In the Name of All?h, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Shaykh ‘Abd al-?Az?z ibn B?z
(???? ????) said:
Without a doubt, this division causes pain to every Muslim. It is mandatory upon the Muslims to gather upon the truth and to work together upon goodness and piety; however, All?h decreed the division of the Ummah due to His great wisdom and praiseworthy objectives, for which He should be praised. No one knows its details except Him. Differentiating His awliy?’ [i.e friends] from His enemies and differentiating those who exert themselves to seek the truth from those who turn away from it, following their desires, are from those objectives.
