The Halawites (Halawīyyah, Majatran: هلوية), also known as the Halawis are a small sect of Ahmadism who follow Hala bint Ahmed ad-Deltari (Majatran: هالة بنت أحمد الديلتاري‎), a 16th century Turjak saint from Deltaria who became famous when she was executed for heresy after ecstatically proclaiming Anal-Haq ("I am the Truth"), which her contemporaries interpreted as an affirmation of divinity. The Halawites originated in the area of southern Deltaria where the interaction between Hosianism and Abadism resulted in the emergence of a small sect with syncretic features.

Hala

Hala al-Deltari, founder of Halawism

The Halawites were persecuted by both Hosians and Ahmadi followers due to their heretical nature. Few Ahmadis claim to be Halawites, the largest of these reside in the northern portion of Jakania, southern Deltaria and the Siphinans of Kalopia-Wantuni.
