The curse of sectarianism

Ahmad Musa

If Muslims are not careful, they may end up causing so much damage to the Ummah that it will take many generations to recover. The poison of sectarianism is spread and financed by Saudi Arabia and its Arabian allies.

Internally, the Muslim Ummah faces no greater threat than the curse of sectarianism. This is a raw nerve that can be touched to spark a tsunami of hatred that will sweep otherwise sensible and intelligent people. We are witnessing this in Syria, Pakistan, Bahrain and a host of other places. The fountainhead of this fitnah is Saudi-occupied Arabia.

Muslims, it seems, are not too concerned about what is happening to their Palestinian brothers and sisters at the hands of the Zionists; or what the Americans are doing to their brothers and sisters in Afghanistan and Pakistan and what they did in Iraq. But tell them some Muslims are disrespectful to the Sahabah and they can be worked into a frenzy. They can bomb masjids and blow innocent people to pieces, all in the name of “defending” the honour of the Sahabah!

Do the bombers emulate the example of the Sahabah? They should ask themselves whether the Saudis respect the Sahabah, the noble Messenger of Allah (pbuh) or even Allah (swt). If Islamic Law were applied to the House of Saud, not one member would have a safe head over his shoulders! Muslims wake up.
