Ash'arism is one of the main branches of Sunnism and was founded by Abu Hasan al-Ash'ari around the 9th-10th century.[4] Ash'arism was formed as a middle ground between the branches of Atharism and Maturdism.[1] Most Asharis follow the Shafi madhab of Sunnism but there is also a Maliki minority.[5] Asharis are generally considered part of Ahl Sunnah.[6][7]
