6:159
Sahih International

Indeed, those who have divided their religion and become sects – 

you, [O Muhammad], are not [associated] with them in anything. Their affair is only [left] to Allah ; then He will inform them about what they used to do.
Urdu

جن لوگوں نے اپنے دین میں (بہت سے) رستے نکالے اور کئی کئی فرقے ہو گئے ان سے تم کو کچھ کام نہیں ان کا کام خدا کے حوالے پھر جو کچھ وہ کرتے رہے ہیں وہ ان کو (سب) بتائے گا

Volume 4, Book 56, Number 803 :
Narrated by Hudhaifa bin Al-Yaman

The people used to ask Allah’s Apostle about good, but I used to ask him about evil for fear that it might overtake me. Once I said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We were in ignorance and in evil and Allah has bestowed upon us the present good; will there by any evil after this good?” He said, “Yes.” I asked, “Will there be good after that evil?” He said, “Yes, but it would be tained with Dakhan (i.e. Little evil).” I asked, “What will its Dakhan be?” He said, “There will be some people who will lead (people) according to principles other than my tradition. You will see their actions and disapprove of them.” I said, “Will there by any evil after that good?” He said, “Yes, there will be some people who will invite others to the doors of Hell, and whoever accepts their invitation to it will be thrown in it (by them).” I said, “O Allah’s Apostle! Describe those people to us.” He said, “They will belong to us and speak our language” I asked, “What do you order me to do if such a thing should take place in my life?” He said, “Adhere to the group of Muslims and their Chief.” I asked, “If there is neither a group (of Muslims) nor a chief (what shall I do)?” He said, “Keep away from all those different sects, even if you had to bite (i.e. eat) the root of a tree, till you meet Allah while you are still in that state.”

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 206 :
Narrated by Hudhaifa bin Al-Yaman

The people used to ask Allah’s Apostle about the good but I used to ask him about the evil lest I should be overtaken by them. So I said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We were living in ignorance and in an (extremely) worst atmosphere, then Allah brought to us this good (i.e., Islam); will there be any evil after this good?” He said, “Yes.” I said, ‘Will there be any good after that evil?” He replied, “Yes, but it will be tainted (not pure.)” I asked, “What will be its taint?” He replied, “(There will be) some people who will guide others not according to my tradition? You will approve of some of their deeds and disapprove of some others.” I asked, “Will there be any evil after that good?” He replied, “Yes, (there will be) some people calling at the gates of the (Hell) Fire, and whoever will respond to their call, will be thrown by them into the (Hell) Fire.” I said, “O Allah s Apostle! Will you describe them to us?” He said, “They will be from our own people and will speak our language.” I said, “What do you order me to do if such a state should take place in my life?” He said, “Stick to the group of Muslims and their Imam (ruler).” I said, “If there is neither a group of Muslims nor an Imam (ruler)?” He said, “Then turn away from all those sects even if you were to bite (eat) the roots of a tree till death overtakes you while you are in that state.”

A Muslim, Not a Sunni or Shia

  1. Thanks for eye opening posts.However:Everyone has right to follow whatever seems right to them. Consequently, that generates sectarianism, however, Shia Sunni rift is unIslamic because both are Muslim and Muslim only.The members of various sects, Hanafi, Beralvi, Ahle hadith, Ahle sunnat, Ahle Qura'n –Syed, non syed Sunni syed shia syed are part of Muslim Ummah and all of them should remain united against any external force to cause cracks in them.

  2. How do you accept hadith at all? Please consider.

    You do not accept the name sunni or shia, however you are quick to show hadith that are ONLY accepted by those that claim that name. The very idea of Hadith was contrived in the context of the division.

    Consider this. Before the divide there were no hadith. After the divide the hadith were compiled. consider that the Quran is not in dispute, but the current dispute is over: Actions based on Traditions, Traditions based on Hadith, Rulings based on man’s understanding of things, and Culture. Notice, just notice, how there is no problem understanding the Quran, nor is there an issue with ANY of the Qur’an’s words.

    I implore you to ponder. Reread the Quran and consider the orders that tell you to follow the Hadith?

    What does Allah say? Ask? Command?

    In what other Hadith other than Allah’s guidance would you accept? Have you not considered that if Allah had wanted and needed to give us more that he could have made the Qur’an bigger, more full, and more difficult? Does Allah’s perfect guidance for mankind tell you to find more guidance outside of it?

    I implore!

  3. Indeed, those who have divided their religion and become sects – you, [O Muhammad], are not [associated] with them in anything. Their affair is only [left] to Allah ; then He will inform them about what they used to do. (The Noble Quran 6:159)
