Shi'a/Sunni/ Sects in general Debate

I dislike the fact that muslims fight each other. In my opinion the fact that  there are numerous divisions and sects and islam is the reason why the kilafat has failed to be reformed and thus why there is little unity among the muslim world. If someone asks me what religion are you I say "Muslim", if they ask what type of 'sect' I say I'm just muslim. Is there a problem with that? I won't say or hint what 'sect' i am classified under just to leave out all the fuss. We all believe 'la illaha illa Allah Muhammad rasul Allah' and submit to the will of Allah.

  1. its ridiculous! i hate it actually. i've heard some people back in syria say that I'm not a muslim because I refuse to choose a sect and refuse say whether i'm hanafi or maliki or wtv. Its all balogne to me. We're muslims and we should read the Quran and Sunnah and thats it.

  2. yep that's a prophecy of the nabi peace be upon him when people claim 94598 versions of Islam and all of them to be right (something along this)... I don't get the first sentence :S the sects ARE the reason why there is little unity amongst muslims. We can't be a real ummah because we are devided over the littlest things. Even within sects we are devided, like for example I was watching the news the other day Another brother and an organization he is in is fighting for the right for Canada to not let Zakir Naik into the country for a 2 week seminar .. Imagine that when a muslim dosent want another muslim in the same country as him

  3. Okay, sorry for the way that WAS badly written LOL,

    A: Omg Thats so ridiculous for them to say that! That's just sheer ignorance. Exactly! Alhumdulilah

    P.I: I've seen so many versions of different hadiths it gets really confusing wallah, Yeah it is because between the sects is a great deal of tension and most of tthe divisions are political. Its so sad, what was he reason not to let Dr Naik in canada? xx

  4. I get that a lot too. The school of thoughts are ok as long as they don't go against the teachings of our beloved and the Quran: I don't say which school of thought I follow because I know so little. I always say I am Muslim, if I'm asked what SOT I follow, I say the Quran and sunnah of Mohammed pbuh. Shiaism is actually not considerEd Islam , because they slander the sahabah amongst many other things ... ( lol not saying that out of the blue I looked into Shias and read books and ulamah rulings )

  6. the only one I supect of going against the teaching of the quran are the ahmadis, but I don't know enough about them to extensively brand them as not a school of thought. To me Shia Islam is Islam because if you look into it not ALL of them slander the sahabah and alot of that is exageratted. , sister becareful when you look into shia islam because you'll get alot of bias information; heres a website: www.Al-islam.org its completely non-bias and will give you sources from both school of thoughts :)

  8. @ZimimeXoxo, dont be so silly. Firstly, whigh book did you read? SubhanAllah its amazing how sunnis manage to find all these amazing books by shias which even shias havn't read! Shias do not slander the sahaba, if you actually do your research, you will find that shias may say 'la3nat Allah 3ala...', which means 'may Allah remove his blessing from...'. This is not slandering, but a request to Allah to remove his blessing from those who hurt those dearest to the Prophet (SAW). Also, these 'sahaba' whom you speak of. Do you really think that somone who openly questioned Mohammed's Prophethood is considered sahaba? and somone who refused to give the Prophet (SAW) a pen and paper on his deathbed so that he may right a will, accusing the Prophet of being 'delirious' is sahaba? Somone who the day after his Prophet died, organised a secret, illegal election to elect a new khalifah, leaving out the one man who was actually destined to lead islam? the one man who the Prophet anounced to the whole ummah would succeed him? The man who forcibly took away the land left to Fatima by her father Mohammed, so that she would refuse to ever speak to him again? SubhanAllah that somone who caused so much pain to the Prophets family is considered 'sahaba'. Do you recognise these actions, i think not, but just so you know, Umar Al Khatab was the one who did all these things. LOL i could sit here write now and write an essay on the so-called 'sahaba' and some of the people important in the sunni sect. Don't get me started on Aisha. By the way, no offence to any sunnis, i have lots of respect for sunnis, and admire many of the elements of your sect, and i realise that the majority of sunnis are very respectful and knowledgeable.
