Consequences of Sectarianism t


youngster should get the time from his schedule to read books and gain the knowledge, and by getting real and true knowledge he must be free from slavery and choose the best way by his own efforts. As the day of hereafter will come, you will have to give your accountability by your own, so isnít it better to choose your way by your own rather being accountable for following in an othersí way. Isnít it amazing that some one does the sin and you get the punishment for that. Why people donít reach at the right path even after gaining so much knowledge? In my opinion this is because we read the books of our own choice which support our own beliefs, which we have had from our parents. And whenever any book which is not in favor of our beliefs we hastily stop to read, because that would lead us to astray from the path on which we are, or in other word we can say that will change us from our beliefs because we donít want to be changed as we already know that we are on right path. How much surprising it is that without knowing any thing we decide ourselves that we are on right path. Can you think or be agreed upon a person who listen very carefully oneís statements an arguments but without knowing others arguments he gives the final decision? Will you accept the decision of that person? Will that decision be a right decision? Surely you will say NO. You will never ever accept the decision of that person because it is possible that person gives a decision which might not be in your support, as you can not judge to whom he will listen and in which personís favor he gives a decision. Same situation is here in our religious matters. Just because of that, people are happy with their beliefs, sects and persons with whom they are and even they donít want any changes in their selves. As a result, this thing becomes a very dangerous to our religion. And on the other hand Muslims are so weak to defend; rather defending they are fighting with one another like enemies. Yes exactly like enemies. There is a lot of hate in our hearts and every time we blame each other.


Al-Muslim ukhwat-ul-Muslim
This is saying of holy prophet MUHAMMAD SAWW, which means ďMuslims are brothers of each otherĒ, but we have destroyed all the laws just by thinking that only we are right and pacing towards the right path. Please think that what kind of path is this that we Muslims are fighting with each other? Did MUHAMMAD SAWW teach us in this way that chop your heads and fight with each other and blame each other? NOÖÖÖ.. This is happening just because we donít know about our religion, and in this situation we must follow the QURAN and the way of life of MUAHAMMAD SAWW and judge our selves that whether we are on right path or not.

LAW OF ALLAH
Chapter 3 verse 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 Allah's favor 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 doth Allah make His Signs clear to you: That ye may be guided. Chapter 3 verse 104: Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong: They are the ones to attain felicity. Chapter 3 verse 105: Be not like those who are divided amongst themselves and fall into disputations after receiving Clear Signs: For them is a dreadful penalty. Chapter 3 verse 106: On the Day when some faces will be (lit up with) white, and some faces will be (in the gloom of) black: To those whose faces will be black, (will be said): "Did ye reject Faith after accepting it? Taste then the penalty for rejecting Faith". Chapter 3 verse 107: But those whose faces will be (lit with) white, - they will be in (the light of) Allah's mercy: therein to dwell (for ever).

In verse 103, the losses from sectarianism and the way to prevail from them is mentioned, and it is also mentioned that remember your time when you were the enemies of each other and were about to reach to fire of hell, but ALLAH did his mercy upon you and you became brothers. But today again we are in same situation mentioned above, due to which ALLAH SWW ignored us. So many sects are being made from the sects and we are continuously dividing, and every sect is arguing that it is on right way. In this condition we must read the above verses 105 and 106, which we become able to know that either we are the people whose end will be like this? Verse 104 talks about a sect of people and their results in verse 107, their signs are that, they order for good and forbid from evil like the prophet MUHAMMAD SAWW and
