 MUSLIM UNITY BASED ON  “AQEEDAH”

As the teachings of Islam clearly show us that Brotherhood and unity in Islam are based solely on the `Aqeedah of Islam (which is the foundation of Muslim belief).  The Mu’minoon are believers to one another and this belief has nothing to do with race, or any other type of invalid reason to unite but is rather a bond based on an ideological belief in Islam.

Four Schools of Thought – With no Contradiction to Quran and Hadees.

 The Four Scholars of Islam strived hard and sacrificed for collecting and  presenting true practise of Prophet Mohammed SAS in the in light of the information and sayings of Prophet Mohammed sas and Quran. They all,   Imam Abu Hanifa, Imam Malik, Imam Shafia and Imam Hambal did best with at most respect and piety towards  beloved Prophet Mohammed sas and the Teaching and Verses of Quran al Hakeem.

Imams Succeeded in Presenting Right Islam.

It is just that, the region they lived and the area they could reach by the means available in the time they lived, thru there students and followers convey the message of  Quran and the teachings of Prophet Mohammed sas to greater numbers of people around the world.  And they Alhamdulliah Succeeded in presenting the true Islam to the Muslim Umma in compliance with the teachings of Prophet Mohammed and the Verses of Quran with no contradiction.

We are one Umma

They all are True Schools of Thought and they do not contradict the teachings of Prophet Mohammed sas and the Quran. We are expected to respect all the four Imams and there followers. There is no difference among them which contradicts Teachings of Prophet Mohammed and Quran.

Unity is Strength

Unity is strength.  This is the reason Islam lays great stress on the importance of unity.  The Islamic concept of Towhid is the other name of the unity of humankind.  The corner stone in Islam is the unity.  Islam teaches us the message that we should not divide humans into sections and sects. 

The racial discrimination has been strictly prohibited in Islam.  In the last sermon from the Mount of Arafat the Holy Prophet had clearly announced that no Arab has any superiority over a non-Arab; or the white over the black.  Islam gives clear injunctions for the respect, safety, security and prosperity of the non-Muslims as well. Unity teaches peace, equality and paternity.  The absence of unity brings and breeds disruption, devastation and disputes. 

The Quran discusses the concept of unity on three levels.  Foremost is the unity of humanity.  The Quran in Sura Al-Hujurat (The Inner Apartments) says:

 “O, Mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes that you may know one another.  Verily, the most honourable of you with Allah is the one who has piety.” (49:13).

The Quran on second level refers to the unity of the people of the Books: the Jews, the Christians and the Muslims- In Sura Al-e-Imran the Quran says:

” O, people of the Book! Come to a word that is just between us and you, that we worship none but Allah, and that we associate no partners with him, and that none of us will take others as lords besides Allah.  Then if they turn away, say; Bear witness that we are Muslims” (3:64). 

Then on third level the Quran asserts on the unity of the Muslims.  In Sura Al-e-Imran the Quran says;

 “And hold fast, all of you together to the rope of Allah, and be not divided among yourselves.” (3:103).

Then Quran condemns sectarianism and regards it shirk (polytheism).  The Quran again in Sura Al-e-Imran says:

“O ye who believe! Fear Allah as He should be feared and die not except in a state of Islam.” 

This verse clearly ordains that we should strongly adhere to Islam.

 Holy Prophet Mohammed sas said; Allah also said; “whoever does not care about the affairs of the Muslims is not one of them.”  “The Muslims are like a body; if one limb aches, the whole body aches.”  

Muslims must find reasons and means to keep united.

In present day world we have several forces working in several directions as per the means, understanding and motivation they have we  only should pray that in rush to do good we should not get deviated from the true path shown by the Prophet Mohammed sas and the Teacings of Quran.   

Allah has been kind he in the Qur’an describes what unity in Islam as the Mu’minoon is (Believers are those that believe in Allah and His Messenger Muhammad) being united in a Brotherhood based on solely Islam:

“The Mu’minoon is but a single Brotherhood.” (The Holy Qur’an, 49:10)

Allah further defines this Brotherhood by explaining that Muslims are awliyyaa’ (allies, friends, and supporters) of one another and this again is based solely on Islam:

“The Believers, men and women, are protectors one of another: they enjoin the ma`roof (all of Islam), and forbid the munkar (all that is evil; kufr): they observe regular prayers, pay Zakat, and obey Allah and His Messenger. On them will Allah pour His mercy: for Allah is exalted in power, Wise?” (The Holy Qur’an, 9:71)  

Muhammad (Salla Allahu `alaihi wa sallam) indicated in several Ahadith on unity and brotherhood as we can see in his (saaws) Farewell Sermon (khuTbat ul-wadaa`):

“All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood.”

