the 72 sects

May Allaah grant you the best (of His favours). In the hadeeth
of the Prophet (sal-Allaahu
`alayhe wa sallam), relating to the splitting of the Ummah,
my Ummah shall split into 72 sects
is the Jamaa'ah
at-Tableegh, with what they have in terms of shirk
and innovations; and also the Jamaa'ah
al-Ikhwaan al-Muslimeen, with what they have in terms of partisanship
and revolting/rebelling against the leaders and lack of obedience;
from the 72 sects?
They are from the 72 (sects). Whoever opposes the 'aqeedah
of Ahlus-Sunnah enters the fold of the 72 (sects). The meaning
of the Prophet's (sal-Allaahu
`alayhe wa sallam) statement ((My
Ummah)) is: the Ummah
of Ijaabah, i.e. the Ummah
of response; those who responded to the Prophet's call and
revealed their allegiance to him. And the meaning of 73 sects:
the victorious sect which adhered to him and was upright in
their religion and 72 of those sects - amongst them the kuffaar,
the sinners and various innovators.
the questioners asked: Are these two groups (Jamaa'ah
at-Tableegh and Jamaa'ah al-Ikhwaan al-Muslimeen) from amongst
the 72 sects?
the Shaykh responded: Yes, they are from the amongst the
72 sects, along with the Murji'ah and other than them; the
Murji'ah and the Khawaarij - some of the people of knowledge
regard the Khawaarij from amongst the kuffaar,
out of the fold of Islaam although amongst the 72 sects.
from the recording of the Shaykh
Ibn Baaz's lessons in Sharh al-Muntaqaa in Ta'if approximately
2 years or less before his death.
