How can unity be achieved among the Muslim Ummah
we are divided by our superiority and inferiority based on lines of race, colour, nationality,tribe, community, family lineage. …and infinite other factors
The sum of all these factors is called ‘Asabiyah’ in arabic.
It is narrated by Abu Daud that the Messenger of Allah
(Salal Lahu Alehi Wasalam) said, “He is not one us who calls for `Asabiyah, (nationalism/tribalism) or who fights for
`Asabiyah or who dies for `Asabiyah.”
” …People should give up their pride in nations because this is a coal from the coals of hell-fire. If they do not give this
up Allah (swt) will consider them lower than a lowly worm which pushes itself through khur (feces).” [abu Dawd and
Some verses of Quran analysing this issue
"And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of Allâh (i.e. this Qur’ân), and be not divided among yourselves, and
remember Allâh’s Favour on you, for you were enemies one to another but He joined your hearts together, so that, by
His Grace, you became brethren (in Islâmic Faith), and you were on the brink of a pit of Fire, and He saved you from it.
Thus Allâh makes His Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.,) clear to you, that you may be

“And verily this Ummah of yours IS A SINGLE UMMAH and I am your Lord and Cherisher: Therefore Fear Me (and no
“But people have cut off their affair (of unity), between them, into sects: Each party rejoices in that which is with itself.”
“Those who SPLIT up their religion, and become mere sects each party rejoicing in that which is with itself!”
…..that ye should remain steadfast in religion and make no DIVISIONS therein….. “
“O Men, We created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may KNOW one another
(NOT THAT YOU MAY DESPISE EACH OTHER).”
“And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the difference of your languages and colours.
Verily, in that are indeed signs for men of sound knowledge.”
True unity will be achieved when Asabiyah is abolished and the system of Governance during the times of Prophet Muhammad pbuh is returned….That system is called ‘Islamic Khilafah’(Caliphate).
One Allah.One Quran.One Prophet.
