Unity

Man in his nature is a social  being that can’t carry out his substantial needs from food and water , to clothing and protection, except by cooperating with others through positive interaction with others and with what his rational predecessors has left him from knowledge and monotheistic morals. Moreover, since man is the only being in this existence that owns mind, freedom and ability to create and capable to develop from one stage to another which is higher in knowledge , then it would be necessary for his mind to interact with the minds of others by studying, improving and benefiting  to come out with the creativity and the progress  wanted. That’s why individual happiness is considered a part of the group’s happiness and the dignity of the individual is part of the dignity of the group, and so is the misery and the compulsory retreat to the rock bottom.

Societies and groups are like the seas ruled by the principle of id and flow . If the groups lived the id of loving, its vision, hopes, dreams and accomplishments would unite, combine and solidarize. Then there would be civilization and positive interaction. And if these groups lived in the flow of hatred, they would be parted and scuttled and interests repulsed and thoughts and visions collided which leads to default and restrictions and fanatic movements and civil wars and the collapse of what was built and the rupture of what was united and the scattering of what was created .

Be He exalted said in His Holy Book: Restore to God’s rope all of you and don’t be parted. And He said: Don’t be from the polytheist and from those who divided their religion and became sects, each party happy with what it has. God to whom be ascribed all perfection and majesty said: You have nothing to do with those who divided their religion and became sects.

Isn’t this wholly talk enough for the rational to understand that God created the beings to know Him and who knew Him respects the human inside himself and the humanity of others. There was those who craved their rules on the essence mirrors of all souls, some refined their soul’s mirror by well believing and the pure virtues, subsequently the light of truth rises in his soul’s mirror ,and some suppressed his mirror by polytheism ,lying and lust ,so the lights of the truth disappears as if it didn’t exist at all.That is why there is no excuse for anyone to say that he doesn’t know the right because it is stamped in the essence of our souls and it’s nearer to us then the jugular vein.

 The Holy prophet (God’s blessing and peace be upon him) said: The believer to another believer is like a building crammed drag another .He also said: you should stay in a group because the wolf attacks only the straying sheep. He also said believers in their harmony; mercy and compassion are like the body that if it complains from an organ the whole body collapses from staying up and fever.

Isn’t all this guidance and directing enough to know that the hand of God is above all and the united group is right and good, won’t be defeated by God’s assistance. As for the union on evil and assault, its fanaticism in itself and it’s one of the most despised vice in the eyes of God and people. It was said in a sermon for a group of believers: “Beware from dealing with each other in hypocrisy, because hypocrisy is the door of disperse and separation.

Maen Ibn Zayed said advising his children:

Be united my sons if trouble be fell on you and never be separated to individuals. It is hard to break a bunch of sticks while it is easy to break one stick at a time.

Maarouf El-Risafi said:

A nation that comes to live unarmed with my weapons of cooperation and unity will be disappointed.  Collaborating on kindness and unity to uplift the world of truth, is by my life, the pilgrimage of the white group and its shelter is paradise and absolute dazzling of dignity and happiness.

Anis Al Makdisy said: I wish my country loftiness and self-governing and organized living, but where is all of that from a country that refuses everything but separation and splitting.

If God distinguished humans with the bless of meditating and thinking, then he made him a mean to bring joy to the soul and stability  with certain peace of mind. And if human knows through tranquility and meditating thinks that God is  near to him than the aorta, sitting on the throne of the heart of believers, lightening what is between its wing, then how could man be stubborn and looks himself in the complied darkness. Isn’t that taunting human by himself for God didn’t create the beings in vain but most people don’t comprehend this.
