Can Muslims unite upon differences?

We often hear the principle of Hasan Al Banna where he said: “We co-operate upon what we agree upon and we excuse each other for what we have disagreement upon”. In other words Bob Marley’s saying: “One love, one heart let’s join together and feel allright”. Or as Rodney King said: “Can we all just get along”.

This principle is not an Islamic principle. This is because Allah has commanded us to obey the Messenger (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam) and to return all the matters we disagree upon to the book of Allah and the Sunnah of the Messenger (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam) not to excuse each other in disagreement as this principle said.

Hence we cannot unite unless we return to what Allah and his Messenger have said. And if we do not take this solution which the Qur’an has commanded us to take we would forever find ourselves in an abyss which we would be unable to depart from.

I therefore urge the Shia to stop disrespecting the companions of the Messenger and return that matter to the book of Allah and the Authentic Sunnah. And the book of Allah is clear on this matter and has commanded us to make du’a for them and to respect them.

And I urge the Sufis to not exaggerate the status of the pious servants of Allah by calling them in their Du’a. But rather to make du’a to Allah alone without any partner.

And I urge the Ikhwaan Al Muslimeen to return their matters to Allah and his Messenger rather to their group. And all the partisans I urge them to do so.

And all the hardcore Madhabists I urge them to follow the Sunnah of the Messenger (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam) and not to follow any scholar blindly by taking everything he says as gospel.

Allah has said: “And if you disagree upon something return it to Allah and his Messenger if you believe in Allah and the Last day.. “
