What is Firqa or Sect..?

Recommended Posts

We are the followers of religion called Islam. Those who believe in Allah and his Prophet is called as Muslim. You can call yourself a muslim if you believe in them. However, we see that after Holy Prophet (sawa), some people usurped the caliphate from his rightful candidate. Hence People got divided into two sects: those who believe in Allah, His Prophet (sawa) and Imam Ali (a.s.) and other those that believed in Allah, his Prophet (sawa) and Abu Bakar. The matter of two sect continued until other sects came into existence like nusairi (believed Imam Ali (a.s.) as God), kaisani (believed Mohammad e Hanafiya as their Imam after Imam Hussain (a.s.)), Ismaili, Bohra,  etc, etc. 

Among these few sects got extinct by time and other remains. When we see our beliefs, we'll come to know to which sect/firqa we belong. Calling yourself Muslim is not enough at all. Holy Prophet (sawa) has already prophesied that my ummah will be divided into 73 sects, from which 1 will go to jannat. What the Prophet of Allah has said is bound to happen. There will be sect and firqa, we have to do research and find the correct one (no blind faith allowed).

Regarding title we all are Muslims but regarding believing to certain beliefs and acting upon certain jurisprudential deeds, there is no way unless we choose one firqa/sect.

With Duas.

    • Salaam Alaykum Brother Know that Allah loves you, otherwise he wouldn't put this thought into your mind. Somebody asked Imam Sadegh that I do a sin over and over again and every single time I feel ashamed of myself. Imam Sadegh said:" Know that Allah loves you so much that he put this feeling into your mind". Brother it's very hard and I understand it. I know how you feel whenever you need it. Try to spend more time with your family and try to find religious friends. They help you in not thinking about your desires. When you said you can avoid doing that for one or two week, I said this guy can avoid doing that forever. My brother,  you are young. Please please please don't pollute your clear heart with these rudimentary instantaneous satisfactions. You deserve more than that. If you are in the position of having a simple marriage, talk with your dad. If not, talk with your dad to find a good religious girl for you and do Mutah till you find a job and change it to permanent marriage. Allah bless you
    • Salam  do u find yourself hiding problems and pain so you won’t bother those around you ?
    • Inshallah let this evil regime consume itself and fall into more serious infighting.  They single handledly responsible for the majority of violent deaths that our Ummah has suffered since 1979. They have disrespected our Prophet and his family. they have both directly tortured and maimed our brothers and sisters in the Gulf and beyond. To see them attacking each other makes one feel that our prayers are being answered and Allah has finally decided to punish these modern day pharaohs.
