Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen & Different Eras

An English Rendering of the Urdu Pamphlet
Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen Aur Mukhtalif Adwar
By Ameer of Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen Muhammad Ishtiaq


After spending thirteen years in Mecca when Prophet Muhammad (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-wa-Sallam) migrated to Medina on the order of Allah, and his companions who had migrated from Mecca for Islam reached Medina as well, then Prophet Muhammad (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-wa-Sallam) formally laid the foundation for the Jamaah and with Allah's order made the Jamaah.

After making the Jamaah Prophet Muhammad (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-wa-Sallam) gave the Ummah the following instructions.

1. Allah the Exalted says in the Quran:

And hold fast all of you together (as Jamaah) to the rope of Allah and do not separate.

(Surah Aale Imran, ayah 103)

2. Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-wa-Sallam) said:

On you Jamaah is compulsory and escape from separation as Shaitan is with the one and far from the two.

(Tirmidhi Vol.4 pg.404, Imam Tirmidhi said this hadith is Hasan Sahih)

3. Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-wa-Sallam) said:

Whoever wants to get the centre of paradise should stick to the Jamaah.

(Tirmidhi; declared Sahih by Imam Tirmidhi)

4. Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

The hand of Allah is on the Jamaah.

(Tirmidhi, Tabarani Kabeer, Ahmad; with a Sahih Sanad)

5. Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

A person who left the Jamaah.

(Musnad Ahmad, Mustadrak Hakim with a Sahih Sanad; Vol.1 pg.119)

6. Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

Whosoever left Jamaah even the size of a palm removes the chain of Islam from his neck unless he reverted (to the Jamaah).

(Mustadrak Hakim Vol.1 pg.77 and declared Sahih by him)

7. Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

Jamaah is a blessing and sectarianism a torment.

(Ahmad, Sahih Al-Jami-us-Sagheer).

8. Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

And a person who left Islam leaving Jamaah.

(Sahih Bukhari)

9. Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

Leaving of the Jamaah is abandoning the Sunnah.

(Ahmad with a Sahih Sanad: 2/229)

Living in the form of Jamaah is necessary, the Jamaah is compulsory, for entering paradise holding of the Jamaah is necessary, Allah's hand is on the Jamaah, leaving of the Jamaah is leaving Islam, the Jamaah is blessing, kill the person who leaves the Jamaah and the person who exits the Jamaah abandons the Jamaah.

All the above stated orders are given to us by the Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) about the Jamaah to the Ummah but from the above it is not be clear whose Jamaah is this? Who are the people that are present in this Jamaah? To whom this Jamaah is attributed towards, by the grace of Allah (Subhana hu-wa-Tala) the answers to all these questions are also present in the ahadith.

Era of the Prophet and Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen

1.      Narrated Um-'Atiya (may Allah be pleased with her):

We were ordered to go out (for 'Id) and also to take along with us the menstruating women, mature girls and virgins staying in seclusion. (Ibn 'Aun said, "Or mature virgins staying in seclusion)." The menstruating women were to present themselves at the religious gathering and invocation of Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen but should keep away from their Musalla (praying place).

(Sahih Bukhari: Volume 2, Book 15, Number 97)

The above mentioned hadith of Sahih Bukhari clarifies that wherever the word Jamaah is used it refers to Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen. Furthermore another proof from the hadith of Ibn-Abi-Shaiba is as follows:

2.      Ayesha (may Allah be pleased with her) said:

Amongst the Ahl-ul-Qibla (those who face the Kaaba in Salaah) no one is to be killed, but the three cases make their killing halaal:

1. Man for a man,

2. Married adulterator, and

3. The one who leaves Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

(Ibn-Abi-Shaiba Vol.6 pg.428 with a Sahih Sanad)

Therefore it is clear that the word Jamaah it refers to Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

Adhering to Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen is compulsory:

1. Narrated Jubair bin Mut'im (may Allah be pleased with him):

Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

May Allah glorify the face of the person who hears my hadith then  memorizes it and conveys it to one who has not heard it, and many learned people do not have the understanding and many learned people convey it to one who has better understanding then themselves, there are three things on which the heart of true believer never deceives:

1. Performing good deeds for the sake of Allah alone,

2. Obeying the Emir, and

3. Adhering to Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

And truly their propagation is victorious upon everyone except upon themselves alone.

