Assalam alaikoum wa Rahmatullaah wa Barakaatuh,
An interesting take on the differences between a ‘cult’ and a ‘community’. The existence of such ‘cults’ are undeniably causing a lot of divisions within the Ummah and this is a critical issue that needs to be addressed. Allahu Mustaan..
Once I was discussing with a sister about some practices which I completely disagree with, and seeing that convincing me was futile, she told me to make dua that He guides us to the right source of knowledge and keep us far away from misguidance.. in other words, I felt like she was telling me that as much as we are sure we are on the right path, we should never fail to invoke Him for guidance because, we might be wrong on certain things. Even Imaams have said that they are not ma’sum so how about us, whose knowledge is a mere scratch on the surface?
