Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,
We all know only one sect will enter Jannah
) but which one is it?
According to Ibn Taymiah(RA):
Anyone from one of the 72 other sects who is a hypocrite is
indeed an unbeliever in his heart. Anyone from among them who is not
a hypocrite but who in fact believes in Allah and His Messenger is
not an unbeliever
, regardless of whatever mistakes in
interpretation they may have. When a believer says: “Our Lord,
forgive us and our brothers who have preceded us in faith” [from
Sûrah al-Hashr: 10], he means all the Muslims of the past centuries,
even those who made mistakes in interpretation, acted contrary to
the Sunnah, or committed some sins. They are still from his brothers
who preceded him in faith and they all come under the generality of
his supplication, even if they had belonged to one of the 72 other
sects. Each one of these sects contains within its ranks a large
number of people who are not unbelievers.
They are believers who
have gone somewhat astray and have sinned, making them worthy of the
threat of punishment.
Therefore whether one is upon Qur'an and Sunnah is determined by the
Intention of the Individual and only Allah(SWT) knows what they hold
in their hearts . We shoudln't go around Judging others based on the sect they are affiliated with for their intentions might
be correct but they do not know any better OR sincerely believe
their movement is part of the Qur'an and Sunnah therefore making
them part of the sect which goes to Paradise and not the 72 sects
which deviate from it. Also note that the Individual might not be
part of any group movement and still be part of the group that goes
to Jannah, a group which believes in Allah(SWT), His Massengers,
enjoins good and forbids Evil.
Therefore leave the judging to Allah(SWT) and Hold on to the rope
