Unity of muslims Essay

Islam is Peace . Islam condemns killing the innocents . Islam forbids killing the women & children even in the battle field. Islam says to be just & kind with the war prisoners . So, No terrorism in the name of Islam . Again, No killing innocents in the name of terrorism. Islam is all about peace , love & justice and all about defending them . So defend the innocents & resist the occupation, the killers & oppressors All together. And whosoever does not rule by what Allah (swt) has revealed, such are the Kafirun (disbelievers).” [ Al Qur’an 5:44] No muslim is the enemy of another Muslim . No Muslim country is the enemy of another Muslim country . stop fighting and making divisions among the muslims. Otherwise , we will experience much blasphemy, oppresion , occupation, killing . Be united under the flag of Islam . Oh Muslims, stand all together to defend yourself. Struggle for the victory ; not for the defeat . Allah (SWT) says in various verses in Qur’an :

“As for those who divide their religion and break up into sects, you have no part in them in the least: their affair is with Allaah. He will in the end tell them the truth of all that they did.” [Al Qur’an 6:159] “And hold fast, All together, by the rope Which Allah (stretches out for you), and be not divided among yourselves;” [Al-Qur’an 3:103] “And who is better in speech than he who calls to Allah and does good and says : “ I am indeed one of the Muslims.” “ [Al-Qur’an 41:33] And surely this your Ummah is one Ummah, and I am your Lord, so fear Me alone . But they have broken the affair of their religion into sects among themselves, each group rejoices in that which is with it. So leave them in their ignorance for a time. ( Al-Qur’an 23: 52 -54 ) Divisions, differences and disputes are the cause of the ummah’s defeat, as Allaah says : “And obey Allaah and His Messenger, and do not dispute (with one another) lest you lose courage and your strength departs, and be patient. Surely, Allaah is with those who are As-Saabiroon (the patient)” [al-Anfaal 8:46]

Brotherhood and Unity amongst Muslims
Why is it that when the Muslims of the 21st century hear that there has been an earthquake in Indonesia, Pakistan or a Tsunami along the borders of Asia
but do not feel pained? When they hear of such atrocities or sufferings happening to their beloved Muslim brothers across the world there is no shared grief or significant compassion? Why is it that today when we hear that our Muslim brothers and sisters around the world are being tortured mercilessly, their land and posessions destroyed/occupied; their children are being killed/enslaved in poverty and human rights are being annihilated, that we feel no pain? While we are living and enjoying the comforts and luxuries of the 21st century, our brothers and sisters are being oppressed all around us. It has become such that we have become immune to hearing such afflictions. It has become such that we find it hard to shed even one tear. My dear readers, whoever you are and wherever you are, have we forgotten the Hadith of Rasullullah ?

Rasullullah giving an example of Muslim unity is reported to have said in a Hadith: “The Muslim Ummah is like one body. If the eye is in pain then the whole body is in pain and if the head is in pain then the whole body is in pain” So we the Muslim Ummah, whatever colour, nationality or gender, wherever we are, are like this body. If we hear that any part of this Ummah is being oppressed, then we should feel this pain. My dear readers, our oppressed brothers and sisters are crying out for help. They find that the Muslims of the 21st century are asleep and there is no one to help them. The reason why we the Muslims are collapsing is because we do not have any love amongst us. We harbour hatred for one another and our worldly matters and materialistic pursuits have taken over our lives. Have we forgotten the beloved companions radiyallaho anhum of Rasullullah ? Have we even realised that they were of different colours and backgrounds. Hazrat Bilal was from Ethiopia , Hazrat Salman was of Persian decent, Hazrat Suhaib was from Rome and Hazrat Abu Zar was from Gifar. They used to love each other more than real brothers. These were the Sahabas. When Rasullullah made the Hijrah to Madinah, amongst them was Hazrat Abdur Rahman .

Rasullullah had just established peace between Hazrat Abdur Rahman and Hazrat Sa’ad Radhiallaho Anhu of Madinah. Rasullullah tells Sa’ad to take Hazrat Abdur Rahman as his brother. Hazrat Sa’ad says to Hazrat Abdur Rahman, “O Abdur Rahman, I am one of the richest men of Madinah, take half of my wealth and do whatever you want to do with it. I have two wives, take a look at them, whichever one pleases you, I will divorce her so that you can marry her.” This is the love that the Sahaba had amongst them. Can we find any two people in the world like this today? And this is the love that Islam is asking from all the Muslims around the world today. Has the time not come for all of us Muslims to unite again? The unity, which our Prophet has taught us, the unity that the Sahabas had, the Unity of Islam.
