Video description: A lecture (held in Middlesbrough, UK, in early 2011) based upon the following well-known ayah in the Qur’an which many people and groups quote and claim to follow:
“And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of Allah (i.e. this Quran), and be not divided among yourselves, and remember Allah’s Favour on you, for you were enemies one to another but He joined your hearts together, so that, by His Grace, you became brethren (in Islamic Faith), and you were on the brink of a pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus Allah makes His Ayat clear to you, that you may be guided.”
[Quran, Chapter 3, verse 103, Muhsin Khan and Hilali translation]
Ustadh Abu Idrees Muhammad bin Aslam Khan addresses the following:
What is the true understanding of this verse?
How do we come together and what is the methodology of coming together?
How do we hold onto that rope?
The lecture is based upon the speech of Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzan (hafidhahullah), and that is taken from mandhuma (poem) of Ibn Abi Dawud as-Sijistani (rahimahullah).
A book explaining this famous poem is available here:
