Allaah - the Most High - said:

ııAnd those who were given the Scripture ( the Jews and the Christians) did not split-up except out of baghee (hatred and envy) between each other, after the knowledge had come to them.ıı [Soorah Aali-ıImraan 3:19]

Imaam as-Saıdee (d.1376H) - rahimahullaah - said:

ııThis is why Allaah - the Most High ordered the Muslims with ijtimaaı (collectiveness) in their Religion, and prohibits them from tafarruq (splitting up). he informs them that they must not reject what Allaah revealed tot hem from the Book. Indeed the People of the Book (i.e. the Jews and Christians) did not split-up until after Allaah had revealed to them the Scripture, in which He ordered them with ijtimaaı (being unified). However, they did the opposite to what He ordered them with, due to mutual jealousy and hatred. So hatred and jealousy culminated in them having grudges and enmity between one another, then they fell into differing and splitting up. So ı O Muslims - beware of doing the likes of this.ıı [1]

Ibn Taymiyyah (d.728H) - rahimahullaah - said:

ııAllaah explained that their splitting only occurred after the knowledge had come to them, and which showed them what they were commanded to do and to avoid. For Allaah does not leave people to stray, except after giving them guidance, until He explains to them what they were commanded to do. And He informed that the reason for their tafarruq (splitting) was due to baghee (mutual envy, jealousy, hatred) And baghee occurs due to either falling short of the truth , or transgressing the limits. It is due either to abandoning an obligation, or doing something prohibited. So know that this is what necessitates tafarruq (splitting).ıı [2]


Imaam Ibnul-Qayyim (d.751H) - rahimahullaah - said:

ııIt is upon the one who speaks in this matter, or any other matter, that He should only do so based upon the knowledge and the truth: and that his objective should be sincerity to Allaah, to His Book, to His Messenger ; and the giving of sincere advice to his Muslim brothers. But if he makes the truth accord with his own whims and desires, then this will corrupt and ruin the hearts, the actions, and the state of affairs. Allaah - the Most High - said:

ııAnd if the truth were to be in accordance with their desires, then indeed the heavens and the earths - and all that is therein - would be corrupted and ruined.ıı [Sooratul-Muıminoon 23:71]

The Prophet (sallallaahu ıalayhi wa sallam) said: ııNone of you truly believes until he makes desires accord with what I have been sent with.ıı [3]

So ıilm (knowledge) and ıadl (justice) are the roots of every good, whereas dhulm (oppression) and jahl (ignorance) are the roots of every evil. And Allaah ı the Most High - sent His Messenger with the Guidance and the Religion of Truth, and he commanded the doing of justice between people and that none of them should follow their whims and desires.

Allaah - the Most High - said:

ııSo call to Islaam and stand firm, and do not follow their whims and desires, but say: ııI believe in whatever has been revealed by Allaah from the Book, and I have been commanded to do justice between you. Allaah is our Lord and your Lord, for us our deeds and for you your deeds. There is no dispute between us and you. Allaah will assemble us all, and to Him is the final return.ıı [Sooratush-Shooraa 42:15] [4]


Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (d.728H) - rahimahullaah - said:

ııJihaad against the nafs (soul) and its whims and desires is the foundation of jihaad against the unbelievers and the hypocrites. Indeed a person will not have the ability to wage jihaad against them, until he wages jihaad against his own soul and its whims and desires first.ıı [5]
