Friday sermon (1016): No for splitting Muslems word.
   
 
 
In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Most Merciful  
 

What should Muslim do towards Muslim's current disturbing situation?

Dear brothers, the subject being discussed this month is still fresh, but what should the Muslim do in such a situation? 

1st item: No fragmenting word should be said among Muslims: 

The first item as I see it, and I hope I am right, is avoiding saying any word that might divide Muslims, widen the gap among them, fragment them or tear up their unity. Thus, due to your loyalty, to your keenness on keeping this Ummah united, to your awareness that the Muslims' enemy is one, you should support his Ummah.     

We should all be one entity to face this enemy. So, due to your belonging to this Ummah- no matter how you view it or value it- to your faith, to your religion, to your keenness on this Ummah's safety, unity, victory from Allah, you should avoid saying any word to any one whether in public or private that may destroy Ummah's unity, it may fragment her or it may divide her rows. 

This is the first point that I would like to discuss in this Khutbah. Thus, based on your religion, wisdom and belonging to your Ummah you should say things that unite us since all of us are in the same situation.             

The trump card of enemies is sectarianism:  

Dear brothers, you should know for certain, and I stress this fact, our enemies have a trump card, and I hope that it is the only one, which is to provoke sectarian strife. However, because of our deep awareness, sincerity, concern for our safety, and keened on achieving victory, we can defeat them by destroying this card.  

I repeat, the trump card in the hands of our enemies is provoking sectarian strife, and you may consider destroying it, good policy, wisdom, solidarity, or cooperation. No matter what you may count this, we desperately need to destroy this card, lest we may have the same consequences of the neighboring country. It suffers from a civil war, that may end up in division, and actually the westerners have hinted to divide it. 

Dear brothers, we should know well how our enemies conspire against us. In fact, this month, our enemies are discussing the Greater Middle East initiative, which includes a great number of countries that are divided into races, nations, sects and state affiliation, and each one of them has a flag and certain regulations. In addition, moving from one country to another needs a passport. This initiative has been prepared to behind the scenes, but now it is declared to the public. 

Dear brothers, we are in dire need of cooperation and to destroy this card. I like the name a scholar has given to this initiative. He called the Greater Middle East initiative by the dirty crack.

Dear brothers, as you know, Allah, Exalted and Sublime be He, knows what is going on, because it does not fit His Lordship and Divinity that He does not know, and the following Ayah proves this fact: 

(Not a leaf falls, but he knows it.)


[Al-An'am, 59]   

So do you think that He does not know about the rockets, about the thousands who are being killed or about the tens of thousands who are being displaced? Definitely, He knows, and we should deeply believe that Allah is able to do all things, and that His Command, when He intends a thing, is only that He says to do it, "Be!" and it is, or "Vanish!" and it vanishes.

I mentioned to you in a previous Khutbah that the Tsunami equals one million atomic bombs. Hence, Allah the Almighty is able to do all things (and Tsunami was a Divine Punishment); He knows and is able. 

Some people mistakenly think that Allah the Almighty has nothing to do with what is going on in the region, which indeed contradicts His Divinity and Lordship. Allah the Almighty says: 

(It is He (Allah) Who is the only Ilah (God to be worshipped) in the heaven and the only Ilah (God to be worshipped) on the earth.)

[Az-Zukhruf, 59]   

There is one more fact which is that whatever is happening is based on Allah's Knowledge and Plan and due to profound Wisdom.     

Dear noble brothers, pay attention to the following Hadith, please: 
 

(On the authority of Abu Dharr al-Ghifari (may Allah be pleased with him) from the Prophet (peace be upon him) is that among the sayings he relates from his Lord (may He be glorified) is that He said: …O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to be as pious as the most pious heart of any one man of you, that would not increase My kingdom in anything. O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to be as wicked as the most wicked heart of any one man of you, that would not decrease My kingdom in anything. O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to rise up in one place and make a request of Me, and were I to give everyone what he requested, that would not decrease what I have, any more that a needle decreases the sea if put into it. O My servants, it is but your deeds that I reckon up for you and then recompense you for, so let him who finds good, praise Allah, and let him who finds other than that, blame no one but himself. 

