Islamic Denominations (Historical Religions)

In 1 collection by Tomatekh
Tomatekh's Historical Religion Mods
17 items
This mod works either stand-alone or as an add-on to either my Historical Religions mod or the Historical Religions Edit.

It splits Islam into three denominations:


The mod updates the religious preference for Muslim civs and includes new religion icons and full civlopedia entries.


- Requires either the Gods and Kings or the Brave New World expansions.
- Updates to the mod will most likely break saved games. Do not update unless you are ready to start a new game.


Denomination Packs:
These mods work either stand-alone or as an add-on to my Historical Religions mods:
- Christian Denominations
-- Medieval Heresies
-- Protestant Denominations
-- Christianity Merge
- Islamic Denominations
- Hindu Denominations
- Buddhist Denominations
- Mesopotamian Denominations
- Greco-Roman Denominations
- Egyptian Denominations

All of my denomination packs are also collected in the Historical Religions Complete (BNW & GK) mod. Also check out my Great Prophet Historical Names mod.

Ra Horakhti,

No, only the late mutazlites were incorporated into sunnism.

Mutazilism was NEVER sunni, on the contrary, they regarded sunnism as heretic.

Ok these are the major islamic sects in history together with a description of their tendency in thought:

1 Sunnism split into:

Hanafism (legalistic pragmatic)
Shafiism (legalistic dogmatic)
Malikism (legalistic traditionalist)
Hanbalism (legalistic scripturalist)

2 Shiism split into:

Ja'farism (legalistic pragmatic)
Ismailism (messianic idealistic)
Alevitism (sectarian idealistic)

3 Mutazilism (rationalistic)

4 Kharijism (rationalist anarchistic)

5 Ibadism (rationalist traditionalistic)

6 Murji'ism (pragmatic rationalistic)

I have never tested it myself, but I have been told that my religion mods work with the CP.

Does this work with the Community Patch?

Faysal, Mu'tazila were Hanafi Sunnis.

where is the hanefi's??

The sword is much more representative of the Alawites, and not Shia in particular, maybe the al-quds would be a better symbol for shia?
Faysal May 17, 2015 @ 8:39am 
that is correct tomatekh :) but u should really really really increase the non-sunni non-shia extinct Mutazilite sect!

These rationalists, and NOT the sunni/shia, were responsible for islams golden age!

I purposefully did not include Sufism, as it’s not really a separate denomination but more an esoteric tract within the religion. There are Shia Sufis, Sunni Sufis, etc.

I believe you forgot Sufism!

It’s in the steam install files, not the mod. I suggest keeping a backup of the original file if you intend to edit it.
