Pledge of Mutual Respect and Cooperation Between Sunni Muslim

Someone asked me if I agree with this pledge. My response “What’s not to agree with?”

Pledge of Mutual Respect and Cooperation Between Sunni Muslim
Scholars, Organizations, and Students of Sacred Knowledge
Hold fast to the Rope of Allah, all together, and be not divided. (Qur’an, 3:103)
Surely, those who have made divisions in their religion and turned into factions, you
have nothing to do with them. Their case rests with Allah; then He will inform them of
what they used to do. (Qur’an, 6:159)
In light of the Divine Word, we recognize that the historical nature of Sunni Islam is a
broad one that proceeds from a shared respect for the Qur’an and Sunnah, a shared
dependence on the interpretations and derivations of the Companions (may Allah be
pleased with them), and a shared respect for the writings of a vast array of scholars who
have been identified by their support for and affiliation with the Sunni Muslims and have
been accepted as the luminaries of Sunni Islam – as broadly defined.
