While many Muslims talk about unity, their starting point is often flawed. It begins at the point where the other side is tolerated but not accepted as equally legitimate.
The US-zionist-Saudi-backed takfiris in Syria are determined to instigate sectarian warfare in the Ummah because they are so consumed by hatred. Their tactics include attacks on shrines of the Ahlul Bayt as well as Sahaba that supported them. What kind of people that call themselves Muslims would indulge in such behavior?
Just a very brief recap of what was previously encountered- we said that there is an asabiyah that was submerged in the psyche or in the social mind of the people around the Prophet- it doesn't matter who they were, generally speaking that asabiyah was submerged. There were times that this asabiyah expressed itself and we covered some incidents along those lines. We said that Al Muhajirin and Al Ansar (radi Allahu anhum) had their exchange of words and their exchange views on the day the Prophet was to be buried and in the exchange of statements we sensed that there is this asabiyah but it wasn't an asabiyah that was operational and it wasn't an asabiyah that was divisive.
Sectarianism exists on both sides of the divide. It is imperative to understand the root problems to overcome it, urges Abu Dharr.
We all have some historical information about the formative years of Islam; what we do not have is a closer look or scrutiny of those formative years that we hearken back to. You may have realised that in many of the khutbahs that have come your way on this occasion every week quoting Allah’s Prophet verbally is not something that is liberally done, in other words, much caution is practised unlike the other Muslims, who on this day and this time begin to parrot what Allah’s Prophet says, we have a more disciplined and rigorous approach to Allah’s Prophet.
