Evaluate why the division in Islam first occurred and how it continues to impact Muslims.

The Shia Muslims believe that following the Prophet Muhammad's death, leadership should have passed directly to his cousin/son-in-law, Ali bin Abu Talib. The Sunni Muslims believed Mohammed's right hand man Abu Bakr, should be the new leader. This cause a split in Islam which lasts to this day.
