Evils of Uprising

بسم الله والحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله ، وبعد

Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Saaleh al-`Uthaymeen رحمه الله said:

“Of the many revolutions (which took place), bring me ONE example where the situation of the people became better than before! Can you? You will never be able to (give a single example).”

[Sharh Kitaab al-Siyaam min Kitaab al-Kaafee, Cassette (2), First side.]

A scholar realizes the evils in the Fitan even before it takes place, due to his understanding of the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم. But as for the savage mob, then they only know that they have fallen in the turmoil after they have sunk in the mire.

Al-Hasan al-Basree رحمه الله said:

“When the Fitan is approaching, every scholar knows about it; and when it has gone away, only then do the ignorant ones know it.”

[Ibn Sa`d in Tabaqaat al-Kubraa on the authority of `Afaan bin Muslim (9/166) and its chain is authentic; and also in al-Hilyat al-Awliyaa’ (9/24)]

When the Fitan approaches, no one knows its reality and the harm that is in it except for the sincere scholars; whereas the ignorant are duped by it.
