Are the differences between Shia and Sunni sects really huge?Is there any way these differences can be resolved?
In our opinion, there really are some major differences in the two sects. However, on the other hand, we believe that if one were to consider the similarities, rather than the differences, one would have found a lot of them as well. We really think that the fire of hatred that is being aired between the followers of the two sects (especially in Pakistan) is completely out of place and should be strictly avoided.
Only ‘submission to truth’,accepting what is fair,respecting each other’s revered personalities and tolerance is the way forward.Calling each other “Kaafir” or taking each other’s lives will only be detrimental to the future of these groups both in this world and in the hereafter.
May Allah give us the wisdom and courage to understand our deen without any sectarian bias.
