From The Greatest Causes of Fitna


Our shaykh [Meaning Ibn Taymiyyah] said :

The general of the trials and tribulations (fitna) which have occured : the greatest of their reason is a decrease of Patience.

And as such : Fitna has two reasons:

1. Weakness of knowledge or
2. Weakness of Patience

Indeed ignorance and transgression are the causes of evil.

And the doer of evil; he will do it due to :

his ignorance that the actions is indeed evil [and harmful]
Or due to the fact that his soul wants to do that.

Therefore, by Knowledge ; ignorance ceases , and by Patience; he can hold back the desires.

And thus the fitna will end.

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
