Pearl of Wisdom

was asked by 'Abd al-Muinin al-Ansari, 'Verily some people narrated from the Prophet (SAWA) that he said, The separation of my community is a mercy and they were truthful, so I ask that if their separation is a mercy then is their congregation a chastisement?', to which the Imam replied, 'It is not as you understand it nor as they understood it, actually he meant the saying of Allah, But why should not there go forth a group from each of their sections ... so He commanded them to go forth to the Prophet (SAWA) and to frequent him and learn from him then to return to their people and teach them, so what is meant is [physical] separation from their cities, not separation or difference with regards to the religion of Allah, for verily the religion of Allah is one.'
