Or MUSYMAN, a title by which the Mahometans distinguish themselves; signifying in the Turkish language "true believer, or orthodox." There are two kinds of Musselmen very averse to each other; the one called Sonnites follow the interpretation of the Alcoran given by Omar; the Shiites are the followers of Ali. The subjects of the king of Persia are Shiites, and those of the grand seignior Sonnites.
