Never let your self be distraught or be confused on this matter that all the great scholars and personalities of Islam do not have the same, one, agreeable opinion upon a certain matter in a congregative way. However, if this happens it is the most best of blessings and a thing that is full of good. Even though on certain issues if someone differs or disagrees in opinion, that dis-agreement should not cause distraught and confusion leading to opposition. Because, if a dis-agreement remains only a dis-agreement then it is a blessing, but if that dis-agreement turns into an opposition then it is not a blessing but an inconvenience for everyone. And if we try to remove the limit or the distance between opposition and dis-agreement then it is bad for the Ummah and for our schools of thought as well. Sadly, we have removed the difference between dis-agreement and opposition. Wherever there is a dis-agreement we turn it into opposition, which further turns into a debate, leading to a dispute. If a certain dis-agreement is literary then there is no harm, because literary dis-agreements were found among the Sahaba Ajmaeiin (Radhi Allahu Anhu) too, but they never opposed each other. Such literary dis-agreements were found among the Tabieen, Taba Tabieen, the great scholars and the 4 Imaams too. But their way was to let their dis-agreement remain only a dis-agreement and not to turn their dis-agreement into opposition, therefore, it then remains a mercy. Therefore, the first rule for the unity of Muslim Ummah is that we must make a strong intention, deep in our hearts, that we will never let our literary dis-agreement turn into a mutual opposition, therefore in this way dis-agreements never cause harm. This should be a fundamental principle of thought in uniting the Ummah.
