Why are Muslims divided into sects?

When all the Muslims follow one and the same Qur’an then why are there so many sects and different schools of thought among Muslims? 1. Muslims Should be United: It is a fact that Muslims today, are divided amongst themselves. The tragedy is that such divisions are not endorsed by Islam at all. Islam believes in fostering unity amongst its followers. The Glorious Qur’an says: “And hold fast, all together, by the rope which Allah (stretches out for you), and be not divided among yourselves;” [Al-Qur’an 3:103] Which is the rope of Allah that is being referred to in this verse? It is the Glorious Qur’an. The Glorious Qur’an is the rope of Allah which all Muslims should hold fast together. There is double emphasis in this verse. Besides saying ‘hold fast all together’ it also says, ‘be not divided’. Qur’an further says, “Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger” [Al-Qur’an 4:59] All the Muslim should follow the Qur’an and authentic ahadith and be not divided among themselves. 2. It is Prohibited

Did Jesus Christ really crucify?

One of the fundamental beliefs of Christianity is that Jesus had died and allowed for the shedding of his blood for the sake of granting forgiveness to people. In other words, Jesus had died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins. Let us investigate this topic from the Bible, and find out whether Jesus: was sent to be crucified or that he was crucified... 1: The willingness of Jesus Christ to Die for Our Sins  Peter and the two sons of Zebedee were with Jesus Christ before the elders of the people and the  chief priests came to take him to crucify him. Jesus at this point talked to Peter and the two sons of  Zebedee as in Matthew 26:38 "Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even  unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me." Then Jesus went a little further away from them and  prayed to God as in Matthew 26:39 "And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed,  saying, O my Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me: neverthe

Christmas and Muslims

  To a Muslim living in the West, the Christmas Holiday period is one of the most stressful times because of the differences in our attitudes towards holidays and celebrations of the status quo. Even in Islamic countries, there can be misunderstandings on these issues with our Christian colleagues. The following essay is my personal attempt at bridging this gap to promote an understanding of the Islamic perspective regarding this topic. The word Christmas comes from the Old English term Cristes maesse, meaning "Christ's mass." This was the name for the festival service of worship held on December 25th to commemorate the birth of Jesus, may Allah exalt his mention. There is neither certain information on the date of his birth nor even on the year. One reason for this uncertainty is that the stories of his birth, recorded in the New Testament books of Matthew and Luke, were written several decades after the event. Those who wrote it gave no specific dates for the events the

Muslims as seen by others and themselves?

  The Muslims are those who submit themselves to Allaah, establish His laws, act according to the Book of their Lord and the Sunnah (teachings)of their Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), do what Allaah and His Messenger have commanded them and abstain from that which is forbidden. At the point when that is the situation, their rivals take a gander at them with stunningness, deference, and regard, since they realize that their adherence to Islam and the genuine religion raises their status before Allaah and empowers them to assume responsibility for grounds and people. So their adversaries take a gander at them with wonderment and regard and dread them. However, when their obligation to Islam gets powerless and they present developments in their religion, at that point their adversaries peer down on them with hatred and despising and all sensations of dread vanish. As to how the Muslims see themselves, they need to keep an eye on each other and take a gander at the def
