    Today the majority of Kurds are officially Muslim, belonging to the Shafi school of Sunni Islam. Mystical practices and participation in Sufi orders are also widespread among Kurds. There is also a minority of Kurds that are Shia Muslims, primarily living in the Ilam and Kermanshah provinces of Iran, Central Iraq (Fayli Kurds). The Alevis are another religious minority among the Kurds, mainly found in Turkey.

    Muslim.

    Just like there are many "denominations" in the Christian church, so there are many such groups in Islam. Sunni, Shia, Suffi, Kurdish, just to name four of them.

    These differences are as much ethnic and tribal as anything else. The Five Pillars of Islam are the same for all the groups.

    Many Muslims, but also Christians (Catholics, Church of the East, Syrian Orthodox) and Muslim "heretics" (such as Yazidis).

    Edit: forgot, there are also Kurdish Jews.

    Mostly Sunni Muslims, but there are some Baha'is as well.
