Bismillah-hir Rahman-nir Raheem (in the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

Many Muslims just tear each other down when they differ. This is just wrong. Allah Has Guided us to the right way of dealing with differences and it’s very simple.

“O you who believe! Obey Allah and His Messenger and those of you who are in authority. If you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if you believe in Allah and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for final determination.” [Holy Quran 4:59]

As you can see, the answer is simple. There’s no need for name calling, no need for belittling each other, no need to even argue. If you are sincere Muslims, seeking the truth, then follow what Allah Has Commanded us to do – refer it to Allah and His Messenger! How do we do this? We refer to Qur’an and Sunnah (authentic hadith – that have been classified as strong narrations. Not narrations that are weak and not supported by other evidences, nor narrations that are from some person that is reliant upon lineage for authenticity).

Brothers and Sisters in Islam, if we follow this one ayat in Qur’an, why should we even argue with each other?

Brothers and Sisters in Islam, we need to UNITE, not differ, so tear down the barriers between you and your brothers and sisters.
