As the saying goes, ”Unity is Strength” but unfortunately we have reduced Islam to rituals and forgotten other important tenets.
Muslim unity is a Fard (obligatory duty) according to the Quran and Traditions of the Prophet Mohamed (peace and blessings be upon him).
Consider the following From the Quran (49:10):
”The Believers are but a single Brotherhood: So make peace and reconciliation between your two (contending) brothers; and fear ALLAH, that ye may receive Mercy. Also from the Quran (3:103): ”And hold fast, all together, by the rope which ALLAH (stretches out for you), and be not divided among yourselves; and remember with gratitude God’s favour 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 ALLAH make HIS Signs clear to you: That ye may be guided.
The Messenger of ALLAH also mentioned that ”In their love, kindness and compassion for each other, the believers are like a human body: when one part of it is hurt, the rests sympathizes with it in weakness and fever
ALLAH made hajj as a means of unifying us as One Ummah regardless of our status in life. Lets try to start acting in trying to unite our families together first then our community etc. Lets try to arrange a weekly family meeting or weekly Muslim Students Association Meeting then after advising each other and forgiving each other we can invite a learned brother or sister to remind us about our responsibilities to ALLAH as Muslims.
Lets start doing this for ALLAH sake. Let’s ensure politics does not divide us as Muslims hating each other because of the Kuffar or for worldly gains. May ALLAH keep guiding us and protect us from any satanic influences.
