Applicable Advice for the Middle East “Revolt” – The Principles for Avoidance of Trials and Tribulations

Apr 30 2011 Published Under Aqeedah, Social Issues, Terrorism and Extremism, The Sunnah

Sheikh ‘Abd ar Razzaaq bin ‘Abdil Muhsin al Badr.

It has been confirmed from the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم that he said:

إِنَّ السَّعِيدَ لَمَنْ جُنِّبَ الْفِتَنَ

“Indeed the fortunate one is he who is spared from trials and tribulations.”

Reported by Abu Dawood and others

by way of al Miqdaad bin al Aswad رضي الله عنه

Consequently many of those who have zeal and sincerity for the religion, who desire for themselves and the Ummah of Islam loftiness and dignity, ask how is it acquired, how is it achieved? How can a Muslim safeguard and protect himself from trials and tribulations, while being secure from their harm, evil and danger? Because everyone who is zealous and sincere does not wish trials and tribulations for himself or the Ummah, due to the sincerity that lies in his heart for himself and the worshippers of Allah – following the example in the saying of the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم:

الدِّينُ النَّصِيحَةُ قُلْنَا لِمَنْ قَالَ لِلَّهِ وَلِكِتَابِهِ وَلِرَسُولِهِ وَلِأَئِمَّةِ الْمُسْلِمِينَ وَعَامَّتِهِمْ

“The Deen [religion] is sincerity. We [the companions] said: ‘to whom oh Messenger of Allah?’ He said to Allah, His Book, His Messenger, the leaders of the Muslims and the common folk among them.”

Reported by Muslim
