ash-shaikh abul faraj [i.e. ibnul jawzi], rahimahullah, said:

“and if it is said, ‘ are these sects [i.e. the 72 sects in hell] known?’ the answer is: we know the separation and the origin of the sects, and every party from the sects divided into yet more sects. and we have not been able to be aquainted with the names of [all] these sects and their madhaahib, but it has become clear to us that the foundation of these groups are the harooriyyah [a branch of the khawaarij], and the qadariyyah, and the jahmiyyah, and the murji’ah, and the raafidah, and the jabariyyah. and some of the people of knowledge said, ‘the origin of the [72] deviant sects are these six sects, and each one divided within itself into 12 sects, so it became 72 separate sects.'”
