Shabakism is the name given to the beliefs and practices of the Shabak people in the disputed territories of northern Iraq. Most Shabaks regard themselves as Shia, but some identify as Sunnis.WEB,weblink Iraq: The minorities of Nineveh, Mina, al-Lami, 21 July 2014, www.bbc.com, {{clarification needed|date=March 2019}}{{better source|date=March 2019}} Despite this, their actual faith and rituals differ from Islam, and have characteristics that make them distinct from neighboring Muslim populations. Nevertheless, the Shabak people also go on pilgrimages to Shia holy cities such as Najaf and Karbala, and follow many Shiite teachings.BOOK, Imranali Panjwani, The Shi'a of Samarra: The Heritage and Politics of a Community in Iraq, 2012, 167,weblink 24 March 2019, The organization of Shabakism appears to be much like that of a Sufi order: adult laymen (murids) are bound to spiritual guides (pîrs or murshids) who are knowledgeable in matters of religious doctrine and ritual. There are several ranks of such pîrs; at the top stands the Baba, or supreme head of the order. Theoretically individuals can choose their own pîr, but in practice the pir families often become associated with lay families over several generations.WEB,weblink The Shabak and the Kakai: Dynamics of Ethnicity in Iraqi Kurdistan, Kurdish Academy, 24 March 2019, Shabakism combines elements of Sufism with the uniquely Shabak interpretation of "divine reality." According to Shabaks, this divine reality supersedes the literal, or Shar'ia, interpretation of the Quran. Shabaks comprehend divine reality through the mediation of the "Pir" or spiritual guide, who also performs Shabak rituals.A. Vinogradov, Ethnicity, Cultural Discontinuity and Power Brokers in Northern Iraq: The Case of the Shabak, American Ethnologist, pp. 214-215, American Anthropological Association, 1974 The structure of these mediatory relationships closely resembles that of the Yarsan.WEB,weblink The Shabak and the Kakais, Dr. Michiel Leezenberg, 2 November 2014, bot: unknown,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20160412221746weblink">weblink 12 April 2016, The primary Shabak religious text is the Buyruk or Kitab al-Managib (Book of Exemplary Acts) and is written in Turkoman. Shabaks also consider the poetry of Ismail I to be revealed by God, and they recite Ismail's poetry during religious meetings.
