“Do not come close to the fires of fitna, and when the fitna comes to an end, do not interfere or rekindle it; and when the fitna is in progress (is raging) then be patient”. (Tibrani)
The above guidance is a very important lesson for us, especially nowadays as we witness onslaught of fitnas from all directions. During these trying and difficult times, that person who remains aloof from the “heat” of the fitnas, is saved.
As human beings we live in communities and are thus inseparable members of that society. Subsequently, when and if that society is struck by a “volcano” of some fitna, and the burning hot “larva” goes berserk “burning” the ummah to “ashes” --- then remain at a distance from that dangerous and devastating “magma chamber”.
At this critical juncture, nothing, but the wonderful advices of our beloved Nabi-e-Akram (Salallahu alayhi wa Sallam), can save us!.
