The Right Path:

A newly converted Muslim came to know from the scholars of

different schools of Muslim thought that they all were united on one
Prophet’s Hadith “ My Ummah will be divided into 72 sects, all will
go to hell except one”

He decided to find the right path of Heaven but that was only
possible after studying & discussing the “Origin of Sects in Islam”.
He collected six most important books of Islam ( Bukhari, Muslim,
Mishqaat, Termizi, Ibn-e-Majah & Tarikh-e-Tibri) He found out the
most important incident, mentioned in all the six books related to
his search:

On the last days of the Prophet (PBUH) when he was seriously ill
on his bed. All the family members were present there including few
Sahaba, whispering each-other. Suddenly Prophet asked Umer bin
Al-Khattab (Second Khalifah) to provide him with material (pen &
paper) to write down his last wish (Waseeha) “ so that you would
never be astray (misguided)”. Umer bin Al-Khattab answered loudly
to Prophet (PBUH) “Inner-rajula Layahjur. Hasboona-Kitaab-Allah”
(This guy has lost his senses. Allah’s book is enough for us) When
Prophet (PBUH) heard his answer & said to him “Qoomu Enni”
( get out from here). But in Bukhari it is mentioned in same Arabic
words with different (light) English translation:

(Bukhari) Volume 7, Book 70, Number 573:

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

When Allah's Apostle was on his death-bed and in the house there
were some people among whom was 'Umar bin Al-Khattab, the
Prophet said, "Come, let me write for you a statement after which
you will not go astray." 'Umar said, "The Prophet is seriously ill and
you have the Qur'an; so the Book of Allah is enough for us." The
people present in the house differed and quarrelled. Some said to
Umer "Go near so that the Prophet may write for you a statement
after which you will not go astray," while the others said as Umar
said. When they caused a hue and cry before the Prophet, Allah's
Apostle said to Umar "Go away!" Narrated 'Ubaidullah: Ibn 'Abbas
used to say, "It was very unfortunate that Allah's Apostle was
prevented from writing that statement for them because of their
disagreement and noise."

Let us see what the Holy Qur’an says about the Pen & the Holy
Prophet in Sura Al-Qalam verses 1 to 4:

1- By the Pen & what they write,

2- You (O’ our Prophet ) by the grace of the Lord, are not mad,

3- And verily there is for you a recompense unending,

4- And most certainly you stand on sublime morality,

Umer bin Al-Khattab got angry & left Prophet’s bed with all his
companions to Bani-Saqifah to choose a Khalifah. During the
process he came to know about Prophet’s (PBUH) demise & his
funeral timings, announced by Syedna Ali’s messenger but some of
them were stopped by Omer bin Al-Kattab, those who wanted to
attend the funeral with these words “decision of a Khalifah after the
Prophet’s demise is more important than joining Prophet’s funeral”.
Syedna Ali performed Prophet’s (PBUH) funeral prayers & was laid
to rest by his only family members.

It was further proved by the above mentioned books that after

coming back from the Bani-Saqeefah, Abu-Baker as chosen
Khalifah, forfeited the garden of FID’K owned by the Prophet’s
daughter Syeda Fatima (SA). When Umer bin Al-khattab came to
know that Syedna Ali had refused to follow (Baiyat) Abu-Baker as
Khalifah then he attacked Syedna Ali’s house, burned & broke the
door (which fell on Syeda Fatima & her child inside her body was
killed who was named Mohsin later on) & pulled Syedna Ali out,
asked him to follow the chosen Khalifah Abu-Bak’r.

The above mentioned incidents proved the converted Muslim about

the origin of two sects in Islam at that time. One started from the
Prophet’s (PBUH) bed & other from Bani-Saqeefah. These two
were divided into 72 by the battles of Jamal, Sifeen, Karbala & so
one----- but it is easy to find the only right path from the present of
two sects or origin of second in stead of 72 now-a-days.

The above mentioned Incident was the origin of second sect in

Islam & diversion from the right path. The Holy Qur’an proves the
right path in Sura Al-Imran verse 61; This verse is a reference to the
historic Mubahila or the Spiritual Contest with the Christians of
Najran when the Holy Prophet declared the personnel of his Ahlul-
Bait (AS) as the only Right Path:

61- Say, (O our Apostle Mohammed !) (unto them) come ye, let us
summon our sons. And (ye summon) your sons, and (we summon)
our women, and (ye) your women, and (we summon) our selves
and (ye) your selves and then let us invoke & lay the curse of God
on the liars!”