(Mustadrak Hakim Vol.1 pg.87 with a Sahih Sanad).

2. Narrated Nauman Bin Basheer (may Allah be pleased with him):

Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

May Allah glorify the face of the person who hears my hadith then memorizes it and conveys it to one who has not heard it, and many  learned people do not have the understanding and many learned people convey it to one who has better understanding then themselves, there are three things on which the heart of true believer never deceives:

1. Performing good deeds for the sake of Allah alone,

2. Obeying the Emir, and

3. Adhering to Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

(Mustadrak Hakim, Imam Zahabi and Imam Hakim declared it Sahih on the conditions of Muslim, Vol.1 pg.88)

3. Narrated Ma'az bin Jabal (may Allah be pleased with him):

Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

May Allah glorify the face of the person who hears my hadith, doesn't adds in it and conveys it to one who has not heard it, and many learned people do not have the understanding and many learned people convey it to one who has better understanding then themselves, there are three things on which the heart of true believer never deceives:

1. Performing good deeds for the sake of Allah alone

2. Well wishing of every Muslim, and

3. Adhering to Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

(Tabarani Kabeer 82/2 and Ibn Asakir and Sanad is Sahih with evidence). (Tabarani Awsat 400/7) (Tabarani Awsat 458/8)

There is Amr bin Waqid in the narration who is dhaeef but Imam Hakim has narrated the same text from Jubair bin Muatim and Nauman bin Bashir (may Allah be pleased with them) so it can be narrated.

4. Narrated Anas (may Allah be pleased with him):

Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said at the time of his last pilgrimage to Kaaba:

May Allah glorify the face of the person who hears my hadith then memorizes it and conveys it to one who has not heard it, and many learned people do not have the understanding and many learned people convey it to one who has better understanding then themselves, there are three things on which the heart of true believer never deceives:

1. Performing good deeds for the sake of Allah alone,

2. Obeying those in authority, and

3. Adhering to Jamaat ul Muslimeen.

(Ibn Asakir, Tabarani Awsat 202/10 and Sanad is Sahih legheri with evidence)

In this narration there is Abdur Rehman bin Zaid bin Aslam, Ibn Khuzema says: Scholars didn't take his narration due to his weak memory (Tehzeeb). Ibn Adi says his narrations are Hasan. (Majma-uz-Zawaid 139/1)

5. Narrated Abu Darda (may Allah be pleased with him):

Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

May Allah glorify the face of the person who hears my hadith and conveys it and many learned people convey it to one who has better knowledge then themselves, there are three things on which the heart of Muslim never deceives:

1. Performing good deeds for the sake of Allah alone,

2. Well wishing of every Muslim, and

3. Adhering to Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

(Tabarani Kabeer, has Abdur Rehman bin Zubaid in the narration, he is declared reliable by Ibn Habban and the Sanad is Hasan with evidence)

6. Narrated Abu Saeed Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him):

Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said in his last sermon:

May Allah glorify the face of the person who hears my hadith then memorizes it, and many learned people do not have the understanding, there are three things on which the heart of true believer never deceives:

1. Performing good deeds for the sake of Allah alone,

2. Well wishing of the Imams of Muslimeen, and

3. Adhering to their Jamaah.

(Narrated Bazaar and the narrators are reliable)

7. Narrated Abdullah bin Masood (may Allah be pleased with him):

Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

May Allah glorify the face of the person who hears my hadith then memorizes it, many learned people do not have the understanding and deliver it to one who understands better, there are three things on which the heart of Muslim never deceives:

