“Sunni” And “Shia” Sects Are Both Haram – Islamic Scholars


Culled from MuslimsAgainstTerror; renowned Muslim scholar, Zakir Naik has condemned the division of Muslims into named groups with verses from the Quran. Just like the “Christian” slang referred to those who followed Christ, so also did some innovators and possibly in use to slander, coined the “Sunni” slang to divide off those who allegedly followed “Sunnah of the Prophet,” however this, like with the “Shia” slang too are clear innovations as it is not a name the Prophet or Quran decided on, Dr. Naik explains.

He stated that Islam is straightforward: Obey Allah, obey His messenger…the authority…and when in doubt with your scholars, refer back to Quran and credible Hadith.

“And hold fast to the Rope of Allah, and be not divided among yourselves” Quran 3:103

“And hold fast to the Rope of Allah, and be not divided among yourselves” Quran 3:103

Be it Sunni, Shia, Hanafi, Hambali, Maliki, Wahaabi, Salafi, Tabliqi, Zaidi, Ja’afri, or any other name you divide yourself by. Our nabbi(SAW) used no such name and made no such division.

As for those who divide their religion and break up into sects, thou hast no part in them in the least: their affair is with Allah: He will in the end tell them the truth of all that they did. Quran 6:159

O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result. Quran 4:59

Abraham was neither a Jew nor a Christian, but he was one inclining toward truth, a Muslim [submitting to Allah ]. And he was not of the polytheists. Quran 3:67

And who is better in speech than one who invites to Allah and does righteousness and says, “Indeed, I am of the Muslims.” Quran 41:33

Say: “O People of the Book! come to common terms as between us and you: That we worship none but Allah; that we associate no partners with him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than Allah.” If then they turn back, say ye: “Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing to Allah’s Will). Quran 3:64

Let us all be Muslims. Simply Muslims. This is the best!
