This can only be the Sunni’s because all other groups broke away from the Sunni mainstream. When I mean Sunni I mean the Hanafis, Shafi’s, Malikis and Hanbali’s. These are the Sunnis and those who are not part of this group I do not consider as part of mainstream Sunni Islam. They also have to adhere to one of the following groups of Islamic belief which are Maturidi’s or Ashari’s. This is Ahl Al-Sunnah wa Jammah and others that are excluded are Shia, Khawarij, Mutazilities and Wahabis etc.
