Sunni Sect

The Sunnis refrain from giving exalted status to any person other than the prophets. There is also the belief that leader or imam should be selected with consensus. The sect is considered to be more flexible in allowing any person to serve as a prayer leader or preacher. Within the Sunni sect, there are four schools of jurisprudence. These include Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi and Hanbali schools of thought. [34]