[Muslim, Ahmad, at-Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah and ad-Darmi]

Allah the Almighty says: 

(And your Lord would never destroy the towns wrongfully, while their people were right-doers.)

[Hud, 117]

Conspiracy theory is the pretext of the weak Muslims: 

This is a major fact, but unfortunately, there are Muslims, who do not accept the monotheistic analysis, the Qur'anic analysis, the faith-based analysis or the Divine analysis. They only believe in the secular analysis which is based on the out of date conspiracy theory. 

Man, dear brothers, tends to blame others, so whenever he falls short in accomplishing his missions, he says, "This is a conspiracy! The other party conspires against us." Well, part of their strength is derived from our weakness and from our negligence. Hence, you should stamp on the conspiracy theory with your foot. 

In the contemporary historical events, Muslims have become used to blaming colonialism, Zionism and Imperialism for whatever mistake happens. This is ridiculous, because mistakes are committed due to our weakness, lack of cooperation and lack of being prepared to face our enemy. This is the bitter truth, and it is thousands of times better than the relieving illusion. 

Dear brothers, in fact it is really relieving to blame our enemies for every calamity that befalls us, while actually it is due to our carelessness. I swear to Allah that we own the solution. Allah the Almighty says:  

(…and if you return (to the attack), so shall We return,) 

[Al-Anfal, 19]


Allah the Almighty says in another Surah: 

(Verily! Allah will not change the good condition of a people as long as they do not change their state of goodness themselves (by committing sins and by being ungrateful and disobedient to Allah).)

[Ar-Ra'd, 11] 

He also says: 

(And never will Allah grant to the disbelievers a way (to triumph) over the believers.)

[An-Nisa', 141] 

Allah the Almighty says: 

(And that Our hosts, they verily would be the victors.)

[As-Saffaat, 173] 

Are we true hosts of Allah the Almighty? 

(Verily, We will indeed make victorious Our Messengers and those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism) in this world's life and on the Day when the witnesses will stand forth, (i.e. Day of Resurrection),)

[Ghafir, 51]

Allah the Almighty says: 

(Allah has promised those among you who believe, and do righteous good deeds, that He will certainly grant them succession to (the present rulers) in the earth, as He granted it to those before them, and that He will grant them the authority to practise their religion, that which He has chosen for them (i.e. Islam). And He will surely give them in exchange a safe security after their fear…)

[An-Nur, 55] 

These are Allah's Promises and annihilating the universe is easier to Allah than leaving His Promises (to the believers) unfulfilled. 

Dear noble brothers, the West is strong, and it does not care about the weak, does not listen to the argument of the weak, nor does it consider the weak in the first place. This is how the Kafir deals with others. 

When you think of westerners' speeches, you respect them, while they are mean. Therefore, empower yourselves and hit them. Keep in mind the West does not respect but the powerful. Allah, Exalted and Sublime be He, says:  

(And make ready against them all you can of power,)

[Al-Anfal, 60] 

Some people believe in just the matters we like in religion just as Umrah, shortening Salah, marriage and light things, but when it comes to the following Ayah, they will hesitate. Allah the Almighty says:  

(And make ready against them all you can of power,)

[Al-Anfal, 60] 

Well, we are supposed to apply the Method of Allah as a whole. Is it reasonable to build a country in twenty years by a Riba-based loan? Forty billion was spent to build such a country. What is the value of a nation that has no power? What is the value of a nation that has no deterrence? 

Dear noble brothers, perhaps the most serious mistake Muslims have made is lacking the faith that keeps them obedient to Allah the Almighty. I have mentioned to you many times that the circle of the believers is wide and Iblis is included since has said as Allah the Almighty narrates: 

([Iblis (Satan)] said: "By Your Might,) 

[Saad, 82] 

He also said: 

(You created me from fire,)

[Saad, 76]

He also said: 

((Iblis) said: "Allow me respite till the Day they are raised up (i.e. the Day of Resurrection).")

