إذَا تَدَاعَتِ القَبَائِلُ فَاضْرِبُوهم بِالسَّيْفِ حَتَّى يصِيرُوا إلى دَعْوَةِ الإسْلاَمِ

{When you see the tribes calling to tribalism then strike them with the sword until they begin to call to Islam instead.}

 

From ‘Umar bin al-Khattaab (may Allah be pleased with him) as related by Ibn Abee Shaybah in al-Musannaf (15/33). And in another narration ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

 

سيكون للعرب دعوى قبائل فإذا كان ذلك فالسيف السيف و القتل القتل حتى يقولوا يا للمسلمين

{The Arabs will begin to call to tribalism so when that happens then the sword! The sword! Fight them until they call instead to the Muslims!}
