The Sahaba Were Free of Hizbiyyah – Shaykh Saaleh al-Luhaydaan حفظه الله
Our Shaykh, the father, Saaleh al-Luhaydaan was questioned on the morning of Yawmul Ithnayn, the 3rd of Muharram 1436 (coinciding with the 27th of October 2014):
“One of the callers to Islaam in Kuwait stated that even the Sahaba had traits of Hizbiyyah among themselves, citing narrations about the Muhajireen and Ansar as evidence….”
The Shaykh replied:
“This is incorrect and his statement is false. Did the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) not say, ‘Leave this (Hizbiyyah,Tribalism, Nationalism) for indeed it has a terrible smell’, meaning, leave this da’wah to Hizbiyyah. Hence, this caller is mistaken, his speech is false and not upon sound principles.”
