Is the D'awah strengthened under a hizb (party spirited group)?
Question:

And the speech of some of them: Indeed it is not possible for the Dawah to become strong except that it is under a sect (hizb)?[1]
Answer:

[The Shaykh replied]: We say: that this is not correct; rather the Dawah will indeed be strengthened whenever the individual binds himself to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah His Messenger ( ), following the narrations of the Prophet ( ) and his Rightly-Guided Successors. 2

And the virtuous Shaykh Muhammad bin Saaleh al-Uthaymeen rahimahullaah said:

We say: Indeed this Nation (Ummah) will split into seventy three sects, all of them in the Hellfire except for one then we say that whosoever opposes that which the Prophet ( ) and his companions were upon, then he is included in these sects34
