The way to achieve Muslim unity

Q 5: How can we achieve Muslim unity within the Islamic world of today when there are daily crimes committed by Muslims against their Muslim brothers? (Part No. 2; Page No. 246) For example, there is daily news about the inner struggle taking place inside the Palestine Liberation Organization, the problems between Iraq and Iran, in addition to other conflicts in the rest of our disunited Arab Ummah (nation) which agreed not to agree on anything.

A: Muslim unity can be achieved by adhering to the principles which achieved unity during the lifetime of the Prophet (peace be upon him). These principles are adhering to the correct ‘Aqidah (creed), sincere Iman (belief), acting on the teachings of the Qur’an and the Sunnah of our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), calling to Islam and enduring hardships for its sake.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