[Al-A'araf, 14] 

The 2nd item: The true belief in Allah:  

The faith that is not manifested in the manners and behavior of Muslims is undoubtedly worthless and satanic. In other words, the majority of people believe in the Existence of Allah (but they do not establish Islam in their daily life properly), so you hardly find someone who says to you, "Allah does not exist", and even the one who commits adultery, says to you, "Allah helped me to commit it." Thus, having faith without application is definitely valueless. As, I have just said, the majority of people are believers in the Existence of Allah, which is one of many manifestations of faith. Allah, Exalted and Sublime be He, says: 

(O you who believe!)

[An-Nisa', 136]
Within the majority of people who form a big circle, there is a smaller one, but who are included in this small circle? They are the ones whose belief makes them obedient to Allah the Almighty, and this is the belief that saves us. Well, such type of belief is the first condition of gaining victory. Namely, we should be truly believers; our belief should keep us obedient to Allah the Almighty and make us act upon Allah's Order concerning ourselves, our households and our jobs. 

This is an obligatory but not enough condition to gain victory, and I say that depending on Allah's Book, so that you may understand what is really going on. In fact, we are not considered believers in the Quranic concept. Namely, our belief in Allah's Existence does not help us. Allah the Almighty says: 

(And Allah would not punish them while you (Muhammad PBUH) are amongst them,)

[Al-Anfal, 33]


As long as we apply the Sunnha and the method of the Prophet, peace be upon him, to all our affairs and daily life activities, we are secured from Allah's Punishment. 
    

The 3rd item: Making ready all means of power:  

One more condition is mentioned in the Ayah in which Allah the Almighty says: 

(And make ready against them all you can of power,)

[Al-Anfal, 60] 

It is not enough to believe in Allah's Existence nor is it enough to only make ready all means of power against your enemy, because Allah's Forgiveness is gained by repentance (returning to Allah in sincere repentance) and by making ready all means of power against our enemy. This is the only way to achieve victory as it is mentioned in the Noble Quran. Allah the Almighty says:  

(…and (as for) the believers it was incumbent upon Us to help (them).)

[Ar-Rum, 47]

Allah the Almighty says: 

(And make ready against them all you can of power,)

[Al-Anfal, 60] 

However, due to Allah's Mercy, Allah the Almighty does not ask us to make ready the means of power which our enemies have. Actually, Allah the Almighty will fill the huge gap between the means of power we have and the means of power we need to defeat our enemies by His Mercy and Protection. Accordingly, part of the victory Muslims achieve is due to Allah's Favor, Help, Support and victory. 

Dear noble brothers, get yourselves used to accept the monotheistic analysis, the Divine analysis and the Quranic analysis. Do not care about the earthy polytheistic analyses and accustom yourselves to believe in the Quranic solution. Allah the Almighty says:  

(And Allah would not punish them while you (Muhammad PBUH) are amongst them,)

[Al-Anfal, 33] 

Pay attention to the following Hadith: 

(The Prophet, peace be upon him said, "Whoever says, 'La ilaha ila Allah (There is no deity that is worthy to be worshipped but Allah Alone)' sincerely will be admitted to Paradise." They asked, "How is it said sincerely, O Allah's Messenger?" He replied, "It is said sincerely when it abstains you from committing forbidden matters.") 

[At-Targheeb wa At-Tarheeb, on the authority of Zaid bin Arqam] 

We should return to Allah (with sincere repentance), reconcile with Him, and make ready against our enemies the available means only (not necessary the equivalent ones to our enemies'), and Allah the Almighty will fill the gap between our power and the power of our enemies. This is the only way through which we can gain triumph. 

People seek another way, which is represented by signing agreements, neutralizing relations, and supporting one powerful country. They just want to remain deviated, sinful and lustful. Furthermore, they want to care about achieving their personal interests ignoring by that Allah's Shari'ah. 

By Allah, there is no hope to be victorious unless we repent to Allah the Almighty, returning to Him, and making ready against our enemy all available means of power. Hence, you should consider the Quranic analysis and the Quranic solution for the events.   

