Disunited with whom?

Have you seen verse 3:105?

Surah Aal-e-Imran, Verse 105:
وَلَا تَكُونُوا كَالَّذِينَ تَفَرَّقُوا وَاخْتَلَفُوا مِن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءَهُمُ الْبَيِّنَاتُ وَأُولَٰئِكَ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ

And be not like those who became divided and disagreed after clear arguments had come to them, and these it is that shall have a grievous chastisement.
(English - Shakir)

:bismillah:

Surah Aal-e-Imran, Verse 103:
وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا وَاذْكُرُوا نِعْمَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ كُنتُمْ أَعْدَاءً فَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِكُمْ فَأَصْبَحْتُم بِنِعْمَتِهِ إِخْوَانًا وَكُنتُمْ عَلَىٰ شَفَا حُفْرَةٍ مِّنَ النَّارِ فَأَنقَذَكُم مِّنْهَا كَذَٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ آيَاتِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُونَ

And hold fast by the covenant of Allah all together and be not disunited, and remember the favor of Allah on you when you were enemies, then He united your hearts so by His favor you became brethren; and you were on the brink of a pit of fire, then He saved you from it, thus does Allah make clear to you His communications that you may follow the right way.
(English - Shakir)

Unfortunately, Muslims differs in the ta'veel of "Hablillah". 

Here is some text from tafseer of Aaqa Poya:

Hold fast, all of you together, to the cord of Allah"-gives a mental impression that a rope is hanging from the heaven so that those who are lying down on the ground (earth) may climb up, by holding it, in the presence of the Lord to seek His nearness.

Abu Sa-id Khudri reports that he heard the Holy Prophet saying:

I leave behind me, among you, two ropes. If my people hold fast to these two ropes, after me, they shall not go astray. They are the book of Allah, hung from the heaven unto the earth, and my Ahl ul Bayt. One of them is greater than the other. Be it known that these two shall never be separated from each other; and joined together, they shall meet me at the spring of Kawthar.

(Tafsir Kabir and Durr al Manthur) The other similar declaration of the Holy Prophet, known as hadith al thaqalayn, has been mentioned on page 6.

The Holy Prophet has also said:

My Ahl ul Bayt, among you, are like the ark of Nuh. He who sails on it will be safe, but he who holds back shall perish.

There are several traditions of the Holy Prophet, mentioned on page 5 and 6, which confirm, beyond doubt, that Muhammad and ali Muhammad were the natiq Quran and the revealed book of Allah is the samit Quran (see commentary of al Baqarah: 2).

The Holy Prophet has said:

Verily the Quran has been revealed in seven letters. There is no letter which has not an evident and a latent meaning; and verily Ali knows the evident as well as the latent.

(Itiqan-Sahih Bukhari)

Also refer to urwatil wuthqa in al Baqarah: 256.

The holding fast to the book of Allah and "Muhammad and ali Muhammad" means total attachment with and devotion to them because all good generates from this act which enables man to rise upward and reach nearness to Allah. The life of the Holy Prophet and his Ahl ul Bayt is the best example of the teachings of the Quran.

"Do not become disunited"-Those who rely on and make use of theories and methods formulated and put in practice by mortal men, by avoiding or neglecting the commandments of Allah and the teachings of the Holy Prophet and his Ahl ul Bayt, are bound to go astray and create discord and disagreement among the united community of the believers.

This sentence warns the Muslims not to misinterpret the verses of the Quran or have doubts about the authority of the Holy Prophet and his Ahl ul Bayt to explain the true meanings of the word of Allah, because these two are the inseparably interwoven cord of Allah; else they will be divided into several sects. So to remain on the right path shown by the Holy Prophet follow him and his Ahl ul Bayt in letter and spirit.

The Imams are the 'strong rope' and 'firmest handle'

The Purified Imams (a.s.) are the Hablul Mateen (strong rope) and Urwatul Wuthqa (firmest handle)

And there are many Quranic verses on this topic.

First verse:

فَمَنْ يَكْفُرْ بِالطَّاغُوتِ وَيُؤْمِنْ بِاللَّهِ فَقَدْ اسْتَمْسَكَ بِالْعُرْوَةِ الْوُثْقَى لَا انفِصَامَ لَهَا وَاللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ.

