Ibn Masūd:

There are people who recite the Qurān yet it doesn’t descend beyond their throats; were it to reach the heart & take root therein, it is then that it would benefit.

- Muslim, no. 822

Shaykh ul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said:

“The state of a place reflects the state of a person. It is possible to be sometimes a Muslim and at other times a disbeliever; sometimes sincere and at other times hypocritical; sometimes good and pious and at other times rotten and corrupt. Thus, a person becomes like the place of his abode. The migration of a person from a land of disbelief and profanity to one of faith and probity is an expression of repentance and of his turning away from disobedience and perversion to belief and obedience. This is so until the Day of Resurrection.”

~ Majmoo’ ul-Fataawaa, 18/284

Imaam of Yemen, Muqbil bin Haadee Al-Waadi’ee, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said:

“And verily the Muslims today have been tested with hizbiyyah, (the hizbiyyah) that corrupted a lot of the youth and divided the unity of the Muslims, and the Lord of Honour and Power says,

And hold on to the rope of Allaah all together and do not be divided (amongst yourselves)”

Al-Imraan-103

Verily the believers are nothing more than brothers

– Al-Hujaraat:10

O you who believe! Let not a group scoff at another group, it may be that the latter are better than the former, nor women scoff at other women, it may be that the latter are better than the former...”

Al-Hujaraat-11

And the Hizbiyoon, whoever is not with them they abandon and keep away from him, and La Ilaaha Illa Allah! How many of the youth have become corrupted because of Hizbiyyah, he may have memorized the Qur’aan, excellent in the sciences of the Religion, and if he affiliates with them, they busy him with nonsense and falsehood to the extent that his knowledge leaves (him).

And people split up into two groups, the party of the Most Gracious and the party of Satan, just as Allah informed us in His Book.”
