The Fitan Will Be Presented To The Hearts – [O Allaah! Protect Us]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Hudhaifa [radiyallaahu-anhu] reported that the Messenger of Allaah [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] said: “Tribulation will be presented to the hearts of people like a reed mat woven stick by stick and any heart afflicted by them will have a black mark put into it, but any heart that rejects them will have a white mark put into it. Thus there will be two kinds of hearts: one is pure like a white gemstone and it will not be harmed by any tribulation as long as the heavens and earth endure, and the other is black and dusty like a worn-out vessel, neither recognizing good nor rejecting evil, but rather immersed in its desires.” [Sahih Muslim 144]

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim [rahimahullaah] said: The Fitan [tribulations] that will be presented to the hearts are the cause of their sickness; and they are the Fitan of Shahawaat [evil desires] and the Fitan of Shubuhaat [those affairs that are made to resemble the truth but are falsehood in reality]; the Fitan of Ghay and Dalaal [being led astray in knowledge and intent and misguided in knowledge and creed]; the Fitan of Ma’aasee and Bidah [disobedience and innovation in religion]; and the Fitan of Dhulm and Jahl [injustice and ignorance]. The first affair [i.e. the Fitan of Shahawaat] necessitates corruption in one’s intent and desire, and the second affair [i.e. the Fitan of Shubuhaat] necessitates corruption in one’s knowledge and creed.
