Wherever you see Fitnah: RUN!



Wherever you see Fitnah: RUN!


بسم الله والحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله ، وبعد

Allaah تعالى says:

وَلَا تُلْقُوا بِأَيْدِيكُمْ إِلَى التَّهْلُكَةِ

{…and do not throw yourselves into destruction} [Surah al-Baqarah (2): 195]


Yusuf عليه السلام fled from the Fitnah, when the wife of the `Azeez approached him:


وَاسْتَبَقَا الْبَابَ وَقَدَّتْ قَمِيصَهُ مِن دُبُرٍ

{So they raced with one another to the door, and she tore his shirt from the back}. [Surah Yusuf (12): 25]


Before his Prophethood, Moosaa عليه السلام fled from the evil:


فَفَرَرْتُ مِنكُمْ لَمَّا خِفْتُكُمْ

{“So I fled from you when I feared you”} [Surah al-Shu`araa’ (26): 21]


The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم instructed Hudhaifah bin al-Yamaan رضي الله عنه that during the times of Fitan. Hudhaifah said to the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم: What do you order me to do if such a state should take place in my life? He صلى الله عليه وسلم said:


تَلْزَمُ جَمَاعَةَ المُسْلِمِينَ وَإِمَامَهُمْ

“Stick to the group of Muslims and their Imaam (ruler).” Hudhaifah said: If there is neither a group of Muslims nor an Imaam (ruler)? He صلى الله عليه وسلم said:


فَاعْتَزِلْ تِلْكَ الفِرَقَ كُلَّهَا، وَلَوْ أَنْ تَعَضَّ بِأَصْلِ شَجَرَةٍ، حَتَّى يُدْرِكَكَ المَوْتُ وَأَنْتَ عَلَى ذَلِكَ

"Then turn away from all those sects even if you were to bite (eat) the roots of a tree till death overtakes you while you are in that state.” [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (3606, 7084) and Saheeh Muslim (4553)]


Evil effects of Fitan:

Adopted from the Book “Athaar al-Fitan” by Shaikh `Abdul-Razzaaq bin `Abdul Muhsin al-Badr

1. Preoccupies the people and turns them away from `Ibaadah.

2. Turns them away from scholars and seeking knowledge.

3. The foolish take the lead.

4. Whoever exposes himself to Fitnah will perish.

5. Matters become doubtful as truth is mixed with falsehood.

6. Corruption of the youth.

7. Weakness in the bonds of religious brotherhood.

8. The audacity to murder and shed blood.

9. Security is disrupted.

10. Corrupt people get to spread their falsehood.

11. The enemies get an upper hand.
