And hold fast, all together, unto the bond with God, and do not draw apart from one another.
And remember the blessings which God has bestowed upon you: how, when you were enemies,
He brought your hearts together, so that through His blessing you became brethren; and [how,
when] you were on the brink of a fiery abyss. He saved you from it. In this way God makes clear His
messages unto you, so that you might find guidance.
[Al-i Imran, 3: 103]
It seems that God’s reminder in the Qur’an has befallen onto many deaf ears. Despite claiming to be the defenders of sunnah, many fell prey to the venomous doctrine of sectarianism. The fires of sectarianism schism are stoked for political means and many are unable to think through the real
world. How do we claim to adhere to the Qur’an and Sunnah when we are propogating hatred and discrimination? There is no basis for this in the empowering Qur’an and the enlightening sunnah.
