . The word Shia includes all kinds of Shi'it Sects such as (Twelvers Imami Rafidi Shia, Isma'ili Shia, Alawi (Nusairi) Shia, Druze Shia, Zaidi Shia).

        The first statistic was all taken from the British Encyclopedia for the year 1997. However, we feel that it has some incorrect numbers for some countries such as Iran. Their number is compared to the total number of Muslims which is 1,482,596,925

        Country Name Total Population Percentage of Shia Number of Shia Sect
        Afghanistan 22,664,136 15% 3,399,620 Imami
        Azerbaijan 7,676,953 75% 5,757,715 Imami
        Bahrain 590,042 61.3% 361,696 Imami
        India 952,107,694 3% 28,563,231 Isma'ili, Imami
        Iran 66,094,264 93.4% 61,732,043 Imami
        Iraq 21,422,292 62.5% 13,388,933 Imami
        Kuwait 1,950,047 30% 585,014 Imami
        Lebanon 3,776,317 41% 1,548,290 Imami, Druze
        Oman 2,186,548 2% 43,731 Imami
        Pakistan 129,275,660 20% 25,855,132 Imami
        Qatar 547,761 5% 27,388 Imami
        Saudi Arabia 19,409,058 3.3% 640,499 Imami

            Sahabis of Imam Hussain were reciting Quran on 9th of Mohurram..the noise of tilawat awaken our 4th Imam, Imam Zainul Abedeen..He said to his dad Imam Hussain, what is this noise? Imam Hussain told him that that people are reciting Quran..Imam Zainul Abedeen said they are loud, and my mom, my aunts are near by and can hear them..

            this Imam of ours was having hard time with her aunts and mom hearing the tilawat of non mehrams..imagine how he would have felt taking them nangay sar through the bazar of shaam and koofa

            wanna tell me where were ur 90% muslims then?

                    .....munafiq sahabas .....

                    Sheraaz yaar, isn't it too general. I am sure shias don't call all sahabas munafiq because sahabas include people who have seen prophet (pbuh) i.e. Hazrat Ali (ra) and Hazrat Imam Hussain (ra) and so on.

                        Most of prophet's close companions including four caliphs were not present at that time and it was a time of chaos. People did resisted in favour of Hazrat Imam Hussain (ra) but it was a battle mainly between a government and people who stood against that government. Most people were not happy with the government like you know how the situation is like in our country people hate the governments but not all have the guts to stop them what they are doing.

                        To answer your question, those 90 % percent were not favouring the government but were rather supportive of Haque (i.e. Hazrat Imam Hussain) at that time.

                            salam

                            people

                            My fellow shias don't take this the wrong way but the purpose of this post was just an inquiry. No they are not trying to find any faults within us.

                            If you think the intention of the poster is to show how meagre the percentage of shias is amongst muslims than know this:

                            Quality is more important than quantity.

                            After all didn't Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him and his family) defeat the unbelievers with an army of 313 vs 2000 something.

                            As muslims we should not jump to conclusions about other muslim brothers and sisters.
                            We should find more reasons to unite us than to divide us.

                            I am pretty sure that tyhe original poster was making an honest inquiry about us.

                            wasalamun-alaikum-wa-rahmatullahi-wa-barakatu
