The Divine Message does not divide humanity as falsely claimed by secularists

"Mankind were one community, and Allah sent (unto them) prophets as bearers of good tidings and as warners, and revealed therewith the Scripture with the truth that it might judge between mankind concerning that wherein they differed. And only those unto whom (the Scripture) was given differed concerning it, after clear proofs had come unto them, through hatred one of another. And Allah by His Will guided those who believe unto the truth of that concerning which they differed. Allah guideth whom He will unto a straight path." (2:213) Surah Al-Baqrah

The above verse is a direct response to the bizarre claim of many secular critics and Islamophobes. Offline, online and on television it's commonplace to watch and hear the belligerent critcs, on the basis of their very limited perception, blaming the Divine Monotheistic Faith for being the cause of creating divisions between people and societies. Modern atheists and agnostics babble to the affect that life was peaceful prior to Religion, and they hold Faith responsible for all upheavels, violence and intolerance. Some even refer to the Divine Faith as a "pawn." They harbor these strange and senseless notions because they analyse matters only at face value. Probably they fear understanding matters at depth as it would expose the discrepancies of their thoughts even to themselves.

The Glorious Quran, which Allah Almighty has confirmed to be "perfected" and "completed" as stated in Verse 5:3 of Surah Al-Maidah, is truly perfect & complete as it doesn't omit nor ignore a single aspect that influences our lives.

In Verse, 2:213 of Surah Al-Baqrah quoted at the beginning of this post, Allah Almighty has discussed precisely that issue which disbelievers today misunderstand and misinterpret. As stated by the Divine Power in Verse 2:213, yes it's true that humankind began getting divided after Allah began sending His Message of Truth about His existence and the light of guidance to humanity. That's when communities began to pick and choose the laws that suited them and rejecting what they personally disliked. They began forming groups, sects, tribes etc. out of enemity and hostility of one another. Such an outcome is a manifestation of their own superficial values and lack of guidance that often make it difficult for them to comprehend the Divine Message in the right perspective. Hence, the Divine Message that upholds kindness, forgivness, justice and mutual consultation among individuals/communities is misconstrued by misguided minds to the opposite. What's worse is that their misunderstandings are dubbed as the 'teachings of Faith.' There are exceptions too, those with wisdom who are able to grasp the Message correctly for the benefit of their own souls. These are the deserving in the Sight of Allah, those whom He considers worthy of His guidance and who do not find themselves confused nor consumed by hate. They are much fewer in number but they are there.

The dictate to stop using Faith to condone violations has been referred to directly in Verse 2:224 of the Glorious Quran.

"And make not Allah, by your oaths, a hindrance to your being righteous and observing your duty unto Him and making peace among mankind. Allah is Hearer, Knower." (2:224) Surah Al-Baqrah

One who blames Faith for creating divisions among humankind only displays their own lack of judgment and shallow perception. If mankind is careless enough to misunderstand and defame Faith for their own selfish reasons, the problem lies squarely with them for which they will be responsible and answerable to Allah. This does not mean that Allah Almighty should refrain from sending His Message to humanity for their guidance and with information of the Ultimate Truth.
