The Alawis, also rendered as Alawites, are a syncretic sect of the Ghulat branch of Shia Islam, primarily centred in Syria. The eponymously-named Alawites revere Ali, considered the first Imam of the Twelver school. However, they are generally considered to be ghulat by most other sects of Shia Islam. The sect is believed to have been founded by Ibn Nusayr during the 9th century and fully established as a religion. For this reason, Alawites are sometimes called Nusayris, though the term has come to be used as a pejorative in the modern era. Another name, "Ansari", is believed to be a mistransliteration of "Nusayri".
