Quran's Call for Unity

Discussing historical facts or jurisprudential differences should not in any way discourage Muslim unity since the majority of Muslim historians from all schools of thought agree on similar historical facts. Differences between the philosophers, scholars and thinkers of the schools of thought can be either constructive or destructive. If they lead to the fragmentation of the Muslim nation, then they are unacceptable, as the Holy Qur'an says:

"But they have broken their religion among them into sects, each group rejoicing in its belief."[303]

Who are Shi'ah?


The term "Shi'ah" is an adjective used by Muslims who follow the Imams from the Family of the Prophet (Ahl al-Bayt). They use it not for reasons of sectarianism or for causing divisions amongst Muslims. They use it because the Qur'an uses it, the Prophet Muhammad used it, and the early Muslims used it - before words such as Sunni or Salafi ever came into existence.

Sir William Muir on Hazrat Ali

(1819 - 1905) Scottish scholar and statesman.  Held the post of Foreign Secretary to the Indian government as well asLieutenant Governor of the Northwestern Provinces.

q       “Endowed with a clear intellect, warm in affection, and confiding in friendship, he was from the boyhood devoted heart and soul to the Prophet.  Simple, quiet, and unambitious, when in after days he obtained the rule of half of the Moslem world, it was rather thrust upon him than sought.”

[The Life of Mahomet, London, 1877, p. 250]
