Muslim Unification at Time of Crisis
Author: Shaykh Abdul-Muhsin al-Abbad
There is no doubt that it is obligatory upon Ahlul-Sunnah in every time and place to unify and be merciful to each other, and to cooperate upon righteousness and taqwa. However it is distressing that in this time we see differing, coldness and indifference emanating from some of Ahlul-Sunnah which has resulted in some of them busying themselves with disparagement of people, warning, and boycotting. This, whereas it is obligatory upon them to expand their efforts in combating the disbelievers and the People of Innovation who oppose Ahlul-Sunnah, and it is obligatory upon them to be merciful amongst themselves and bringing each other together, some of them reminding others with gentleness and compassion. I thought it appropriate to write some words of advice to all of them asking Allah, Mighty and Magnificent, that He bring about benefit through these words. All I desire is to correct the affairs as much as I am able, and accord comes only from Allah: it is in Him that I place my trust and to him that I turn in penitence. I ask Allah that He grant His accord and firmness to all, and that He correct what is between them, bring their hearts together, guide them to the paths of peace, and remove them from the darkness to the light; He is the All-Hearing, the One who responds.
