Answer to your question:assalam alequm

We are on the deen that was followed by the Messenger of Allah (saws),  so if(saws) he was a Shia,  we are Shias!  If he(saw) was a Sunni we are Sunnis!  If he(saws) was a Dawoodi Bohra,  we are Dawoodi Bohras!!"   i want to know that is prophet mohammed said the following or not (mafhoom) in cristian 71 firka, and in jews (yahood) 72 and  in my ummath 73 firka will be made and only one firka will go in paradise, sahaba asked which one will go, he (pbuh) said who followed me and my companian,   also i hear from ulama that majority of the ummath will be on correct path of prophet mohammed (pbuh) and others will few, so the majority is alhumdulillah sunni, sunni means to follow prophet mohammed (pbuh) and also to follow sahabas, because sahabas are the very closed to prophet mohammed (pbuh) and they understand the islam and from them the deen came to us, shias are thouse who follow hazrat ali (ra) shia said hazrat ali is the prophet of allah, they said by mistake wahi came to prophet mohammed (pbuh) but actuallay it was hazrat ali (na uz billah, astagfirullah) you found the correct path, but you must be a sunni, (i am sorry to say like this, if some thing hert ur heart i will appologize)   prophet mohammed (pbuh) appointed one sahabi as governor (to some one place) and he (pbuh) asked that sahabi how you will justify, sahabi said first i will see in quran if not get i will see in hadith if not get I will do ijtema e ummath if not get  i will do qiyas, so these are four things in islam to get any reply.

Answer:

 

Give a name to faith

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Comment: my heart is not satify with the following paragraph which you sent.


"We, as true muslims,  claim to be from no sects whatsoever.   We are muslims,  just us our Prophet Mohamed (saws) was a muslim.   There is nobody who can claim that Prophet Mohamed (saws) was a Sunni,  a Shia,  a Ismaili, a Hanafi,  a Malki,  a Dawoodi Bohra, or anything else.   The Messenger of Allah (saws) was a muslim and we want to follow the exact same deen that he (saws) followed.    His(saws)  life was based on the principles of the Holy Quran and he (saws) implemented every word of guidance from the Holy Quran in his (saws) own life.    That is the deen of Islam we want to follow. We are on the deen that was followed by the Messenger of Allah (saws),  so if(saws) he was a Shia,  we are Shias!  If he(saw) was a Sunni we are Sunnis!  If he(saws) was a Dawoodi Bohra,  we are Dawoodi Bohras!!"

My beloved brother, if you could identify and clarify which part of the paragraph your heart is not satisfied with, we would be more than happy to clarify our position.

What we mean in the above paragraph is that we do not belong to any sect or group made by human beings, but rather that we belong to the community of muslims. We belong to the same community and deen which was practiced by Prophet Mohamed (saws), his noble ahle-bayt, his noble family and his noble companions. And there is no doubt that they were all muslims, which is exactly what we want to be.

 

Your Question: i want to know that is prophet mohammed said the following or not (mafhoom) in cristian 71 firka, and in jews (yahood) 72 and  in my ummath 73 firka will be made and only one firka will go in paradise, sahaba asked which one will go, he (pbuh) said who followed me and my companian

The exact words of the hadith which you wish to quote are :

 

Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 171 Narrated byAbdullah ibn Amr

Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said: There will befall my Ummah exactly (all those) evils which befell the people of Isra'il, so much so that if there was one amongst them who openly committed fornication with his mother there will be among my Ummah one who will do that, and if the people of Isra'il were fragmented into seventy-two sects my Ummah will be fragmented into seventy-three sects. All of them will be in Hell Fire except one sect. They (the Companions) said: Allah's Messenger, which is that? Whereupon he said: It is one to which I, and my companions, belong.

 

Your Comment: also i hear from ulama that majority of the ummath will be on correct path of prophet mohammed (pbuh) and others will few, so the majority is alhumdulillah sunni,

The truth is brother, we should avoid giving ourselves man-made names like Shias, Sunnis, Ismaelis, etc. We must work to unite all the believers into one community, and that community is the Ummah of Muslims. If you read the above words of wisdom from the Messenger of Allah (saws), he did not mention the name of the sect, but rather he said those who follow his way and the way of his noble companions, are the ones who will be saved from the Hell Fire. And there is absolutely no doubt that the Messenger (saws) and his noble companions were all muslims.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 23 Surah Al-Muminun verse 52:And this Ummah of yours is one Ummah, and I (Allah) am your Lord, so fear Me alone!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verse 77-78:O you who have believed, do rukooh (bow down) and do sajdah (prostration), and worship your Lord Allah Alone, and do righteous deeds: it may be that you attain true success! Exert your utmost for the cause of Allah, as one should. He has chosen you for His service, and has not laid on you any hardship in your religion. Therefore, be steadfast in the religion of your father Abraham. Allah had named you muslims before this, and has named you (muslims) in this Quran also, so that the Messenger may be a witness in regard to you, and you may be witnesses in regard to the rest of mankind.

 

Your Comment: sunni means to follow prophet mohammed (pbuh) and also to follow sahabas, because sahabas are the very closed to prophet mohammed (pbuh) and they understand the islam and from them the deen came to us. Shias are thouse who follow hazrat ali (ra) shia said hazrat ali is the prophet of allah, they said by mistake wahi came to prophet mohammed (pbuh) but actuallay it was hazrat ali (na uz billah, astagfirullah)

Again, my beloved and respected brother, I urge you not to break this deen and Ummah of Islam into man-made sects like Sunnis, Shias, etc. We all want to be on the deen that was brought by Prophet Mohamed (saws), and he did not belong to any sect. As muslims, it is our duty to follow and obey Allah and His Messenger (saws); and all those believers who do so are muslims. Not Sunnis, not shias; but muslims!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imran verse 31-32:O Prophet, tell the people, If you sincerely love Allah, follow me. Then Allah will love you and forgive you your sins, for He is All Forgiving, All Merciful. Also say to them, Obey Allah and His Messenger. And if, in spite of this, they do not accept your invitation, warn them that Allah does not love those, who refuse to obey Him and His Messenger.

 

Your Comment: you found the correct path, but you must be a sunni, (i am sorry to say like this, if some thing hert ur heart i will appologize)

Again, we reteriate our position, that we do not belong to any sect of Islam, which are nothing but the inventions of man himself. We belong to the community and Ummah of the Muslims.

 

Your Comment: prophet mohammed (pbuh) appointed one sahabi as governor (to some one place) and he (pbuh) asked that sahabi how you will justify, sahabi said first i will see in quran if not get i will see in hadith if not get I will do ijtema e ummath if not get  i will do qiyas, so these are four things in islam to get any reply.

I have not come across the above hadith, although it is the acceptable principle of the muslim scholars. If you could be kind enough to give us the reference of the above hadith you have quoted, we could comment on it.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