 And :

“A Muslim is the brother of another Muslim. He does not oppress him, nor does he leave him at the mercy of others.” (Sahih Muslim Book 032, Number 6219)

The Prophet said, “None of you will have faith till he wishes for his (Muslim) brother what he likes for himself.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 1, Book 2, Number 12)

We should think of applying the Teachings in our LIFE:

We know that the Religion of Islam is complete in the Revelation of Quran and the coming of Prophet Mohammed SAS.  All teachings, all guidance, all Commands, All limits and Approvals for Mankind are Complete and Available in the form of Quran and Sayings of Prophet Mohammed sas.  We have the protected Quran and Preserved Teachings of Prophet Mohammed in the form Sahih al Bukhari, Sahih Al Muslim, Sahih Al Termizi and few more. And the schools of thought in the form of four Imams which are in compliance to Quran and Hadith.

Put Teaching to Practice

A Great work is needed in the field of calling Muslims to the basics of Islam, 

1) Strengthen our Belief in Allah and The Day of Judgement and How we will be asked to give account of our time spent in the life of this world and  how only our good deeds  are going to stand for us in front of Allah and make us our day on the day of Judgement.

2) Five times Regular Prayers in the Mosques in time. With respect to Sunnah and Nawafil.  Zikar, our Mosques need to be full in the Fajr Prayers and not just on Friday Prayers and Ramadan.

3) Reading of Quran and trying to understand it to bring change in our life, and help us understand the world we living better. And try to understand the sayings and teachings of Prophet Mohammed ssa.  Our book of guidance should be Quran should be most dear to us.

4) Be a good Mannered Muslim, Transact in our day to day life in full compliance with people around us and our how Allah and the teachings of Prophet want us to.  The world should respect us because we are Muslims. We should generate liking form Islam in our fellow human beings, and attract them towards Islam by our manners and deeds and dealings.

5) Pay the Poor Due and Zakat and spend what ever we can in the cause of Allah and to give relief to the poor and the needy in the society and family. 

And be thankful to Allah for blessing you that you are expected to give it is very much possible that he could have kept you on the side of receiving zakat and charity.

Think about this it will make you understand the pain and agony and discomfort millions of people in the world are going thru due to lack of food, clothing, and basic needs of life.

This will make us to pay millions of Shuker to Allah for being kind to us for not putting us among in disadvantaged.

6) Be trust worthy and truthful, in all times and be just in all times and

7) Be good to the Parents and Family respect the right of the Parents, Wife, and Children near family and friends, and neighbours.

7) Make our Earning Halal, and Consume only Halal, And Refrain form all that is Haram ( Forbidden)

8) Be the one who cares for mankind and respects the creation of Allah and justify our stand on Islam so that they respect Islam. And never hurt any one unjustly.

9) And never transgerros the limits laid by Allah and His messenger.

Dawah Demands Deeds

OUR UNITY WILL MAKE US STRONG IT WILL BRING RESPECT IN THE EYES OF  FELLOW HUMAN and  Nations of the World  BEINGS AND THAT IN TURN WILL ENCOURAGE THEM TO KNOW MORE ABOUT ISLAM AND THE TEACHINGS OF QURAN AND OUR PROHET MOHAMMED SAS 

THIS WILL BE THE BEST WAY TO PUT THE MESSAGE OF ALLAH TO THE WORLD AND INVITE THEM TO THE FOLD OF ONENESS OF ALLAH AND BRING IT TO THE FOLD OF PEACE AND COMFORT OF ALLAH.

          May the Umman of Prophet Mohammed sas Remain United

    Unless WE the Muslims become the true Apostles of ISLAM we cannot impress upon any other NON-MUSLIMS. TODAY IN INDIA INSPITE OF 800 years rule of MUSLIM KINGS/EMPERORS . Very few (negligible) conversions to Islam have taken place FORCEFULLY . But most of the conversions or almost all conversions took place by the great SUFI SAINTS followers like HAZRAT KHWAJA REHMATULLAH ALAI-HAZRAT NIZAMAUDDIN. Guru Nanak was the Disciple of BABA SHAIK FARID and GURUGRANTH SAHIB -consists of detailed narraations of the GREAT SUFI SAINTS.
