The Worst Fitnah

In ‘Ithaf al-Jama’ah’ (1/25), Hamud at-Tuwayjri mentions that Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr reported that Hudhayfah was asked: “What is the worst fitnah?” So, he replied: “That you are presented with the good and the bad, and you are confused as to which path to take.”

He also reported from Ibn Abi Shaybah in his ‘Musannaf’ that Khalid bin al-Walid said: “Fitnah is that you are in a land in which sins are rampant, and when you seek to leave it for a land in which sins are not rampant, you are unable to find such a place.”

    The confusion also results when scholars fail to speak the haqq or in extreme case they show bara from haqq as in the case of Lal Masjid

    Ameen we are in it so we have to work harder to establish Shariah and re establish the Khalifah through all means possible especially Jihad fee sabililah to obtain a way of life that is noble and not a awakening to humiliation each day