1. Performing good deeds for the sake of Allah alone,

2. Obeys the one in authority, and

3. Adhering to Jamaat ul Muslimeen.

(Tabarani Awsat 84/6, all narrators are reliable, Sanad is Sahih with evidence, Musnad Humaidi 29/1, Mishkaat of Albani 78/1 and Sanad is Sahih)

8. Narrated Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him):

Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

May Allah glorify the face of the person who hears my hadith then memorizes it, then delivers it, many learned people memorize it more then the person who heard it, there are three things on which the heart of true believer never deceives:

There are three things on which the heart of Muslim never deceives:

1. Performing good deeds for the sake of Allah alone,

2. Well wishing for the Emirs of Muslimeen, and

3. Adhering to their Jamaah.

(Tabarani Awsat 141/6 and the Sanad is Sahih legheri)

9. Narrated Zaid bin Sabit (may Allah be pleased with him):

Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

There are three things on which the heart of Muslim never deceives:

1. Performing good deeds for the sake of Allah alone,

2. Well wishing for the Emirs of Muslimeen, and

3. Adhering to their Jamaah.

(Tabarani Awsat 141/8, Sanad is Sahih, declared Sahih by Ibn Hajar, Mishkaat of Albani 78/1)

10. Narrated by Anas bin Malik (may Allah be pleased with him):

Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

There are three things on which the heart of true believer never deceives:

1. Performing good deeds for the sake of Allah alone,

2. Well wishing for person in authority, and

3. Adhering to Jamaat ul Muslimeen.

(Behqi 's Shuab ul Iman 66/6-67, Ibn Maja and Darmi 74-75/1, Ahmad 225/3, 80-82/4 & 183/5, Sanad is Hasan)

Imam Hakim said: "In this context, a Jamaah of the companions of the Prophet have narrated this hadith, among them are Umar, Usman, Ali, Abdullah bin Masood, Ma'az bin Jabal, Abdullah ibn Umar, Abdullah Ibn Abbas, Abu Huraira, Anas (may Allah be pleased with them); and the hadith narrated by Nauman bin Basheer (may Allah be pleased with him) is Sahih on the condition of Imam Muslim (Hakim Vol.1 pg.88).

Apart from the above stated ahadith, this hadith is also narrated by Zaid bin Sabit, Jubair bin Mut'im, Jabir and Abu Darda (may Allah be pleased with them).

For a person who believes in Allah and His Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) only one hadith is enough; but we have stated numerous ahadith in which the words "Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen" and "Adhering to Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen" are present for those people who said that the words "Adhering to Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen" are only narrated by Hudhaifa bin Yamaan (may Allah be pleased with him), by saying this they ridiculed the hadith present in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim.

Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) has considered "Adhering to Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen" as a part of faith and gave a stern warning to those who do not want to adhere to Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

To Leave Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen is to Leave Islam:

Narrated Abdullah Ibn Umar (may Allah be pleased with him):

Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

Whosoever left Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen even the size of a palm removes the chain of Islam from his neck.

(Tabarani Kabeer Vol.12 pg.440, with a Hasan Sanad)

And when leaving Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen is equivalent to leaving Islam, then can a believer do this? Of course not, that is why adhering to Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen is a part of faith.

To Oppose Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen is to leave Islam:

Narrated Abu Zar (may Allah be pleased with him):

Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

Whosoever opposed Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen even the size of a palm removes the chain of Islam from his neck.

(Mustadrak Hakim with a Sahih Sanad; Vol.1 pg.117)

In the era of Prophet Muhammad (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) only Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen was the true Jamaah and he (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) was its Emir.

And then the Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said there would be sects and in that era too the true Jamaah would be Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

In the era of sectarianism, the true Jamaah would be Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen:

Narrated Hudhaifa bin Al-Yaman (may Allah be pleased with him):

The people used to ask Allah's Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) about the good but I used to ask him about the evil lest the evil should overtake me.