Dear brothers, one more thing, if we become victorious, and we hope Allah grants us victory, believe it or not, we will establish a new Islamic Middle East, and so we will became peer to our enemies. 

Unfortunately, they do not see us at all, nor they do care about our words or meetings. They see us as weak, backward, cowardice, scattered and fragmented, but if they see us as a united force after we return to Allah with sincere repentance, things will be different. 

By Allah, I have heard Zionists saying hundreds of times, "Muslims win over us if the number of those who pray al-Fajr is the same number of those who pray Friday Salat." I heard this dozens of times said by leaders of our enemies. Thus, when will we win over them? We will win over them if those who pray al-Fajr are as many as those who pray Friday Salat.

Dear noble brothers, sometimes events give believers a new charge making them believe that they we can defeat our enemy. Well, this is true if we call for Jihad once again and be an effective force to us. In fact, when Muslims despair, when they become weak, when they lose hope and when they mistakenly think that Allah the Almighty has abandoned them, and that Islam will never be a powerful force, Allah the Almighty gives an energizing impulse that enables Muslims to defeat this arrogant enemy, who all Muslims believe that he is an undefeatable force, can be suck in the mud, can lose his sense, and can doubt the power of his leaderships. 

We were weakened, but now, things have changed. Allah the Almighty says: 

(...if you are suffering (hardships) then surely, they (too) are suffering (hardships) as you are suffering,) 

[An-Nisa', 104] 

They have sirens, they have shelters, they have displaced people, they have wounded people, they have dead people, they have economic disturbance, and they have cancelled tourist season. Allah the Almighty says: 

(...if you are suffering (hardships) then surely, they (too) are suffering (hardships) as you are suffering, but you have a hope from Allah (for the reward, i.e. Paradise) that for which they hope not,) 

[An-Nisa', 104] 

Essential facts to be clarified: 

The 1st fact: The deserved victory: 

Dear brothers, it is essential to clarify some facts. When Allah, Exalted and Sublime be He, grants the believers victory, He does that, because they are believers as they should be in their beliefs, behavior and manners. Hence, due to Allah's Favor, Mercy and Justice, believers are granted victory. 

Scholars call this type of victory the deserved victory which is granted to believers as long as they behave like the true believers behave, and it is granted due to Allah's Favor, Mercy and Justice. This victory is called the deserved victory. Allah the Almighty says: 

(And Allah has already made you victorious at Badr, when you were a weak little force.)

[Aal-'Imran, 123] 

The 2nd fact: Victory that is given due to Allah's Favor: 

When Allah the Almighty grants the believers victory although they are not as they should be in their beliefs and manners, He does that due to His Mercy, Favor and Wisdom rather than His Justice. 

Scholars call this type of victory, the victory that is granted due to Allah's Favor, and the proof is in the following Ayah. Allah the Almighty says: 

(The Romans have been defeated* In the nearer land (Syria, Iraq, Jordan, and Palestine), and they, after their defeat, will be victorious* Within three to nine years. The decision of the matter, before and after (these events) is only with Allah, (before the defeat of Romans by the Persians, and after, i.e. the defeat of the Persians by the Romans). And on that Day, the believers (i.e. Muslims) will rejoice (at the victory given by Allah to the Romans against the Persians),)

[Ar-Rum, 2-4]

This victory took place in the era of the Companions of the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him. The ones who rejoiced at it were the Companions of the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, but the victorious were the People of the Scripture; they won over the fire worshippers. Thus, the People of the Scripture were victorious thanks to Allah's Favor, Mercy and Wisdom. This is why some people make Du'a to Allah be saying, "O Allah, if we do not deserve to be victorious, grant us victory due to Your Favor, O Lord of the Worlds, and do not make our enemies rejoice at our misfortune." 

