Both Sunni and Shia Muslims share the most fundamental Islamic beliefs and articles of faith. The differences between these two main sub-groups within Islam initially stemmed not from spiritual differences, but political ones.

The division between Shia and Sunni dates back to the death of the Prophet Muhammad, and the question of who was to take over the leadership of the Muslim nation.

This is what was done, and the Prophet Muhammad's close friend and advisor, Abu Bakr, became the first Caliph of the Islamic nation.

There is no such major difference. we all follow the five principles of islam.
when our prophet (p,b.u,h) left to heavenly abode , a section of people said with this prophet hood is over as
our prophet (p,b.u,h) did not name any one. a few others said since hazrat ali ( r.a ) is a relative of prophet (p,b.u,h) - cousin and also son in law and as well first man to embrace islam , they felt prophethood must have continued to him
thats the only difference
or else salah , holy quran , kalima , zakath , and fastings are all same
