I was wondering what the difference is between Sunni and Shia Islam. I’ve heard Sunnis call Shiites apostates. Why?

Muslims are split into two main branches, the Sunnis and Shia. The split originates in a dispute soon after the death of the Prophet Muhammad over who should lead the Muslim community. The great majority of Muslims are Sunnis – estimates suggest the figure is somewhere between 85% and 90%.
