Islam is the only religion which teaches us the lesson of harmony, unity and strength among all the Muslims despite of any racial discrimination. Through various ayaat and ahadis it is very much evident that unity is the potency of the Muslim nation.
“And hold fast all of you together to the rope of ALLAH, and be not disunited.”
But what we are doing is totally opposite to it. We have divided ourselves into different sects and this was not the limit we several split into different races. Now if you ask someone who are you he is definitely going to tell you your race not going to called himself a Muslim. Where we are standing right now? Which path we are following? If today someone dies in a suicide attack than we will not say a Muslim martyred his life but a shia or a sunni has died. What we are doing? I am sure nobody has the answer. Peaces and harmony was the heritage of Muslims but I feel sorry to say that it has been adopted by other non-muslims. We have lost our heritage and teachings; we have forgotten what Islam has taught us. We all are busy in our own life, nobody cares about what is going on and why.
“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 (SAW) said:-
“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.”
There is a huge amount of Quranic verses teaches us the tutorial of unity and accord. But we have become dumb and blind to pay any heed towards the sayings of ISLAM and AHL-E-BAIT (AS). Lets pray for unity and brotherhood among Muslims and to lead the world. AMEEN.
