Protection from trials and tribulation – Shaykh Fawzaan
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
We advise you firstly with the taqwa of Allah and making plentiful supplication that Allah makes us and you firm upon the religion of islaam. And that he protects us and you from the evil of trials and tribulation. Then we advise you to seek knowledge from the ppl of knowledge and being ardent upon that. For indeed nothing protects from fitnah -by the permission of Allaah- except correct knowledge.
But if there is no correct knowledge then maybe you will fall into trials and you will not realise, and you will not know that they are trials. Therefore upon you (all) is to seek knowledge from ahlul ilm and not to be lackadaisical about seeking knowledge however you are able.
