KUALA TERENGGANU - The Muslim community is reminded not to continue harbouring enmity despite differing viewpoints and thoughts on a particular matter.

This reminder was conveyed through the Friday sermon titled 'Islam preserves peace and kinship by the Terengganu Department of Islamic Affairs (JHEAT).

"Today, even though we differ in our perspectives and thoughts on certain matters, maintaining the brotherhood of Islam takes precedence.

"Let not the differences in views and beliefs persist to the extent that they lead to never-ending hostility and conflict," explained the text of the sermon.

As followers of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), it is essential to embody every virtue and behaviour taught by the Messenger of Allah, including his actions in reconciling between the Aus and Khazraj tribes, which underscores the importance of upholding unity among fellow Muslims, the sermon said.

"Any malicious elements and influence from the enemies of Islam should be earnestly repelled from infiltrating the Muslim community.

"They know that as long as the Muslim ummah remains united, they will be unable to undermine the monotheistic faith (tauhid) and control the leadership of the state," it stated.

Hence, it emphasised that the downfall of the Ottoman Caliphate should serve as a lesson to the Muslim community, as internal conflicts within Turkish society contributed to the fall of the caliphate.

"With the end of the Ottoman Caliphate, the Muslim ummah no longer had a source of reliance except themselves in the small countries where they resided, each of them seeking to protect their own interests, making it easy for enemies to gain control," it explained.

According to the sermon, the enemies of Islam desire that Muslims remain in constant dispute, diverting their attention away from religion, nationality, and the state, whereas the security and well-being of the nation are invaluable blessings bestowed by Allah.

"Indeed, every action of ours is recorded by the angels. Consequently, let us sow the seeds of unity and maintain kinship among fellow Muslims so that we may attain the acceptance of Allah in this world and the hereafter," it concluded.
