When Sectarianism Leads to Atheism

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

Among the reasons atheism spread in Europe is the conflict [that occurred] within the Church between Catholics and Protestants, which made people hate the religion and [hate] those who ascribed themselves to it.

So is the emergence of religious sects and the conflicts between them among the causes of the atheism that has spread among some of the children of Islam?!

They must then duly fear Allāh, all who’ve marred the [portrayal] of Islam and turned [people] away from it.

And he must duly fear Allāh, every Muslim, in [the matter of] his religion.
