Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullah) said, "The Religion is aided when put to the test. So do not be amazed, for this is the way of Ar-Rahmaan (Allah)."
Allah said (what means),
“And so are the days (good and not-so good), We give to men by turns, that Allah may test those who believe, and that He may take martyrs from among you. And Allah likes not the Dhaalimoon (polytheists and wrong-doers). And that Allah may test (or purify) the believers (from sins) and destroy the disbelievers. [Soorah Aali 'Imraan: 140-141]
This is the wisdom behind the occurrence of Fitan and test, so that the believers are purified. And so that they are made to exercise patience, be firm upon the truth and warned of their mistakes; in order that they may repent to Allah('Azza Wa Jall), and that the kuffaar are destroyed.
Therefore, (Fitnah and test) is purification for the believers and destruction for the kuffaar, Wa lillaahil-hamd.
And upon the Muslim is that he looks at (the affairs) with optimism. He should neither look at history and the state of affairs with pessimism and hopelessness, and causing the people to lose hope.
And in the hadeeth, “Whoever says, the people are ruined, then he himself is ruined.” [Muslim]
Therefore, the person neither loses hope in Allah's Mercy nor does he make people lose hope of solace from Allah.
So, whoever wants to save himself at the time of these Fitan and evils, then he should not move away from what the Muslims and their leader are holding onto; rather he must exercise patience along with them. And even if he is afflicted with difficulties, he still exercises patience until Allah(Jalla Wa 'alaa) brings about Solace. This is the path to safety from Fitan.
Taken from Shaykh Fawzaan’s Explanation of the Hadeeth of Hudhayfah Ibn Yamaan “We were in a state of Jaahiliyyah”
Shaykh Taamir Fatooh (hafidhahullah) will outline the guidelines the Muslim should return to in times of fitnah according to the Book and Sunnah and by the Permission of Allah, we will all benefit from the words of the Shaykh.
We ask Allah, Ar-RahmaanAr-Raheem to make us from those who, when they are given, are thankful, when they are tested, are patient, and when they sin, seek forgiveness.