…whoever disbelieves in the Shaitan and believes in Allah he indeed has laid hold on the firmest handle, which shall not break off, and Allah is Hearing, Knowing. (Surah Baqarah 2:256)

Kulaini has narrated from Imam Sadiq (a.s.) that ‘Urwatul Wuthqa’ refers to the faithful man. And in another tradition he says that ‘Urwatul Wuthqa’ is to bring faith on only one God, Who has no partner.

There is a tradition in Mahasin by the same Imam that ‘Urwatul Wuthqa’ means monotheism and Ibne Shahr Aashob has narrated from Imam Baqir (a.s.) that ‘Urwatul Wuthqa’ is the love of we Ahlul Bayt (a.s.) and in Uyoon Akhbar Ridha there is a tradition from the same Hazrat that the Holy Prophet (S) said that those who want to board the ship of salvation and get attached to ‘Urwatul Wuthqa’ and ‘Hablul matin’ hold of Allah, should after me befriend Ali and be inimical to his enemies and follow the Imams from his progeny.

Also from the same Hazrat it is narrated that the Holy Prophet (S) said that those who want to hold ‘Urwatul Wuthqa’, should love Ali and my Ahlul Bayt.

Also there is a tradition that the Holy Prophet (S) said: Those who follow the Imams from the progeny of Imam Husain (a.s.) then without any doubt they have followed Allah and those who disobey them are those who have disobeyed Allah. They are ‘Urwatul Wuthqa’ and they are Wasilah (medium) for the people to reach Allah.

There is a tradition in Tawheed that Amirul Momineen (a.s.) said that I am ‘Hablullah-al-Matin’ and I am ‘Urwatul Wuthqa’.

There is a tradition in Kamaluddeen that Imam Ridha (a.s.) said: We are the Hujjat (proof) of Allah on the people and we are the ‘words of piety’ and ‘Urwatul Wuthqa’.

Second verse:

وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا.

And hold fast by the covenant (rope) of Allah (Hablillah) all together and be not disunited… 3:103

Third verse:

ضُرِبَتْ عَلَيْهِمْ الذِّلَّةُ أَيْنَ مَا ثُقِفُوا إِلَّا بِحَبْلٍ مِنْ اللَّهِ.

Abasement is made to cleave to them wherever they are found, except under a covenant with Allah… (Surah Ale-Imran 3:112)

Many of the traditionists have said that it means those who remain steadfast on the promise of Allah are protected.

There is a tradition from Ayyashi that Imam Moosa Kazim (a.s.) said regarding the verse:

And hold fast by the covenant (rope) of Allah all together and be not disunited… (Surah Ale-Imran 3:103)

That Ali Ibne Abi Talib is ‘hablulallah matin’. It means the tight rope of Allah.

Another tradition from Imam Baqir (a.s.) says that the progeny of the Holy Prophet (S) is the rope of Allah, for whom Allah has commanded in this verse.

Also there is a tradition from Imam Sadiq (a.s.) that he said: We are the rope of Allah.

Ali Ibne Ibrahim has narrated that ‘Hablullah’ means the Oneness (Tawheed) of Allah and the Mastership (Wilayat) of Ahlul Bayt (a.s.).

Also there is a saying of Imam Baqir (a.s.) on the verse:

and be not disunited… (Surah Ale-Imran 3:103)

The Imam said that Allah was knowing that this nation would be separated from its Prophet and they will have difference with him. That is why he stopped them from the difference as the nation which was before them was prohibited. Therefore they were commanded that they should remain united on the Wilayat of Muhammad and his Progeny and should not disunite.

i found this in fadhail ush-shia page 2/83, Chapter 1:

My father (d) related to us from Abdullah bin al-Hussein al-Mueddib from Ahmed bin Ali al-Isfahani from Mohammed bin Aslam at-Tusi from Abu Rajaa from Hemmad bin Zaid from Abdirrahman as-Sarraj from Nafii that Ibn Omar said: When we asked him about Ali bin Abi

Talib, the Prophet (s) was angry and said:

[note: i did not quote the earlier portion, only the later part of the narration]

Whoever loves the family of Mohammed will be saved from the Judgment, the Balance, and the Path.

Whoever dies on the love for the family of Mohammed, I guarantee for him a place in Paradise with the prophets.[6]

 

so i guess, if you are a shia, that question is irrelevant to you, Insha Allah.

since the verse [3:102] is addressing "O you who believe...", i guess this verse is referring to the same people.

We were not holding to the wilayah of the Ahlulbait (as) nor we were among those who encourage stability in Ummah, but instead we were those who caused fitnah between muslims.
