The true followers of Deen have the right to be disunited with the wrong-doers and those who do not follow the Deen, whilst they (the wrong-doers) cannot claim any such right because it is their duty to unify with the righteous and the followers of Deen.

How can one be sure their way is the true way of deen?


I would not like to make a general statement on whether they are sinful or not, as we leave this to Allah Most High, neither will we be asked this question on the day of Qiyamah. May Allah bless the Ummah with unity as this is the greatest need of the time, and may He guide us all to the straight path (Ameen).

Muslims should strive their best to achieve their unity in all aspects. It is against the spirit of Islam to see Muslims divided. It is high time for Muslims to be united and forget about their differences. Unity if a unique feature of Islam.



Allah says: (O ye who believe! Be conscious of Allah as you aught to be conscious of Him, and die not except in a state of Islam. And hold fast, all together, by the Rope which Allah (stretches out for you), and be not divided among yourselves; and remember with gratitude Allah's favor on you; for ye were enemies and He joined your hearts in love, so that by His Grace, ye became brethren; and ye were on the brink of the Pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus does Allah make His Signs clear to you: that ye may be guided. Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong: they are the ones to attain felicity. Be not like those who are divided amongst themselves and fall into disputations after receiving Clear Signs: for them is a dreadful Penalty) (Aal `Imran 3: 102-105).

In another verse we read, (As for those who divide their religion and break up into sects, you have no part in them in the least: their affair is with Allah: He will in the end tell them the truth of all that they did) (Al-An`am: 159).


Also we read, (And obey Allah and His Messenger; and fall into no disputes, lest ye lose heart and your power depart; and be patient and persevering: for Allah is with those who patiently persevere) (Al-Anfal 8: 46).

Allah says in the Qur'an, (Indeed the Believers are brethren to each other)(Al-Hujurat 49: 10).


Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "You shall not enter Paradise until you have faith, and you shall not attain faith until you love each other. Should I tell you something that if you do, you shall love each other? Spread salam among you" (Reported by Muslim).

Our purpose as Muslims is moral and spiritual. Our purpose is to please Allah and to work for the advancement of His religion in this world. Our goal is to achieve ultimate success and salvation in the Hereafter. There is no better reason to be united than this. If we keep in our mind our purpose and goal, we can easily overcome our differences. We would not bicker on minor issues or take petty quarrels. We would not be jealous or hateful to each other. We would not worry who takes the credit because our aim would be to please our Lord, not to please our ego or to promote our own interests. We would see whether the religion of Allah is promoted or not, whether the ultimate objective would be achieved or not. This would make us more open minded, more accommodating, more merciful and kind to each other.

Unity is not a slogan; it is a mission. Wherever we are we should try to see how we can achieve unity among ourselves. Each one of us should ask ourselves: Do I want to be united with my fellow Muslims? What am I doing to work with others to promote my purpose and achieve my goal? If I have a problem, what am I doing to solve the problem? Unity does not come down as rain from the sky. Unity is not a miracle that will happen among those who do not believe in unity. Unity will only come if we strive for it and work hard to achieve it. It is a reward of faith, sincere efforts, lot of patience, good will, tolerance, and sincere commitment to the objectives and aims. Unity requires continuous efforts.


Sa`d ibn Abi Waqqas narrated: One day the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) was coming from `Aliyah (a location in Madinah) until he passed by the mosque of Banu Mu`awiyah. He entered the mosque and prayed two rak`ahs and we prayed with him. He prayed to his Lord for a long time, then he turned to us and he said, "I asked my Lord for three things. He granted me two but He declined one. I asked my Lord not to let my Ummah be destroyed by famine. He granted me that. I asked Him not to let my Ummah be destroyed by flood. He granted me that. I asked Him not to let my people fight each other. He declined this request" (Reported by Muslim).

The commentators of this hadith say that this means that Allah will protect the Ummah on the whole from natural disasters and He will not punish them as He punished previous communities, but as far as internal strife is concerned, they have to guard themselves from it.

Let us all work together to achieve unity among us and let us pray to Allah to bless us in this effort. Ameen.

wsalam,

Jazakillah. I see it was the moderator's delete button that was clicked and not the authorizer's delete button. If it was the other delete button I could have got the post back. I do apologize for that shining light. Can you post it again if possible? I know it's the worst thing to lose something you typed up. InshaAllah it won't happen again.

Wassalam

sister-in-islam here you have given some Ayaths some of which we need to understand
Unity of Muslims will last only if it is properly based on the Islamic Shariah, the "Rope of Allah"
Any deviation from this rule leads to dissension, corruption and numerous divisions of disunity.
It is these sects that are causing all the damage from within in the guise of Islam.
Most of these sects have been made by the kuffar and nothing good can come from them.
In your own article you write:
The commentators of this hadith say that this means that Allah will protect the Ummah on the whole from natural disasters and He will not punish them as He punished previous communities, but as far as internal strife is concerned, they have to guard themselves from it.
