Kharajites (in Arabic khawārij) : derives from the Arabic root ‘kharajah’ (means ‘to go out’, ‘to secede’). A revolutionary, and egalitarian group that revolted against the Caliph ‘Uthmān Ibn ‘Affān and later against ‘Alī Ibn Alī Ṭālib. In the battle of Siffīn, opposing ‘Alī Ibn Alī Ṭālib and Mu‘āwiyah Ibn Abī Ṣufyā they refused any form of arbitration saying that the judgment should be left only to God.