So I said: O Allah's Prophet! We were living in ignorance and in an (extremely) worst atmosphere, then Allah brought to us this good (Islam); will there be any evil after this good?

He said: Yes

I said: will there be any good after that evil?

He replied: Yes, but it will be tainted

I asked: What will be its taint?

He replied: (There will be) some people who will guide others not according to my tradition? You will approve of some of their deeds and disapprove of some others.

I asked: Will there be any evil after that good?

Messenger of Allah (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said: (a time will come when some) people will invite (towards the wrong path) as if they are standing on the doors of hell and inviting (people) to enter it. They will throw into it all such persons who will accept their invitation (that is, he who obeys them will certainly go to hell).

Hudhaifa (may Allah be pleased with him) said: O messenger of Allah will you let me know something about their attributes and symbols?

Prophet Muhammad (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said: They will be from amongst our nation and will speak in our language.

Hudhaifa (may Allah be pleased with him) said: what should I do, if I survive up to that moment? What is your order for me (in this regard)?

Prophet Muhammad (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said: Stick to Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen and its Imam (Leader).

Hudhaifa (may Allah be pleased with him) asked: What if there is neither Jamaah nor their Imam? (What should I do then)?

Prophet Muhammad (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) replied: Keep yourself away from all sects, even if you have to live upon roots of trees and you shall have to remain in this state till your death reaches you.

[Sahih Bukhari (Kitab ul Fitan) & Sahih Muslim (Kitab ul Emaarat)]

The above Hadith clearly states that if there is any truth then it will be Jamaat-ul- Muslimeen otherwise all are sects and to stay aloof of all sects is a command of the Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam); which is to be obeyed under all circumstances.

In Ibn-Maja the words are like this:

You must adhere to Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen and its Imam.

(Ibn-Maja Vol.2 pg.1317 Sanad: Sahih)

Means in Ibn-Maja's narration there are words that state an order.

Narrated Abu Umama (may Allah be pleased with him):

Prophet  (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

I bequest, my successor, of Taqwa and also Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen, he should respect their elder and have mercy on their young, and also respect their scholars.

(Baihaqi 8/61, with Hasan Sanad, Kanz-ul-Ammaal Vol.6 pg.47)

Narrated Abu Zar (may Allah be pleased with him):

Prophet  (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

I make Allah the witness on the caretaker of this authority that he show mercy on Jamaat ul Muslimeen, have mercy on their young and respect their elders.

(Baihaqi's Shuab ul Iman 16/6 Vol.8, Kanz-ul-Ammaal 78/6)

Therefore the word Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen, narrated by so many Sahabas reflects, Jamaah means Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

Moreover, whether in the case of Abu Bakr, Umar, Usman, Ali, Muavia, Hasan, Yazid, Abdullah bin Zubair, Marwan, Abdul Malik, Waleed, Omar bin Abdul Aziz or whosoever Caliph, there was only proof one Jamaah at that time and that was Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

Era of Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) and Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen:

Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) said to Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) in the case of a land:

What made you to restrict this land to these two persons by leaving Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen?

(Ibn Abi Shaiba and Ibn-Asakir, Kanz-ul-Ammaal Vol.3 pg.914, Kanz-ul-Ammaal Vol.12 pg.583 and the Sanad is without any harm)

The narration clearly states that the Jamaah present in the era of Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) was Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen and Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) also considered Jamaah as Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

Era of Usman bin Affan (may Allah be pleased with him) and Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen:

After the era of Umar (may Allah be pleased with him); Usman (may Allah be pleased with him) became the Caliph of Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen. And this thing is common for all, without any doubt.

Sumama bin Hazan said:

At the time when Usman (may Allah be pleased with him) came to people before his martyrdom, I was present in the home. Usman (may Allah be pleased with him) said: I ask you to swear upon Allah according to Islam that do you know when Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) came to Madina; there was no water to drink except for the well of Ruma and he (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said: Whoever amongst you will buy this well and share his bucket of water with the buckets of Muslimeen for him there will be paradise. And I bought that well from my own wealth and I shared my bucket with the buckets of Muslimeen in the well.

