Our Allah is one,Our Prophet is one,Our Quran is one,Our Kalma is one….Why are we not one….No Wahhabi,No Deobandi,No Sufi,No Barelvi,No 24 number…..Fear Allah….Fear Allah….Fear Allah….Do not divide…Be United and one…Do not call names…..Only Islam and Muslim…Our only identity is MUSLIM…
Here is the solution for this major problem of sects in ISLAM.
Dear brothers and sisters, Islam calls for unity. All the unacceptable acts / practices (i.e. the diseases) harming the unity of Muslim society (i.e. the health of society) should be abandoned. All Muslims are brothers in Islam, as Allah says in following verse:
إِنَّمَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ إِخْوَةٌ فَأَصْلِحُوا بَيْنَ أَخَوَيْكُمْ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ
“The believers are nothing else than brothers (in Islam). So make reconciliation between your brothers, and fear Allah, that you may receive mercy.”
(Aayah No. 10, Surah Al-Hujurat, Chapter No. 49, Holy Qur’an).
Think… think again… and again… Are we fulfilling these requirements? Are we treating each others as brothers? It is sad as well as ironical to say that the relationship between real brothers are not being fulfilled justly, what to talk about fulfilling the responsibilities towards brothers in Islam.
Islam not only tells us to keep unity among ourselves but also to safeguard the unity. Every Muslim has to be an ambassador of unity and peace. Whenever any of us come across a situation where two Muslims (people or groups) have a dispute over a certain matter, it is responsibility of all Muslims to get together to solve it by all means and to make the two disputed parties (or people) united. Refer to following verse from Qur’an:
وَإِنْ طَائِفَتَانِ مِنْ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ اقْتَتَلُوا فَأَصْلِحُوا بَيْنَهُمَا فَإِنْ بَغَتْ إِحْدَاهُمَا عَلَى الأُخْرَى فَقَاتِلُوا الَّتِي تَبْغِي حَتَّى تَفِيءَ إِلَى أَمْرِ اللَّهِ فَإِنْ فَاءَتْ فَأَصْلِحُوا بَيْنَهُمَا بِالْعَدْلِ وَأَقْسِطُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُقْسِطِينَ
“And if two parties or groups among the believers fall to fighting, then make peace between them both. But if one of them outrages against the other, then fight you (all) against the one that which outrages till it complies with Command of Allah. Then if it complies, make reconciliation between them justly, and be equitable. Verily, Allah loves those who are equitable.”
(Aayah No. 9, Surah Al-Hujurat, Chapter No. 49, Holy Qur’an).
I shall end my discussion with a request to all of us that we should make sure that all the diseases (as discussed in this article as well as any thing else or any individual or any group etc.) that are dangerous for the health of Muslim society (i.e. its unity), need to be eradicated. Whoever tries to harm the unity of Muslims should be dealt with severely:
It was narrated that Ziyad bin Ilaqah said: I heard Arfajah say: I heard Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) say, “There will beFitnah and innovations. Whoever wants to divide thisUmmah when it is united, strike him with sword, no matter who he is.”
(Hadith No. 4796 (1852), Book of Leadership, Sahih Muslim, Vol. 5).
And Allah knows best.
May Allah forgive me if I am wrong and guide us to the right path…Ameen.
سُبْحَانَ رَبِّكَ رَبِّ الْعِزَّةِ عَمَّا يَصِفُون َ ; وَسَلامٌ عَلَى الْمُرْسَلِينَ ; وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ.