The 3rd fact: Evaluating people is done by Allah only:  

Dear noble brothers, evaluating people is done by Allah alone, so do not bother yourself with evaluating people. The Prophet, peace be upon him, was in the house of one of his Companions when the latter died, so the deceased's wife said upon seeing the Prophet, peace be upon him, "Congratulation O Aba as-Sa'ib! Allah the Almighty has honored you (meaning that the Prophet, peace be upon him, himself came to see him after his death as a sign of Allah's Honor to him)!" had the Prophet, peace be upon him, kept silent, her words would have been true, but he said, "How did you know that Allah the Almighty has honored him? Say, 'I ask Allah the Almighty to honor him. I am a Prophet sent to you by Allah the Almighty, but I do not know what Allah may do to you or do to me."

Rest yourself from evaluating people. Judge people according to their appearances and leave what they hide in their heart to Allah the Almighty. In other words, do not appoint yourself a judge on Muslims, nor do you consider others Kuffar just like that, since there are Kufr by belief, by words, and by deed. Furthermore, do not evaluate people from their affiliations, because their value is derived from their words and deeds, and leave what they hide inside to Allah the Almighty. This is the true Islamic attitude towards people. 

You may judge other people according to their words and deeds, but leave what they hide inside to Allah to judge. We judge people according to what they show us, but Allah the Almighty deals with their hidden things. Hence, it is none of your business to consider yourself a divine creature and consider someone a Kafir and someone else a believer. Also, never say that this one will enter into Paradise while the other one will fall into Hell-Fire. However, you can say, for instance, "Whoever says so and so, then it is a word of Kufr." In brief, do not consider other people Kuffar just by pointing to them.  

Dear noble brothers, Islam is a one united religion, so the war between two parties who believe in al-Haqq (the truth) never occurs, the war between al-Haqq (the truth) and al-Batil (falsehood) never goes on, but the war between two parties who follow al-Batil never ends.  

The 4th fact: Victory that is granted due to power means   

I have mentioned earlier this lesson the deserved victory, and then I have talked about the victory that is granted to Muslims due to Allah's Favor upon them. We reach the victory that is granted to one of the fighting parties due to power means. 

If two fighting parties are heedless from Allah the Almighty, the most powerful party, the one who owns state-of-the- art weapon, the one who owns  satellites, the one who has a lot of money, the one who controls the media and the one who has alliances wins such a war. 

To sum up, the types of victory are; the deserved victory, the one granted due to Allah's Favor and the one granted due to the means of power owned by the fighting parties

The 5th fact: Islam is one united religion:  

Dear noble brothers, I would like to assure you once again that Islam is one united religion and that conflicts between different Islamic parties never exist in the origin of religion. Unfortunately, we have founded them to serve our desires and interests. Allah the Almighty says: 

(Those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) did not differ except, out of mutual jealousy, after knowledge had come to them.)

[Aal-'Imran, 19] 

There are differences that are caused by having imperfect information, and they are normal to be found. Allah the Almighty says: 

(Mankind were one community and Allah sent Prophets)

[Al-Baqarah, 213] 

Concerning the people of the Scripture, Allah the Almighty says:  

(Those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) did not differ except, out of mutual jealousy, after knowledge had come to them.)

[Aal-'Imran, 19] 

This is a reference to envy towards Muslims. 

The main thing is that Islam is one unified religion, so all the differences between the Islamic groups do not exist in the origin of this religion. I would like to give you one example. Abu Bakr Muhammed bin at-Tayyeb al-Baqlani mentioned in his book Inimitability of the Quran on page 143, and the text is more than two pages, but I chose few lines from it for you. 

He mentioned that when Abu Bakr, may Allah be pleased with him, passed away, our Master Ali Ibn Abi Talib, may Allah be pleased with him, said, "May Allah have mercy upon your soul O Abu Bakr. You were the closest to the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, and his intimate friend, his trusted friend and the keeper of his secrets. You were the first one among people who embraced Islam, the most sincere believer, the most certain of Islam, the most fearful of Allah the Almighty, the most steadfast in Islam, the best companion and the most elevated. 

