In the Name of God, the most Gracious, the most merciful.

Question -There is a frequent question these days, that is, to whom the rulings of Islam may apply? Should all Sunni, Shia and the other sects agree with the Islamic rulings?

A person bearing testimony to the oneness of god and prophethood of Muhammad 6(PBUH) is a Muslim, unless they feel and show hatred and enmity towards the Prophet’s divine household.

The Shia of the divine household of the prophet are commanded to treat all Muslim with respect, warmth, and friendship.

And they should attend the Muslims’ congregational prayers and funeral ceremonies, visit them if they get sick, and refrain from any animosity and strife with the Muslim, as this is exactly what the enemies of Islam wish for.

The Shiite should respect all religions and be aware of the seditions of the enemies of Islam, as the enemies fear the Islamic awakening.

قال الله تعالي: {وَ اعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعاً وَ لا تَفَرَّقُوا وَ اذْكُرُوا نِعْمَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ كُنْتُمْ أَعْداءً فَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِكُمْ فَأَصْبَحْتُمْ بِنِعْمَتِهِ إِخْواناً...} (آل عمران: 103)

"And hold fast, all together, by the Rope which Allah stretches out for you, and be not divided among yourselves; and remember with gratitude Allah's favor on you; for you were enemies and He joined your hearts in love, so that by His grace, ye became brethren. (Al-i-Imran: 103)".

اللهم انصر الاسلام واهله واخذل الکفر واهله.

"May God assist Islam and the Muslims, and degrade heresy and the heretics".

Accusing Muslims of heresy and murdering and plundering their properties is religiously forbidden and is considered as a great sin.

{مَنْ قَتَلَ نَفْساً بِغَيْرِ نَفْسٍ أَوْ فَسادٍ فِي الأَْرْضِ فَكَأَنَّما قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعاً}. (مائده: 32)

"If any one slew a person-unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land it would be as if he slew the whole people."
