UPON WHAT IS THE MUSLIM UNITY?

Muslims cannot be united except upon Salafiyyah: Being upon what the Prophet and his Companions were upon, calling to other than that is causing disunity among the Muslims, please take note. The only Taaifatu-Mansuurah (Vicotrious Sect), Firqatun-Naajiyah (Saved Sect) among the sects is the Ahlus-Sunnah Wal-Jama'ah which is the same as Ahlul-Hadith, as embodied in Salafiyyah. There is no confusion, please. Learn Islam correctly and you will find out.

Ash-Shaykh Saleem Al-Hilaali (may Allâh preserve him) wrote in Li Maadhaa Akhtar'tu al-Manhajas-Salafee ('Why I Have Chosen the Methodology of the Salaf'):

'This command to hold to the Book and the Sunnah according to the understanding of the Pious Predecessors is indicated in his statement (salaLlaahu alahy wa sallam) in the hadith of Al-Ir'baadh b. Saariyah (may Allâh be pleased with him):

'Whoever lives long among you will see a lot of differences, be wary of innovated practices (in the Deen) because they are misguidance. Whoever meets that among you should hold to my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the rightly-guided successors; hold unto it with your molar teeth.'

There is in the hadith of Hudhayfah that the Prophet (salaLlaahu alahy wa sallam) commanded him to hold to the root of a tree when there are differences, so as to stay away from misguidance. But there is in the hadith of Al-Ir'baadh the command that he should hold to the Sunnah of the Prophet (s) according to the understanding of the Sahabah, with his molar teeth, when there are differences, and that he should stay off the innovated practices because they are misguidance. Thus when we combine the two hadith a soothing meaning will come to the forth which is holding to the Sunnah of the Prophet (s) upon the understanding of the Pious Predecessors when the misguided sects appear and when there is no One Single Jama'aah (Jama'atul-Muslimeen which all the Muslims must belong) and their leader.

What indicates the foregoing is that the command that one should hold to the root of a tree in the hadith of Hudhayfah is not intended apparently. Rather its meaning is that one should be steadfast and patient on the truth, and that one should stay off all the sects of misguidance which are in opposition to the truth.

Or that its meaning is: The vast root of Islâm that is full of leaves will be blown off by strong winds such that its branches will veer off whereby none will remain except its Firm Root which will be daunting to the winds. It is at that point that Muslims must hold to this Root by all their might and strength because the root will grow once again irrespective of the strong and the militating winds.

Thus it is then it will be obligatory on every Muslim to extend his hand to the Group that holds to this Firm Root so as to save himself from all trials and harm.

This Group will not cease to be victorious on the truth until their last will fight Dajjaal.' End of quote.
