The Hadiths: 'Fitnah is asleep. May Allah the Curse of Allah be upon the one who wakes it up' and 'Stay away from verdure growing in manure'
Q 3: What is the ruling on the authenticity of these two Hadiths:
Fitnah (sedition or turmoil) is asleep (dormant). May the Curse of Allah be upon the one who wakes it up (stirs it up).
'Stay away from Khadra' Al-Diman (i.e. Verdure growing in manure).' It was asked, 'O Messenger of Allah, what is Khadra' Al-Diman?' He (peace be upon him) replied, 'A beautiful woman of a bad origin.'
The Hadith that reads:
Fitnah is asleep. May the Curse of Allah be upon the one who wakes it up
is mentioned by Al-`Ajluny, the author of Kashf Al-Khafa' who mentioned that
"Al-Rafi`y related it in His book Al-Amaly from
Anas." It was also related by
Al-Suyuty in Al-Jami` Al-Saghir who ranked it as weak.The Hadith that reads: "Stay away from Khadra' Al-Diman" is related by
Ibn `Ady and
Al-Quda`y and others.
Al-Daraqutny said: "There is no authentic narration of it."May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
