Hadith Debates: With this I commanded you? To argue?

Abu Sa’id al-Khudri reported: We were sitting in front of the door of the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, and we were debating, bringing this verse and bringing this verse. The Prophet came out to us red with anger, as if a pomegranate seed had burst on his face. The Prophet said, “O these people! Is it with this I sent you? With this I commanded you? Do not return to unbelief after me by striking the necks of each other!

عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ قَالَ كُنَّا جُلُوسًا عَلَى بَابِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ نَتَذَاكَرُ يَنْزِعُ هَذَا بِآيَةٍ وَيَنْزِعُ هَذَا بِآيَةٍ فَخَرَجَ عَلَيْنَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ كَأَنَّمَا تَفَقَّأَ فِي وَجْهِهِ حَبُّ الرُّمَّانِ فَقَالَ يَا هَؤُلاءِ أَبِهَذَا بُعِثْتُمْ أَمْ بِهَذَا أُمِرْتُمْ لا تَرْجِعُوا بَعْدِي كُفَّارًا يَضْرِبُ بَعْضُكُمْ رِقَابَ بَعْضٍ