O Abu Bakr, you were the most similar man to the Messenger of Allah, in his guidance, mercy, and favor. You were the most honorable.  May Allah reward you for Islam and its Messenger with goodness. You were like his hearing and sight. You believed Allah's Messenger when all people belied him, you pacified him when all people rejected him and you supported him when all people abandoned him. Allah the Almighty called you Siddiq in His Book when He said, 'And he (Muhammad PBUH) who has brought the truth (this Qur'an and Islamic Monotheism) and (those who [among them is Aby Bakr]) believed therein (i.e. the true believers of Islamic Monotheism), those are Al- Muttaqun (the pious and righteous persons).' [Az-Zumar, 33]." 

Islam is one unified religion and the conflicts between the Islamic parties have been fabricated and invented by those who intend to achieve their own interests and satisfy their desires. Allah the Almighty says:  

(Those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) did not differ except, out of mutual jealousy, after knowledge had come to them.)

[Aal-'Imran, 19] 


This is what happens to them due to the mutual envy. 

The 6th fact: Islam is Tawqifi, so it accepts neither deletion nor addition:  

Dear brothers, once again, this great religion is Tawqifi [It is not permissible to worship Allah, may He be exalted, through any act of worship unless this act of worship is proven in the Shar'i texts (Qur'an and Sunnah) to be an act of worship that was prescribed by Allah.]. Thus, nothing should be deleted from it, lest it is accused of having extra matters that are pointless. 

When Jihad was deleted- regrettably before it was deleted no one dared to even utter this word (Jihad)- for the sake of two captives, a whole country was destroyed with its infrastructure, buildings, and people including women and children. This is what happened because of two captives! This country has about ten thousand captives in the Israeli's prisons, and among them are 8 ministers, 30 members of the Legislative Council, and the Leader of the Council. According to which measure are they scaling their standards? 

This council was elected according to the regulations of the West democratically and under westerners' supervision. Yet its members are detainees now. Hence, never discuss matters with the powerful party. Instead, do your best to empower yourself and hit him, because he only respects the powerful. 

The 7th fact: The West respects but the powerful:   

Dear brothers, Islamic history teaches us that if we delete from it what is known to be essential, such as Jihad, we will become weak, and our enemies will skillfully oppress us, plunder our wealth, control us, impose their will and culture on us and prevent us from teaching our children the principles of our religion. This obligation (Jihad) should be dealt with as it used to be, because it is the only way to defeat our enemies. Well, you can call it resistance if you want, but as a term in religion, it is called Jihad. 
 
The main point is we should be powerful. By Allah, they have secret plans against us that make the hair of newborn babies gray out of fear. We ask Allah the Almighty to make us victorious in this sixth war. If we win, I hope that Allah help us found new Middle East rather than a dirty crack.

***

Dear brothers, call yourselves to account before you are called to do so, weigh your deeds before they are weighed against you and  know that the Angel of Death has reached others and will reach us soon, so pay heed. The wise man is the one who calls himself to account (and refrains from doing evil deeds) and does noble deeds to benefit him after death; and the foolish person is the one who subdues himself to his temptations and desires and seeks from Allah the fulfillment of his vain desires.

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds

***

The 2nd Khutbah

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, and I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah; the Protector of the righteous. And I bear witness that our Prophet Muhammad, peace and upon him, is His Servant and Messenger, the one with exalted morals. May Allah's Peace and Blessings be upon him, his Folks and Companions. 
A story and a moral lesson: be united and beware of division
Dear noble brothers, pay attention to the following story, which is referred to briefly in the Noble Quran. The Prophet, peace be upon him, was merciful to his Ummah, and his mercy was manifested in his keenness on keeping it united and powerful. Thus, he ordered people to do whatever kept the Ummah united, powerful and collaborated, and he forbid whatever made her scattered, shattered and weak. The Prophet, peace be upon him, called for true fraternity which is embodied in unity, solidarity, support, synergy, cooperation and correlation. Not to mention, he warned Muslims against dispersal, hostility, hatred and fragmentation. The Prophet, peace be upon him, referred to these matters in his theoretical (Qawliyyah) and practical (Fi'liyah) Sunnah.  

