A Single Ummah

TAKEN FROM: Knowledge filled words from the Scholars, past and present regarding Muslim unity. Splitting up is not from the Religion, since the Religion commands us with unity and that we should be a single Jamaa’ah and a single Ummah upon the ’aqeedah (belief) of Tawheed (i.e. to single out Allaah alone for worship) and upon following the Messenger (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam).   [1]: THE OBLIGATION TO UNIFY THE RANKS: […]

Verses from Quran on being united

“And hold fast altogether to the rope of Allaah and do not be divided.” [Soorah Aali-’Imraan 3:101]“And do not be like those who split-up and differed after the clear evidences came to them. For them is a tremendous punishment.” [Soorah Aali-’Imraan 3:105]“And this is My Straight Path, so follow it and do not follow other paths that will separate you from His Path.

Sectarianism & Misplaced Loyalty

“O Mankind! Indeed we created you from a man and a woman and made you into tribes and nations so that you may know one another. Indeed the most noble of you with Allaah are those that have the most taqwaa (piety)” [Sooratul Hujuraat 49:13] [2] Misplaced Loyalty [al-Istiqaamah] Source: TROID Publications THE BASIS OF RIGHT GUIDANCE Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (d.728H) – rahimahullaah – said: “The Religion of the Muslims is built upon following the Book of Allaah, the Sunnah of His Prophet and that which the Ummah has agreed upon. So these are the three infallible usool (fundamentals). So whatever the Ummah differs in, then it is referred back to Allaah and His Messenger. Thus, it is not for anyone to set up a person for the Ummah, and to call to his way and form walaa’ (love, loyalty and allegiance) and ‘adaa (enmity and hatred) based upon that, except for the Prophet . Nor is any speech set up for them based upon which they form walaa’ and ‘adaa except for the Speech of Allaah, and that of His Messenger , and that which the Ummah has agreed upon. Rather, this is that practice of the people of innovation, who set up a person or a saying, with which they cause splits in the Ummah; forming walaa‘ and ‘adaa based upon that saying or ascription.” [1] […]