(Nasaai and Tirmidhi who declared it Sahih, Fath-ul-Bari Vol.5 pg.29)

Further Usman (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

I am not a Jew but a person from amongst the Muslimeen.

(Tabarani with sound and authentic narrators and Majma-uz-Zawaid Vol.9 pg.93)

He then said: Oh Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen!

(Tabarani Vol.1 pg.87 and Imam Haisumi said in his Majma-uz-Zawaid that the Sanad is Hasan Vol.9 pg.94)

After the martyrdom of Usman (may Allah be pleased with him), one of the men said: By Allah if anyone buried Usman (may Allah be pleased with him) with ordinary Muslimeen.

(Tabarani Vol.1 pg.79 and Imam Haisumi said in his Majma-uz-Zawaid that the Sanad has sound narrators. Vol.9 pg.95)

The above event clarifies that:

1.    Usman (may Allah be pleased with him) was among the Muslimeen.

2.    Usman (may Allah be pleased with him) called the Muslimeen as Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

3.   Bought a well for the welfare of Muslimeen as per the wish of Prophet Muhammad (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam)

4.    Shared his bucket of water with the buckets of other Muslimeen.

5.    And Usman (may Allah be pleased with him) was not to be buried with ordinary Muslimeen.

These points represent that in the era of Usman (may Allah be pleased with him) there were only Muslimeen while there were no sects like today. Moreover the word Jamaah is also narrated by Usman (may Allah be pleased with him):

There are three things on which the heart of true believer never deceives:

1. Performing good deeds for the sake of Allah alone,

2. Obeying the Emir, and

3. Adhering to the Jamaah.

(Ibn-Hibban Vol.1 pg.237 with a Hasan Sanad)

Era of Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) and Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen:

Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

Whatever Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) has taken from you, was not for his own sake but that was only for Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

(Daar Qutni, Kanz-ul-Ammaal Vol.12 pg.601 with a Sahih Sanad)

Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

I am just a person from amongst the Muslimeen.

(Sahih Bukhari Vol.8 pg.32)

Muavia (may Allah be pleased with him) and Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen:

The first battalion sent was headed by Muavia (may Allah be pleased with him) in the era of Usman (may Allah be pleased with him).

The first battalion of Muslimeen that was sent was headed by Muavia (may Allah be pleased with him).

(Fath-ul-Bari Vol.6 pg.18)

After Ali (may Allah be pleased with him), Muavia (may Allah be pleased with him) became the Emir of Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

Narrated Abu Ashmakh Al-Azadi from his uncle:

He came to Muavia (may Allah be pleased with him) and then said to him: I have heard from the Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) saying that whosoever amongst the Muslimeen became the caretaker or Emir.

(Abu Ya'ala Vol.13 pg.368, 369 with a Sahih Sanad)

Muavia (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) was being told that you are the Emir of Muslimeen; so you should take care of them.

Hasan Ibn Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) moved towards Muavia (may Allah be pleased with him) with his subordinates. Amr Ibn Al-Aass (may Allah be pleased with him) said to Muavia (may Allah be pleased with him): I am looking at an army which will never be defeated until they defeat their opponents.

Muavia (may Allah be pleased with him) then said: Who will fight from my side.

Amir (may Allah be pleased with him) said: But peace is better.

Abdullah bin Amr (may Allah be pleased with him) and Abdurrahman bin Samura (may Allah be pleased with him) said: We met Hasan (may Allah be pleased with him) and said: Make peace, he replied in the affirmative, and peace was made.

Imam Hasan Basri (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

I have heard from Abu Bakra, saying that, in a condition while Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) was delivering a sermon, he (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

This son of mine is a Syed; maybe because of him Allah will make peace between two groups of Muslimeen.

