Time to think to kill your will

                                         I shall rise and shine  
In the name of Allah,the most merciful and beneficent
Days back I thought to write a blog which is important to write and I think of it as my responsibility although I still need  a lot to study as well on this debatable issue but I feel that I should actually open up a debate by sharing what I know.
Khwajirites:
This is what I really want to talk about that made us all to think what is happening all around us.After the Peshawer attack on my school branch,children wearing the same uniform as I used to wear,holding the same badges on their chest as I used to hold on my chest,ready to rise as I used to,made me to talk and write about this.
Definition:
The word "khwajirites" mean 'the one who is exiled from the booundries of the religion" or "the one who is expelled from the institution of the deen".It originates from the arabic word "Kharij" meaning to expel.It is used for  a group of people who were expelled from the Islam 1400 years back
According to one of the hadiths,it's summary is about this
After one of the holy wars Prophet PBUH distributed the Maal-e-ganeemat among the people and from these one person stood up and (nazoobiallah) argued with the Prophet PBUH that he PBUH didn't distribute all the stuff with justice.At that time other Sahaba R.A asked Prophet PBUH to make him to earn what he diserve for such disobediance (to kill to death)but Prophet PBUH stopped them and said that this person all his upcoming generations are expelled from ISLAM although this person and his descendents will have loads of good deeds and their tounges will always recite the verses of holy Quran.
(May Allah forgive me if I made mistake in interpretation)
Historical background:
In 657, Hazrat Alī's RA forces met Hazrat Muʿāwiyah's RA at the Battle of Siffin this was the first civil war of muslims then Hazrat Muʿāwiyah RA offered an arbitration with Hazrat Ali to resolve the matter according to the will of Quran.At that time there was a group in the Hazrat Ali RA army who was against this arbitration because acording to them it is against the verse of Quran "The decision is only for Allah "(Qur'an 6:57),which the Kharijites interpreted to mean that the outcome of a conflict can only be decided in battle (by God) and not in negotiations (by human beings).From their on the first  group of khwajirites evolve.
Doctrinal  differences:
The differences between the Sunni, Shiʿa, and the Kharijites are the following:
Sunnis accept Ali as the fourth rightly guided Caliph, and also accept the three Caliphs before him, who were elected by their community. Shi'a believe that the imaamate was the right of Ali, and the rule of the first three Rashidun caliphs was unlawful. Kharijites insist that any Muslim could be a leader of the Muslim community and had the right to revolt against any ruler who deviated from their interpretation of Islam.[citation needed]
Kharijites reject the doctrine of infallibility for the leader of the Muslim community, in contrast to Shi'a but in agreement with Sunnis.[10]
Analysis by modern scholars:
Modern-day Islamic scholar Abul Ala Maududi wrote an analysis of Kharijite beliefs, marking a number of differences between Kharijism and Sunni Islam. The Kharijites believed that the act of sinning is analogous to Kufr (disbelief) and that every grave sinner was regarded as a Kāfir (disbeliever) unless he repents. With this argument, they denounced all the above-mentioned Ṣaḥābah and even cursed and used abusive language against them. Ordinary Muslims were above-mentioned Ṣaḥābah as believers and considered them as religious leaders, even inferring Islamic jurisprudence from the Hadeeth narrated by them. [9] They also believed that it is not a must for the caliph to be from the Quraysh. Any pious Muslim nominated by other Muslims could be an eligible caliph.[9] Additionally, Kharijites believed that obedience to the caliph is binding as long as he is managing the affairs with justice and consultation, but if he deviates, then it becomes obligatory to confront him, demote him and even kill him. [9] Regarding Islamic law, the Kharijites considered the Qur'an as the source for Islamic jurisprudence but regarding the other two sources (Hadith and Ijma) their concepts were different from ordinary Muslims
Note that it is very important to accept the concept of ijma that is clear from an example that today we muslims perform our religious deeds based upon the movement of moon what if that few years later we start to settle on the moon which is not so difficult and impossible in todays world then what will muslims do then if they do not have an ijma.
