Do they then seek after a judgment of (the days of) ignorance? But who, for a people whose faith is assured, can give better judgment than Allah?
The Days of Ignorance were the days of tribalism,
feuds and selfish accentuation of differences in man.
Those days are really not yet over.
It is the mission of Islam to take us away from that false
mental attitude, towards the true attitude of Unity. If our
Faith is certain (and not merely a matter of words). Allah
will guide us to that Unity.