(Fath-ul-Bari Vol.13 pg.61)

Muavia (may Allah be pleased with him) said to Hasan (may Allah be pleased with him): Deliver a sermon to people. Apart from all other matters Hasan (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

If the right of Imarah (Caliphate) is for me, then for the reform of Muslimeen and to avoid the bloodshed amongst Muslimeen, I give up the Imarah.

(Fath-ul-Bari Vol.13 pg.61)

When Hasan (may Allah be pleased with him) left the Imarah, then Mughira Ibn Shauba (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

For Muslimeen's sake Allah will give you reward. And for avoiding bloodshed among Muslimeen, truce is better.

(Fath-ul-Bari)

Therefore, whether in the era of Muavia or Hasan, Abu Bakr or Umar, Ali or Usman (may Allah be pleased with him), there were only Muslimeen at their time and there were no sects.

If the Jamaah present at the time of Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) was Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen then how come the Jamaah of Sahaba could be some group other than Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen?

Era of Hasan (may Allah be pleased with him) and Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen:

Narrated Abu Bakra (may Allah be pleased with him):

Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

This son of mine is a Syed, maybe because of him Allah will make peace between two groups of Muslimeen.

(Fath-ul-Bari Vol.13 pg.61)

The prophecy of Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) came true at the time of Muavia and Hasan (may Allah be pleased with them). Therefore it represents that at the time of Muavia and Hasan (may Allah be pleased with them) there were only Muslimeen and their Jamaah was "Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen".

Ubaid-ullah Bin Ziyad and Muslimeen:

It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Malik that Ubaidullah bin Ziyad visited Maqil bin Yasar (may Allah be pleased with him) in the latter's illness. Maqil (may Allah be pleased with him) said to him: I am narrating to you a tradition. If I were not at death's door, I would not have narrated it to you. I heard the messenger of Allah (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) saying that: A ruler who, having obtained control over the affairs of the Muslimeen.

(Sahih Muslim Vol.3 pg.1460)

The above-mentioned hadith identifies that Ubaidullah who was the governor at the time of Yazid bin Muavia (may Allah have mercy on him), had the control over the affairs of Muslimeen.

Therefore it proves that in the time of Yazid Ibn Muavia (may Allah have mercy on him) there were only Muslimeen and no other sect existed.

Abdul Malik Ibn Marwan:

When people gave baiyah on the hand of Abdul Malik Ibn Marwan, Abdullah bin Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) sent a letter to him stating that:

From Abdullah, to Abdul Malik Emir-ul-Momineen. I take oath for listening and obeying your orders on the way of Allah and His Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam), where I could.

(Fath-ul-Bari Vol.13 pg.193)

After Marwan, Abdul Malik became the Emir of Muslimeen. That era was of Muslimeen.

Abdullah Bin Zubair and Muslimeen:

When Ubaidullah Ibn Ziyad and Marwan came to Syria, "Ibn Zubair had Mecca under his rule.

(Sahih Bukhari, Fath-ul-Bari Vol.13 pg.68)

In another narration:

When Ibn Zubair took Mecca by force, then Muslimeen entered, where they wanted to enter.

(Tabarani; Hafiz Ibn Hajr is silent on the narrators in this chain. Fath-ul-Bari)

In another narration:

Abu Barza (may Allah be pleased with him) did not want bloodshed amongst Muslimeen.

(Fath-ul-Bari)

Umar bin Abdul Aziz and Muslimeen:

Umar bin Abdul Aziz (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

O! You old woman, do not deceive Muslimeen (in the matter of milk).

(Kanz-ul-Ammaal Vol.14 pg.25)

Now, proven that, in the era of Umar bin Abdul Aziz, too, there were Muslimeen. Now that was the eras of twelve Caliphs and the existence of Muslimeen.

