The Righteous Sect of muslims, among 73 Sects
I was searching the Righteous sect, and was eager to find it as it is very important, because we will be accountable for it on the judgement day, Majority of Muslims are divided in Sects now a days, where our Allah is one, our prophet Rasool Allah Sallalahu Alyeh wasalam is one, our Holy book Qur’aan is one, and we would like to called us 1 Ummah, then why we muslims are labeled ourselves with sects?
Where Allah said in Qur’aan,
“And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided. And remember the favor of Allah upon you – when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favor, brothers. And you were on the edge of a pit of the Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus does Allah make clear to you His verses that you may be guided.” (Surah 3, Ayat 103)
O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result. (Surah 4, Ayat 59)
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.(Surah 6, Ayat 159)
Rasool Allah Sallalahu Alyeh wasalam Said,
“There will be 73 sects of muslims , and one of them is on the right path, Sahaba asked, which one of those is righteous? Rasool Allah Sallalahu Alyeh wasalam said They are those who are (i.e., live, act, and believe) as I and my companions are today.” (Abu Dawud)
and it is really important for us to follow the True Sunnah as Rasool Allah Sallalahu Alyeh wasalam said, “whoever put lie on me, attach anything with me which i didnt said or did, his place is in hell.” (Al-bukhari)
I hope this might helpful to all muslims to get on the right way, as it is much needed to unite this Ummah.
May Allah guide all of us, and make us a true Muslim. Ameen.
