Yasir Qadhi: Reflections on the hadith of 73 sects

One of the most oft-commented tradition of our ​Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) that is echoed from the mimbars of every Masjid and the focus point of many conversations of our over-zealous youth is the following hadith:

“My Ummah will divide into seventy-three sects all of which except one will go to the Fire, and they (i.e. the Saved Sect) are those who are upon what I and My Companions are upon.”

Yet many questions arise. Are the majority of the Ummah misguided?! And is every ‘deviation’ automatically bound to the Fire of Hell? And which group is the Saved Sect? Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi answers these crucial questions and more, in this latest lecture.
