Druzism is a monotheistic religion incorporating several elements from Abrahamic religions, Gnosticism, Neoplatonism, Pythagoreanism, and other philosophies. The Druze call themselves Ahl al-Tawhid "the People of Monotheism" or al-Muwaḥḥidūn "the Unitarians". Druzism is an offshoot of Ismailism, a branch of Shia Islam. Druze follow the seven pillars of Ismailism.
The Druze religion originated in the Ismaili sect of Shia Islam, but has many features of gnosticism and neoplatonism in addition to the Abrahamic religions. Defining features in game:
- Muslim rulers can - and are expected to have - multiple wives.
- Mosque Holdings can be held by anyone without penalty.
- Muslim dynasties grow decadent unless the men have enough land and win wars.
Druzism is a heresy of Shia Islam.
