Bundle of Sticks

A MAN had four sons who were always quarrelling amongst themselves. He continuously tried to show them the error of their ways, but they refused to listen.
One day, he got a bundle of thick sticks and asked each son to try individually to break the sticks. All four failed.
The man then got them to do it together, and they made short work of the lot.
With unity comes strength. The Holy Qur’aan says, "And hold fast, all of you, to the Rope of Allah (ie this Qur’an), and be not divided among yourselves.."
In these times, when every Muslim is a target, there is all the more reason to set aside our differences, no matter how strongly we feel about them.
Infighting breeds weakness.
