Sunni Islam is the largest denomination of Islam, representing almost 90% of the global Muslim population, but also in Turkey (75-80% of the population).

To them, Muhammad's first Caliph was his father-in-law Abu Bakr. Sunnis have no formal clergy. Anyone with the knowledge and intelligence can become an Islamic scholar.
