As for those who divide their religion and break up into sects, thou hast no part in them in the least: their affair is with Allah: He will in the end tell them the truth of all that they did.
Yusuf Ali writes,
Divide their religion: farraqu: i.e.,
- make a distinction between one part of it and
another, take the part which suits them and reject
the rest; or
- have religion one day of the week and the world the
rest of the six days; or
- keep “religion in its right place,” as if it did not claim
to govern the whole life; make a sharp distinction
between the secular and the religious; or
- show a sectarian bias, seek differences in views, so
as to break up the unity of Islam.