In the following lines there are some more proofs:

Mohammad bin Maslama and Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen:

Hudhaifa (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

I know a person who would not be harmed by any turmoil and by this I mean Mohammad bin Maslama. Then we came to Madina, we saw a camp in which Mohammad bin Maslama Ansari was present. I questioned him about this. He replied: I could not live in any of these cities, until and unless this turmoil moved away from Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

(Mustadrak Hakim Vol.3 pg.434 declared Sahih by him and Imam Zahabi)

Mohammad bin Maslama during the time of Muavia (may Allah be pleased with him) abstained from Muavia because of turmoil and trial. And almost in that time got martyred.

Rabi bin Khaseem and Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen:

Rabi bin Khaseem said:

And that he may wish well for Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

(Baihaqi Vol.6 pg.287 with a Sahih Sanad)

Rabi bin Khaseem died in the era of Yazeed bin Muavia.

(Tazkiratul Haffaz Vol.1 pg.58)

Imam Makhool and Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen:

Narrated Imam Makhool (may Allah have mercy on him):

Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said:

A person who left Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen, there would be no Salaah accepted of him unless he returned to them.

(Saeed Ibn Mansoor Vol.2 pg.195; Ibn Hibban declared it Sahih)

The above narration is Mursal Hasan and strengthens the above quoted narrations.

Abu Usman Al-Nahdi and Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen:

Imam Abu Usman Al-Nahdi (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

And the real thing is well wishing for Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

(Shuab-ul-Imaan Vol.6 pg.26)

Abu Usman in explanation of "Wa Aimmatul Muslimeen wa Aammata-hum" narrated the above mentioned words. This hadith is also present in Sahih Muslim.

Anas (may Allah be pleased with him) Bequests to be a Muslim.

Mohammad bin Seereen while remembering the bequest of Yaqoob (Alaihi-Salaam) in the Quran, bequests to be a Muslim: O my sons! Lo! Allah hath chosen for you the (true) religion; therefore die not unless you are Muslimeen. And he asserted that the first bequest made by Anas Ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) was the same.

(Ibn abi Shaiba Vol.11 pg.232, Darmi pg.411).

Narrated Abdullah Ibn Masood (may Allah be pleased with him):

Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said: No Muslim is to be killed, who says there is no Ilah but Allah and Mohammad (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) is His messenger, but the one who commits any one of these three (should be killed):

1.      Man for a man.

2.      Married adulterator, and

3.      The one who abandons Deen or leaves the Jamaah.

(Fath-ul-Bari Vol.15 pg.221)

In this hadith does the word Jamaah mean any other Jamaah than Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen?

Ibn Hajr says Jamaah means Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen:

By Jamaah it means Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

(Fath-ul-Bari Vol.15 pg.221)

Imam Qartabi says Jamaah means Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen:

The definition of the one who leaves Jamaah is the one who leaves Islam, because a person becomes apostate if he leaves Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen, except for the person who has left Jamaah but returned to it (he will not become apostate).

(Fath-ul-Bari Vol.15 pg.222)

The above statements of the scholars state that according to them Jamaah means Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

Imam Khattabi and Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen:

And Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen is most excellent.

(Abu Ya'ala Vol.2 pg.478)

Nasiruddin Albani and Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen:

Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) said: On you Jamaah is compulsory.

(Narrated Ahmad Vol.5 pg.180)

Nasiruddin Al-Albani in an explanation of Jamaah said: Adhering to the ordinary people of Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

(Mishkaat Vol.1 pg.65)

Companions of Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) called themselves Muslimeen:

Ata (may Allah have mercy on him) said: We are Muslimeen because we have heard the companions of Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) declaring so.

(Ibn Abi Shaiba Vol.11 pg.36 with a Sahih Sanad)

By all, whether Prophet Muhammad (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) or his companions, Tabaeen or Taba-Tabaeen, Muhadditheen or scholars, the true Jamaah near to them is Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen.

Therefore it is our humble request to every person who believes in Allah and His Prophet (SallAllah-u-Alaihi-Wa-Sallam) to join Jamaat-ul-Muslimeen and end all sectarianism.
