Ghulat
Ghulāt (Arabic: غلاة‎, lit. 'exaggerators', singular ghālī)[1] is a term used in the theology of Shia Islam
Shia Islam
to describe some minority Muslim groups who either ascribe divine characteristics to figures of Islamic history (usually a member of the Ahl al-Bayt) or hold beliefs deemed deviant by mainstream Shi'i theology. In later periods, this term was used to describe any Shi'i group not accepted by the Zaydis, orthodox Twelvers, and sometimes the Isma'ilis.[2] The usage derives from the idea that the importance or the veneration of such a religious figure has been "exaggerated".Contents1 History 2 See also 3 References 4 Further readingHistory[edit] Traditionally, the first of the ghulāt was Abdullah ibn Saba', who may have denied that Ali
Ali
had died and predicting his return (rajʿa), which was considered one form of ghuluww. Some beliefs originally considered deviant have become mainstream

Batin (Islam)
Bāṭin (Arabic: باطن‎) literally means "inner", "inward", "hidden", etc. The Quran, for instance, has a hidden meaning in contrast to its exterior or apparent meaning, the Zahir. Sufis believe that every individual has a batin in the world of souls. It is the inward self of the individual; when cleansed with the light of one's spiritual guide, it elevates a person spiritually.[1][2] This notion is connected to Allah's attribute of the Hidden One, who cannot be seen but exists in every realm. Muslim groups believe that batin[3] can be fully understood only by a figure with esoteric knowledge
