The Foundations of the Unity of Ummah in the Light of Holy Quran and Sunnah
Muhammad Ayaz, Hafiz Iftikhar Ahmad, Nazir Ahmad Bhutta, Ph.D.

The Holy Quran is such a book of rectitude and instructions which has immersed itself the complete intellect for the human welfare. In fact it includes all type of matter whether dry or moist. There is no aspect or turn of human life, which has not been provided complete guidance to the human beings at every step. This also eliminates the doubts of the human nature, removes the suspicions and the nonsense, protects from the predicament of self- made concepts, abolishes the human consideration from every type of uncertainties and guardsman from every kind of misleading and guides him towards Allah Almighty, Who is the Lord and Master of all creatures. But the condition is that the man should seek guidance from Allah Almighty and may display obedience. At present, a major part of the Muslim Ummah is a victim of disintegration and differences. The efforts being carried out on the name of religious meditation is not for the preaching of Islam but is being wasted in the debate of Islam and infidelity among their own ranks. The religion of Islam, which is the preacher of human equality and unity, has become a source of promoting disintegration through deplorable efforts. Now the issue has gone beyond arguments and disputation, as no member of the Muslim Ummah is ready to listen the other’s opinion. A series of non-stop indiscriminate killing and bloodshed has initiated, and bonfires of hatred have been inflamed on the name of Islam, which is the key to affection, brotherhood and unity of the Ummah. The reason for this prevailing situation is due to the evading from the teachings of the Holy Quran and relating this achievement of benevolence to the Holy Quran. The Holy Quran is being considered as the book of guidance only to the extent of text, but the help regarding the corporeal and life after death is sought from the sources which are against the Holy Quran’s teachings and guidance. Before any ceremony or sermon, the verses of the Holy Quran are being recited, but then whatever is spoken or presented is entirely considered the spirit of the Holy Quran. The heaps of the hatred and animosity are raised. If we follow the principles of the unity for Muslim Ummah provided by Holy Quran and Sunnah of Prophet Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)the existing situation can entirely change.
