Our Love and Hatred

We Muslims seem to be blind in love and hatred of one another; with one we see only good, with the other only bad.

There are scholars of different opinions. One’s followers love him and hate all others. This way they do not know the flaws of their leader (that scholar) and goodness in others. Scholars themselves blindly give opinions (fatawa) against each other helping chao’s and confusion,  fights and duels between the rival parties (madhabs). Result – real issues of Muslims are not solved nor even touched, exaggerating them and Islam is getting bad name (wise people will never get distracted from real mission of Islam).

Quran gives solution:
“Who listen to speech and follow the best of it. Those are the ones Allah has guided, and those are people of understanding.”    
                                                                (Al Quran Surah az Zumar, 39:18)
Thus, Lord’s instruction is to listen to all of the scholars of Islam with respect but follow only what is the best (if you are of men of understanding!).
