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.

: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.

My answer would be, "The Prophet (saw) told us he is leaving behind the Quran and the AhlulBayt. I held on to both very tightly and I was united with all those who held on to them as well."

Eight - Wahhabism: These positions are dominated by the Western reigning regimes, governments that are not Muslims at all, let alone Shiites or Sunnis. Such as the "system of thought and belief of Freemasons and Zionism" in the theoretical aspect - and "the system of domination led by Britain and then America" in the political and practical aspect. Their greed to the great wealth of the Muslim countries (misleadingly referred to as the Middle East) had no sense and, after the Ottoman rule was deviating and tumbling, intensified, and now it has doubled with the victories they have gained. Obviously, even the notion of the least success in domination, on the nation that constitutes almost a quarter of the world's people and all of which has a theoretical and practical belief in one God, Prophet, book, qibla, religion, and the Hereafter, did not go to any government. The only solution was to intensify the disagreement and disintegration of Muslim nations. Britain (again trying to call it the "UK") was the superpower of the world and had colonized and exploited more than half of the world, but it could not easily dominate the Muslim world, thus undermining the Islamic world, The breakdown of the sovereignty of the Islamic countries, the creation of Israel in the heart of the so-called Middle East, and ... did not undermine and do not take any action, trick, and idiocy. Of course, the most effective strategy is the intensification of the difference and the most effective weapon, the same as the creation of religious and even ethnic conflicts. . Hence, the importance and priority of the "soft war" were not overlooked, while intensifying the long-standing differences between Shiites and Sunnis, sent Sayyid Bab and Baha to Iran (the Shia Center), after the Imam's time, the announcement of the end of Islam and the beginning of a new religion He sent Gholam Ahmad Ghadiani to Pakistan and India with the same claim ... And, in order to dominate the Sunni world, which was mainly the Arab world, Abdul Wahab was sent to the land of Hejaz and the heart of Islam (Mecca and Medina), and between him and The Saudi government united and they fought militarily militant Sunnis and Shiites in Saudi Arabia and worked worse than ISIL today and made the government its own ; From then on, they claimed the Wahhabi religion to become religious and faithful, and, in order to attract the majority of Muslims, they considered themselves to be Sunni (apparently they could not read the Shi'a), and then with financial and political support And the British and American weapons and espionage, on the one hand, and the acquisition of Saudi oil wealth on the other, and ..., promote and promote their religion, as well as financial affiliation, and the domination of the jargon called "Wahhabism" in Between the Sunnis and now they see it with the Islamic world (whether Shiites or Sunni); as far as the official and open ally and the executive arm inside Britain, America, Israel and international Zionism in the Muslim world, and the Masonic sign one after the other, proudly hung on the neck. Result: So first, it became clear that the differences between "Shi'a and Sunni", not at first, not in continuity, were not limited to religious or jurisprudential differences, but were entirely political. If a Muslim or even non-Muslims study theoretical controversies in beliefs and judgments in the four Sunni religions (Hanafi, Shafi'i, Hanbali, and Maliki), they realize that if there is not more than Shiite and Sunni differences, there is less. Secondly, it became clear that the causes of tendencies are not necessarily based on reason and reasoning, and Qur'anic and Islamic sciences and traditions and hadiths, but there are hundreds and thousands of other causes, the ultimate of which is Love of the world and the weakness of faith in the hereafter. Imam Hussein (peace be upon him) then said: "Religion is on tongue, and the religious is low." Thirdly, it became clear that neither Shi'a nor Sunnis should, as it should be, not refer to sources and books, scholars, and jurisprudents, as the misconceptions and superstitions are abundant in the followers of both factions and, therefore, more captured Joys and function flow. Is not this the case in most of the Shiite people in our country, and the various and sometimes conflicting atmosphere and currents do not take people there? Are all really subject to Shiite jurisprudence and Velayat-e Faqih ?! Now, is it expected that if the Hadith has been faithfully included in the Sunnite reference book or in other books, it has come to an end, all Sunnis suddenly stop and say: "According to our own books and hadiths Inserted in it, do we accept Shi'ism ?! "Hayat! The spirit of brotherhood As explained, the issue is not theoretical dispute, but the elimination of unity, decomposition and subjection to the Muslims of the world (of any religion) is the main object of our enemies, while Muslims with all their differences have a common revelation book in which He said: "Enma Almouinon the Akhvah - All believers are all brothers, Hajjarat, 10" So if they would have considered the same verse, believed and acted, it was enough for them.

