FLEEING FROM FITNAH




By
Ibn Abdillah As-sudaisiy Al-Iloori

A good friend of mine wanted to share some of the audios with me, I declined it in order to avoid being actively involved in the fitnah. My advice is that we stop sharing audios of rifts between scholars and students of knowledge to cause division in the ummah, it is a sign of reminants of the period of jaahiliyyah in our society. Let's spend our precious time on knowledge and action upon knowledge.

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال:

(سَتَكُونُ فِتَنٌ ، الْقَاعِدُ فِيهَا خَيْرٌ مِنْ الْقَائِمِ ، وَالْقَائِمُ فِيهَا خَيْرٌ مِنْ الْمَاشِي ، وَالْمَاشِي فِيهَا خَيْرٌ مِنْ السَّاعِي ، وَمَنْ يُشْرِفْ لَهَا تَسْتَشْرِفْهُ ، وَمَنْ وَجَدَ مَلْجَأً أَوْ مَعَاذًا فَلْيَعُذْ بِهِ ) 

رواه البخاري (3601) ومسلم (2886)

It was reported from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), that the Prophet (Blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: 

“There will be tribulations during which one who sitting is better than one who is standing, and one who standing is better than one who is walking, and one who is walking is better than one who is running. He who exposes himself to them will be drawn to them and whoever find a refuge from them, let him seek protection therein.” [Narrated by al-Bukhaari (3601) and Muslim (2886)]

Al-Haafiz Ibn Hajar (رحمه الله), commenting on the meaning of this hadeeth said: 

"The words “He who exposes himself to them” mean, the one who wants to find out about them and does not want to ignore them. “will be drawn to them” means: they will destroy him, because he will expose himself to destruction because of them. “whoever find a refuge from them” means a place where he may seek refuge from the evil (of these turmoils). “let him seek protection therein” means: let him withdraw to that place so that he may be safe from the evil of the turmoil." [Fath al-Baari (13/30)]

May Allah guide us aright.
