Causes of Conflict and Instability

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Security and stability do not materialize [in a region] unless religious and ideological stability are in place [first]. So a land in which sectarian groups and deviated ways of thinking are many is fertile ground for instability, disorder, and conflict.
