Allah promises salvation to all those who try to be good Muslims. But there’s a catch that almost all Muslims overlook. We’ll talk about that today.
The Messenger of Allaah (PBUH) said: “Those who came before you of the people of the Book split into seventy-two sects, and this ummah will split into seventy-three: seventy-two in Hell and one in Paradise.” — Narrated by Abu Dawood (4597) and others; classed as Saheeh by most (ask me if you need details on that).
Well. Can you see the catch already ? While most Muslims think of their “Muslim” label as a ticket to heaven, this hadeeth makes it crystal clear that there are 72 out of 73 (98.6%) chance that the sect each of us follows is a devious one and would lead us to hell-fire regardless of our loyalties to Allah and his Prophet (PBUH). That said, what makes us so satisfied Muslims ? Why do we adhere to to our native sects all our lives without ever being critical? Each one of us claims to be the one saved sect Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) mentioned in this hadeeth but how many of us have actually researched the credibility of our sects without all that bias? It’s never too late. Start your Study today. Question even the smallest logical holes within your native sect. Be dispassionate. Only then will you be able to find the true sect and be among the 1.4% saved ones.
