'''Abadism''' ([[Majatran language|Majatran]]: العبدية, ''al-ʿabadiyyah'') from العباد الملائك, ''al-ʿibādu-l-malāʾiki‎'' (literally "''Servants of the Holy Spirits''", more commenly called ''ʿibād'') is the dominant faith in [[Kafuristan]] and the second largest sect of [[Ahmadism]], after [[Israism]]. There are also communities of Abadi in other nations on [[Terra]]. The main distinguishing feature of Abadism is its belief that the Holy Spirits were created from the Light of God, which itself is uncreated and co-eternal with God. Other Ahmadi denominations sometimes consider that to be a form of ''shirk'' (polytheism) and condemn Abadis for their perceived worship of the Holy Spirits. Abadism is also distinguished from Israism in its views on the Caliphate; whereas Israis believe that any member of Prophet [[Ahmad]]'s Kamék Clan or any descendant of the Prophet's Companions, and in some minority views even any pious Ahmadi can become a Caliph if elected by the consensus of Ahmadis expressed in a Kurultai, Abadism restricts succession to the Caliphate to direct or indirect descendants of the Prophet (known as ''Afnan'', literally "branches"), although the Caliph does have to be confirmed by a Kurultai. From this political distinction Abadism in time developed a distinct theology on the role of the Caliph, where he is seen as not only the secular leader of the Ahmadi community but also as the divinely appointed successor to the Prophet and the authorized interpreter of scripture.
