What can Muslims do to eliminate Sunni-Shia hatred?
How can we establish peace between Sunni and Shia Muslims?
To answer these questions, Imam Zaid Shakir starts his talk by narrating a hadith where Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said:
“The likeness of the believers in their mutual love, mercy and affection is like a single body; if one part of the body complains of some injury, all the parts of the body call to each other with sleeplessness and fever.” (Sahih Muslim)
Loneliness and isolation, Imam Zaid Shakir argues, have no place in an ummah of compassion and mercy.
He addresses Sunni-Shia aggression and hatred, which he describes as a disease we must fight.
