Sunnites

Sunnites, the orthodox Mohammedans, a name given to them because they accept the Sunna, i.e. traditional teaching of the Prophet, as of the same authority as the Korân, in the matter of both faith and morals, agreeably to a fundamental article of Mohammedanism, that not only the rule of life, but the interpretation of it, is of divine dictation.
