Out of curiosity...

The shayki sect who predicted the bab was siyyid Kazim I'm guessing these were the most knowledgeable of the Muslims .. Did these guys pray 5x a day? How did there beliefs differ to modern Islam ? I'm curious if anyone has the answers

the two main branches were and are Shia and Sunni. all others are divisions in one of these two. Then Abdul Baha clearly says that what Shias think about Ghadir Khom Day (the day in which Islam turned into the two major divisions) is correct, and that Imam Ali had been the true Calif after MOhammad and not the three Sunni Califs.

and aside from Quran, all the branches take their knowledge from their Hadiht books. Hadith books are the collections of sayings of prophet + stories on HIs life and manners. each branch has its special Hadith book.
