O Allah! My Ummah! My Ummah!
Most beloved people by Prophet Muhammad[salle allahu alai hi wa sallam]
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 6791 Narrated byAbuHurayrah
Allah’s Apostle (peace be upon him) said: The people most loved by me from amongst my Ummah would be those who would come after me but everyone amongst them would have the keenest desire to catch a glimpse of me even at the cost of his family and wealth.
In Ummah some people will kill or imprison the others.
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 6904 Narrated byThawban
Allah’s Apostle (peace be upon him) said: Allah drew the ends of the world together for my sake. I have seen its eastern and western ends. The dominion of my Ummah will reach those ends which have been drawn together near me and I have been granted the red and the white treasures. I begged my Lord that my Ummah should not be destroyed by famine, nor be dominated by a foreign enemy who will take their lives and destroy them root and branch. My Lord said: Muhammad, whenever I make a decision, there is none to change it. Well, I grant you that your Ummah will not be destroyed by famine, nor will it be dominated by a foreign enemy who will take their lives and destroy them root and branch, even if all the people from the different parts of the world join hands together (for this purpose). However, it will be from amongst them, viz. your Ummah, that some people will kill or imprison the others.
*Note:This is exactly what is happening from many years either sectarianism/ignorance or Mutual jealousy/rivalry.For Ex:The killing of Sunnites in Iraq by Shiaites.Kuffar play games with Muslims and Muslims due to ignorance harm their brotherhood.
No bloodshed among the people of my Ummah, but He did not grant it
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 6906 Narrated bySa’d ibn AbuWaqqas
One day Allah’s Apostle (peace be upon him) came from a high land. He passed by the mosque of Banu Mu’awiyah, went in and observed two rak’ahs there and we also observed prayer along with him and he made a long supplication to his Lord. He then came to us and said: I asked my Lord three things and He has granted me two but has withheld one. I begged my Lord that my Ummah should not be destroyed because of famine and He granted me this. And I begged my Lord that my Ummah should not be destroyed by drowning (by deluge) and He granted me this. And I begged my Lord that there should be no bloodshed among the people of my Ummah, but He did not grant it.
*Note:After Allah subhanawatala’s command to be undivided,Muslims did divided.Allah subhanawatala commanded not to practice oppression but Muslims did practiced.

O Lord, my Ummah, my Ummah
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 397 Narrated byAbdullah ibn Amr ibn al-‘As
Verily the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) recited the words of Allah, the Great and Glorious, that Ibrahim uttered: My Lord! Lo! they have led many of mankind astray: “But whoso followeth me, he verily is of me” (al-Qur’an, xiv.35), and Jesus (peace be upon him) said: “If thou punisheth them, lo! they are Thy slaves, and if Thou forgiveth them–verily Thou art the Mighty, the Wise” (al-Qur’an, v.117). Then he raised his hands and said: O Lord, my Ummah, my Ummah, and wept. So Allah, the High and the Exalted, said: O Gabriel, go to Muhammad (though your Lord knows it fully well) and ask him: what makes thee weep? So Gabriel (p.) came to him and asked him, and the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) informed him of what he had said (though Allah knew it fully well). Upon this Allah said: O Gabriel, go to Muhammad and say: Verily We shall please thee with regard to your Ummah and shall not displease thee.
My prayer for the intercession of my Ummah
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 96 Narrated byJabir ibn Abdullah
Jabir reported from the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him): For every apostle was a prayer with which he prayed (to his Lord) for his Ummah, but I have reserved my prayer for the intercession of my Ummah on the Day of Resurrection.
A group of people from my Ummah will continue to fight in obedience to the Command of Allah, remaining dominant over their enemies
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 4721 Narrated byUqbah ibn Amir
It has been narrated on the authority of AbdurRahman ibn Shamasah al-Mahri who said: I was in the company of Maslamah ibn Mukhallad, and Abdullah ibn Amr ibn ‘As was with him. Abdullah said: The Hour shall come only when the worst type of people are left on the earth. They will be worse than the people of pre-Islamic days. They will receive whatever they ask of Allah. While we were still sitting, Uqbah ibn Amr came and Maslamah said to him: Uqbah, listen to what Abdullah says. Uqbah said: He knows better so far as I am concerned. I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) say: A group of people from my Ummah will continue to fight in obedience to the Command of Allah, remaining dominant over their enemies. Those who oppose them shall not do them any harm. They will remain in this condition until the Hour overtakes them. (At this) Abdullah said: Yes. Then Allah will raise a wind which will be fragrant like musk and whose touch will be like the touch of silk; (but) it will cause the death of all (faithful) persons, not leaving behind a single person with an iota of faith in his heart. Then only the worst of men will remain to be overwhelmed by the Hour.
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 4715 Narrated byThawban
The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: A group of people from my Ummah will always remain triumphant on the right path and continue to be triumphant (against their opponents). He who deserts them shall not be able to do them any harm. They will remain in this position until Allah’s Command is executed ( i.e. Qayamah is established). In Qutaybah’s version of the tradition, we do not have the words: “They will remain in this position.”
Nothing can be gathered from thorny trees except thorns
Al-Tirmidhi HadithHadith 262 Narrated byAbdullah ibn Abbas
Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said: Verily some from amongst my Ummah will acquire the understanding of religion, recite the Qur’an, and would say: We will go to the men of authority and partake of their worldly (riches) and (then) withdraw from them with our religion. But it can’t be; as nothing can be gathered from thorny trees except thorns, similarly nothing can be gathered by drawing near to them except.. – Muhammad ibn as-Sabbah said: (the same), i.e. sin and vice.

As a single Ummah
Al-Tirmidhi HadithHadith 259 Narrated byAnas ibn Malik
Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said: Do you know who is most generous? They said: Allah and His Messenger know best. Whereupon he said: Allah is the Most Generous, then I am most generous to mankind, and the most generous people after me would be those who will acquire knowledge and then disseminate it. He will come on the Day of Resurrection singly, like a ruler, or he said: As a single Ummah.
Bayhaqi transmitted in Shu’ab al-Iman.
Allah knows best.