Let us read the documentary from the Holy Qur’an of the above
mentioned verse, translated by Sheikh Mahmoodul Hasan,
Documentary by Shabbir Ahmed Osmani, printed by Malik Fahad
printing complex, Saudi Arabia in 1989:

“It was a spiritual context between Prophet & Head of Christians of

Najran who (Christians) believed that Jesus Christ was son of God.
Curse of God was decided on liars. Prophet took out with his
daughter Fatima, Ali, Hasan & Hussein. When the head of Christian
named “laat” looked at Prophet’s family members from distance,
started shouting “ such lights are coming out from their faces
(Ahlul-Bait) if they order these mountains to leave their places, they
(mountains) will obey” He warned his followers not to invoke with
them “otherwise no Christian will be left safe on earth by their
curse. They decided to withdraw, promised to pay annual tax as fine
& went back.

The above mentioned documentary is mentioned by all schools of

Islamic thoughts. The Christians of Najran realized & did not
confront but Alas! Few Muslims could not…….& their followers
have still been killing the followers of Ahlul-Bait (AS).

The Holy Qur’an further says in Sura Al-Imran verse:

103- And hold fast to the cord of God All together, & be not
divided (among yourselves).

The cord of God is described by the Holy Prophet, The Holy Qur’an
& Ahlul-Bait “ should ye hold fast to these two, never never will ye
get astray & never will these two be separated from each-other”

“(The Holy Prophet) who spoke nothing but the revelation from
God” said “ I leave behind me amidst you two great things, the
Book of God (The Holy Qur’an) & my Ahlul-Bait; should ye be
attached to these two, never never shall ye get astray after me, for
verily these two will never be separated from each other until they
meet at the spring (of Kauthar)”
(Ref > Tafir-e-Kabir, Tafir-e-Durre-Manthur, & other---)

The newly converted Muslim asked only one question from Wahabi
scholar first about the above mentioned incident. He was told that
Umer bin Al-Khattab was right in his answer to Prophet (PBUH)
because he never saw Prophet (PBUH) reading or writing. But when
he contacted Sunni scholar, who hesitated to answer & said “ We
can not say who was wrong or lost his senses. If we say Syedna
Umer was wrong then he is responsible of all the misguidance,
warned by the Prophet (PBUH) . We can not also say that our
Prophet (PBUH) was wrong”. The newly converted Muslim was not
satisfied & contacted a Shia scholar. he was made clear in the lights
of the verses of the Holy Qur’an & Prophet’(PBUH) miracles that It
was obligatory for Umer bin Al-Khattab to obey Prophet (PBUH).

The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) said: O' Fatimah! Every eye shall be
weeping on the Day of Judgment except the eye which has shed
tears over the tragedy of Husain (A.S.) for surely, that eye shall be
laughing and shall be given the glad tidings of the bounties and
comforts of Paradise. (Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 44 pg. 193)

The Famous Verse of the Holy Qur’an “Qul Laa-asalokum Alaihey

Ajran Illal Mawaddatah Fil Qurba” (Prophet>tell them (People)
Allah does not ask (need) anything except the extreme love for
Prophet’s Ahlul-Bait.

May Allah bring peace in Iraq, Pakistan, Palestine & unity among
Muslims but those who are killing Shias in Iraq & Pak, follow the
Sunnah of their leader who attacked on the Prophet (SAW)’s mind
first then his daughter Sayeda Zahra’s (SA) house. If someone made
mistake as a human then his mistake should not be followed to
divide Islam. The above mentioned thorns of history are more fatal
than the bullets, they fire on Shias. There is no concept of terrorism
in Islam, neither Prophet (SAW) killed or attacked on a single
innocent human / creature nor twelve Imams in their whole lives.
After studying the history of Islam a student can easily find out the
fact that they ( Ahlul-Bait & Imams) were in fact the victims of
terrorism. True Islam was spread with morality not sword.
World leaders are still unable to find the definition of “Terrorism”
which can be defined in simple words “ A attack on an innocent
with intension to hurt or kill him for the sake of selfishness called
Terrorism” Islam prefers forgiveness in stead of revenge. The
famous verse of the Holy Qur’an. “Innallaha Ya Maroo Bil Adle
Wal-Ahsaan” ( Allah orders (prefers) you to make Justice with

Imam Ali (AS) said:

“Live amongst people in such a manner that if you die they weep
over you and if you are alive they crave for your company”. “If you
overpower your enemy then pardon him by way of thankfulness to
Allah for being able to subdue him”.

(May Allah Mighty Allah show the 71 sects of Islam the right path
leads to Heaven, unity among Muslims, keep us & our coming
generations safe from the path of terrorists, oppressors, enemies of
Islam & enemies of Ahlul-Bait (AS) (Aameen) Written by
