Patriotism ( love of a person for His/Her country) , in my opinion is a natural sentiment. I want to know what are the views of Islam on this.
Is it considered against the concept of "Ummah"?
The crux of what I understand is that the basis of Nationhood for Muslims is Islam i.e All the Muslims are one Nation. I have read a Hadith in my college book which says:
All the muslims are brother among themseleves
Do we have any other Ayahs / Hadiths to support this or Am I missing something?
In the world of today we see many political agreements involving Muslims countries in which the benefit of country is taken care of and that of Ummah is ignored.
What should be given preference "The Country" or "The Ummah" ? or do we have some some conditions regarding what to prefer?
