Question:

Assalamualykum mufti sahib
In the biography of moulana yusuf kandalvi ra by mufti azzizurahman bijnori  it is written in moulana yusuf ra last speech  mostlly about unity that one sahaabi ra got killed by jinnaats  for causing disunity please elaborate on this please.

Answer:

Bismillah

Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) in the Holy Qur’an has said;

“And hold on to the cord of Allah, all of you and be not divided.”

The rope of Allah means the Holy Quran. This is the view of Saaiduna Abdullah Ibn Masud raḍyAllāhu 'anhu (may Allāh be pleased with him). In short, Muslims must firmly act upon the teachings and remain steadfast on the injunctions of the Holy Qur’an. (Maariful Quran p.135 v.2)

The verse also tells us the importance of unity by Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) commanding us not to cause divisions by refraining from acting upon the Holy Qur’an.

With regards to your question, I am not aware of the aforementioned story of a Companion being killed by Jinn’s for causing disunity, but, one should remember that after all the Prophets, come the Companions in rank. To have love for the Companions is part of Deen and to have hatred and animosity for them is a sign of kufr and hypocrisy.

The Prophet of Allah ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) has said; “The sign of faith is love of the Ansaar and the sign of hypocrisy is the hatred of the Ansaar.” (Sahih Bukhari p.534 v.1)

In another hadith, the Prophet of Allah ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) has said; “Whoever abuses my Companions; upon them is the curse of Allah, the angels and all the people.” (Tabaraani)

Only Allah Knows Best
