Different active religious groups in the subcontinent such as Deobandı̇̄, Brelvı̇̄, Jamaat-e-Islamı̇̄, Dawat-e-Islāmı̇̄, Ahl-alhādı̇̄th and Shı̇̄a are the main sects. A group of people rather than one person can be called a sect. The term sect is used literally to refer to groups, congregations, families and tribes. The formation of parties or organizations to attain different goals or establish a single party for a particular purpose is not wrong and harmful according to Shari'āh but in the Qur’ān sectarianism and factionalism are considered flawed and prevented from doing so because these destroys the unity of the Ummah. And creates disunity and division among the Muslims as a result of which their power is lost. In the Holy Qur’ān, the words, "وَّلَا تَفَرَّقُوْا" forbid this sectarianism, as is the case with the Ummah at present time. There are defenses against each other and Muslim countries are fighting against themselves. The claim of each of the different parties or sects in the world and Pakistan in particular is that they are the representative of Islam and the preacher of the Qur’ān and Sunnah but it is not about names or sects because no one can stop sectarianism formation and organization of groups. Everyone has the right to preach the religion and to establish their organization or group on the basis of the Qur’ān and Sunnah but the problem arises when an ordinary Muslim hears or reads everyone’s claims. It is difficult to decide who to support or accept. It is not easy for a person to make this decision about multitude of sects but like other problems, one should turn to the Holy Qur’ān and Hadı̇̄th to solve this problem. Among these sects and parties whose names are well-known in our society are Brelvı̇̄, and Deobandı̇̄ sect in the subcontinent. Jurisprudentially, Brelvı̇̄, and Deobandı̇̄ both are Hanafı̇̄. In this research article we analyses the two prominent Exegesis of each sect Brelvi and Deobandı̇̄ written in the 21st Century.
