The meaning of turning away in the Hadith related by Hudhayfah
Q 2: How can we understand and act according to the Hadith which was narrated on the authority of
Hudhayfah ibn Al-Yaman
(may Allah be pleased with him) and was related by
in Kitab Al-Fitan (Book of Tribulations), Chapter on "If there is neither a Muslim Community nor an Imam (ruler)"?What
did the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) mean when he said to
(may Allah be pleased with him) "turn away" when there is neither a Muslim Community nor an Imam?
There are many kinds of Fitnahs (trials). The Prophet (peace be upon him) meant to avoid the causes of Fitnah and evil. A person should call to the truth and act according to it. You have to choose the group which will draw you closer to goodness and cooperate with them in righteousness and piety hoping for Istiqamah (integrity) and safety from evil.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