The event of the story: 

In the era of the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, Shaas Ibn Qays, one of the leaders of the Jews, passed by a group of al-Aws and al-Khazraj while they were sitting together in a brotherly and friendly environment. He was enraged by the affectionate scene and hatred ate up his heart. Therefore, he ordered a young Jewish man to join their session and remind them of the Day of Bu'aath – the day on which al-Aws gained victory over al-Khazraj five years before the Prophet's migration to al-Madinah – and to recite to them some of their poetry that highly praised that occasion. The young man did that and the fire of turmoil was ignited between the two parties and a bloody war was about to start between them. 

The news was conveyed to the Prophet, peace be upon him, who went to them with a group of al-Muhajirin, and the trouble was prevented. He, peace be upon him, said to them, "(Are you following) the traditions of Jahiliyyah (Pre-Islamic period of ignorance) whilst I am among you? (Is it that you want to) become disbelievers again after Allah has honored you with Islam, cut you off the (evils of) Jahiliyyah, and united your hearts, would you then wish to return to your original state as non-Muslims (disbelievers)?" 

Thereupon they regained their senses and realized that it was one of the hostile plots of their enemy. They put down their weapons, wept, and embraced one another then moved away with the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, and so the plot of their enemy Shaas Ibn Qays was in vain.
 

The results of the story: 

The Prophet, peace be upon him, described the conflict by Kufr. Needless to say, Allah the Almighty has sent down an Ayah regarding this incident. Allah the almighty says:

(And how would you disbelieve, while unto you are recited the Verses of Allah, and among you is His Messenger (Muhammad PBUH)? And whoever holds firmly to Allah, (i.e. follows Islam Allah's Religion, and obeys all that Allah has ordered, practically), then he is indeed guided to a Right Path.)

[Aal-'Imran, 101] 

Moreover, the Prophet, peace be upon him, said in the Hadith reported by Imam Muslim: 

(Narrated Jarir: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said to me during Hajjat-al-Wada': Let the people keep quiet and listen. Then he said (addressing the people), "Do not (become infidels) revert to disbelief after me by striking the necks (cutting the throats) of one another (killing each other).)

Hence, based on this Hadith, whoever kills his Muslim brother is considered Kafir: 

("Do not (become infidels) revert to disbelief after me by striking the necks (cutting the throats) of one another (killing each other).)

Be united to destroy the moldy card of sectarianism: 

I would like to mention this truth one more time: There is one last trump card in the hands of our enemies, and I hope it is the last card, which is stirring up sectarian strife. Therefore, by your awareness of your faith, sincerity, wisdom, and concern for your Ummah and for your unity, you should destroy this card. The enemy intended to create a huge crack in Lebanon, but what happened was exactly the contrary. We ask Allah to grant us victory and success.

Du'a

We beseech You, O Allah, to show us the way of rightness, together with those to whom You have showed it; and give us good health, together with those whom You have healed; and be our Protector, together with those for whom You have become their Protector; and bless us in what You have bestowed on us and save us from the afflictions that You have decreed, for You rule with justice and You are never judged. He whom You protect shall never be humiliated, and he whom You make enemy shall never be exalted. Blessed and dignified are You, and we thank You for what You have decreed.  We ask You for Forgiveness for our sins, and we repent to You. 

O Allah,  guide us to perform a good deed, as You are the One Who guides to the best of deeds. O Allah, make us do well in the Deen which is our dignity and make our lives good, for it is our living and make us safe on the Day of Judgment, for it is our Final Destination. O Allah, make life our supply for all good things and make death a rest from every evil, O our Master, Lord of  the Worlds.

O Allah, make us prefer everything You have made lawful to everything You have made unlawful, let Your Mercy make us independent of all others, make us obedient to You and turn us away from disobedience. 

O Allah,  by Your Favor and Mercy raise high  the word of truth and this Deen,  grant triumph to Islam, dignify Muslims and grant triumph to Muslims everywhere. O Allah humiliate polytheism and polytheists, and guide the rulers of Muslims to whatever pleases you, O Lord of the Worlds as You are the only One Who is capable over His decreed, and Who responds to our supplication.