Althought Prophet (pbu) predicted that his nation will be separate to 73 sects that only one of these sects is on true way thus four Sunni school of thoughts started 100 years after Prophet(pbu)  & head of them Abuhanifa (ra) was student of Imam Sadiq (as) it is more reasonable that shia Islam is the true sect.

but now in social media the other sect specially Wahabists couldn’t reject reasons of shia Islam now call it fairytales of Shias as in Holy Quran Unbelievers  said at time of prophet (pbu) that Quran are fairy tales from prophet(pbu) 

وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَسْتَمِعُ إِلَيْكَ ۖ وَجَعَلْنَا عَلَىٰ قُلُوبِهِمْ أَكِنَّةً أَن يَفْقَهُوهُ وَفِي آذَانِهِمْ وَقْرًا ۚ وَإِن يَرَوْا كُلَّ آيَةٍ لَّا يُؤْمِنُوا بِهَا ۚ حَتَّىٰ إِذَا جَاءُوكَ يُجَادِلُونَكَ يَقُولُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا إِنْ هَـٰذَا إِلَّا أَسَاطِيرُ الْأَوَّلِينَ ﴿ 

الانعام ۲۵

And of them is he who hearkens to you, and We have cast veils over their hearts lest they understand it and a heaviness into their ears; and even if they see every sign they will not believe in it; so much so that when they come to you they only dispute with you; those who disbelieve say: This is naught but the stories of the ancients. (25)

Wa Aleikum Salaam,

How did I even cause annoyance? If God ask you a question of why were you disunited, then it clearly mean you were disunited in the world, and you need just tell the truth. This is also in Qur'an when Angels ask Question to disbelievers, they will answer we were not among those who prayed, those who did not take messenger guidance etc.

Well, theologically there is nothing wrong in being disunited. I'm pretty sure my answer will be "I held on to the Quran and the Ahlulbayt (as)".

Otherwise, I love all my Muslims brothers and sisters regardless of their difference in opinion.

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

Read from verse # 100, which also starts from "o you who believe" & commanding us not to obey ahlul kitab & then mentions the consequence, then 101 which says that the one who holds fast to Allah (s.w.t) is guided to the right path. Verse 103 introduces the "hablilaal", you need to see the text of both 101 & 103 carefully. 

One says "wa man ya'tasim billahe" while the other says "wa'tasemu be hablillahe jami'aa". Holding fast to Allah is not for everyone while holding fast to hablillah is for everyone because of the word "jami'aa" (all together). It is the hablillah which at one end connects with Allah (ya'tasim billah) and on the other end it is among us (there are just two ends of a rope).

We need to identify and hold fast that hablillah. Quran is hablillah but it is not alone. Now see the phrase "ya'tasim billahe faqad hudiya ila siratim-mustaqeem", so the hablillah must be representing the "guided ones". Quran is not the guided one rather it is a guide for muttaqeen (hudan lil muttaqeen).

We find the existence of these guided ones in Quran:

Surah Al-Baqara, Verse 157:
أُولَٰئِكَ عَلَيْهِمْ صَلَوَاتٌ مِّن رَّبِّهِمْ وَرَحْمَةٌ وَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْمُهْتَدُونَ

Those are they on whom are blessings and mercy from their Lord, and those are the followers of the right course.
(English - Shakir)

There are many verses infact, some introduces these guided ones as "Sabireen", "Sadiqeen" and some introduces them as "Tahireen".

So my brother, once you get to these people & hold fast to them as these blessed personalities are the "hablillah" and Allah's command is to hold fast to them, why would Allah ask you about division?

19 hours ago, justAnothermuslim said:

kindly share with me what would be your answer, were you asked such a question.

Assuming that I am not holding fast the "hablillah", then there will be no answer to this question except to accept my wrong doing & mistake. That's why I have referred you the verse 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)
