Mu’adh ibn Jabal reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Allah the Exalted said: Those who love each other for the sake of My glory will be upon pulpits of light and they will be envied by the prophets and the martyrs.” [Tirmidhi] - Today we find that the Ummah is disunited. On a smaller scale, our masaajid are divided, and on a personal scale our hearts are divided. One of the main causes of all this is having hatred/malice/rancor/GRUDGES in our hearts for one another…having ill feelings and/or grudges is a sign of a sick heart.

Jaabir said: “I heard the Messenger of Allaah saying: “The devil has despaired of being worshipped by those who engage in prayer in the Arabian Peninsula but (has not lost hope) in creating dissension among them.” [Muslim] HOW TRUE IS THIS TODAY?!

And We will remove whatever is in their breasts of resentment, [so they will be] brothers, on thrones facing each other. [AL Hijr 15:47]

- So we see that having a purified heart is akin to the heart of the people of Jannah…IN FACT, a Prophetic Hadith teaches us exactly this! -Anas Ibn Maalik narrated: “We were sitting with the Prophet once when he said: “A man from the dwellers of Paradise will walk in now” so a man from the Ansaar (i.e. residents of Madeenah) walked in whose beard was dripping from the effect of ablution and who held his slippers with his left hand. The next day the Prophet walked in. On the third day, the Prophet said the same thing, and the same man

said the same thing, and the same man once again

walked in. When the Prophet left the gathering, „Abdullaah Ibn „Amr followed that man and said to him: `I had a misunderstanding with my father and swore not to stay in his house three

nights, so if you permit me I would like to spend these three nights with you` The man said: `Yes, I permit you.`” Anas added: “„Abdullaah Ibn „Amr told us that he spent three nights and did not notice that the man prayed the optional night prayers during any of these nights, but if he woke up during the night, he would simply mention Allaah. Nonetheless, I never heard him utter except good things, so when the three nights finished, I almost belittled his deeds (as they were insignificant) and I said to him: `O slave of Allaah! There was not dispute between me and my father or anger, but I heard the Prophet saying thrice: “A man from the dwellers of Paradise will walk in now” and you walked in all three times, so I wanted to sleep in your place to see what you do in order to imitate you, but I did not see that you exert extra effort in performing any extra deeds. How did you reach such status to deserve what the Prophet said about you?` He replied: `My deeds are nothing more than what you saw` Then when I left, he called me back in and said: `My deeds are nothing more than what you saw, but the only thing I do is that I do not hold any grudge against any Muslim or envy anyone for what bounties Allaah has granted them`; thereupon „Abdullaah Ibn „Amr you this rank”. [Ahmad] said to him: “This difficult quality to obtain is what granted

- OH MY BROTHER, OH MY SISTER! Which one of you wants to join this man in Jannah? Don’t we all?! In that case, take 15 secs and forgive everyone and make intention to reconcile your differences… - When people went to visit Abu Dujaanah in his death sickness, they saw him happy and his face radiant; they asked him about the reason, to which he replied: “I have two qualities I possessed in my life; one is that I never interfered in that which did not concern me, and the second is that I always had a pure heart, free from spite towards my fellow Muslims”. - Abu Hurayrah said that the Messenger of Allaah said: “It is not lawful for a Muslim to forsake his (Muslim) brother beyond three days; and whosoever does so for more than three days, and then dies, will certainly enter the Hell.” [Abu Daawood]

Az-Zubair ibn Awwam reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “There has come to you the diseases of the nations before you: envy and hatred, and hatred is the razor; it shaves

the religion and it does not shave hair. By the one in whose hand is my soul, you will not believe until you love one another. Shall I tell you something which, if you did, you would love each other? Spread peace between yourselves.” [Ahmad]

- People can hold different opinions but do not have to become enemies due to this. Yoosuf As-Sadafi said: “I never saw anyone wiser than Imaam Ash-Shaafi‟ee, I argued with him once about a matter but we could not come to an agreement, so when he saw me later, he took hold of my hand and said: `O Abu Moosaa! Can‟t we disagree and remain brothers?`” - Competing over worldly matters results in spite in most cases; this is why Islam forbade a person from attempting to buy something that his Muslim brother has already started negotiating about, or proposing to a woman who a fellow Muslim has approached earlier. - The zeal of attaining high posts and positions makes a person envious; Al-Fudhayl Ibn „Iyaadh said: “Striving to reach high posts and positions and leadership makes people envious and leads them to transgressing other people‟s rights.” - Nu`maan Ibn Basheer reported that the Messenger of Allaah said: “Straighten your rows (during prayer) or Allaah would create dissension amongst you”.
