"And fear the Fitnah (affliction and trial) which affects not in particular those of you who do wrong, and know that Allah is Severe in punishment." [al-Anfal: 25]

‘The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘Do you see what I can see? I see the places of tribulation amidst your homes just like the places of raindrops as they fall (on the earth).’ [al-Bukhari]

In his introduction to this book, Shaykh al-Muqaddam states:

“… Indeed tribulations are like accumulated clouds, coming one after another engulfing people in total blindness and deafness, just like the dark pieces of the night or the clashes of the deep waves. In it, the minds of the people are seized and their hearts die, except the one whom Allah protects.

It is from the guidance of the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam), which is the best of guidance that there should be preparation for tribulations before they fall by arming ourselves with knowledge and insight (basirah), with good deeds, Ijtihad (struggling to distinguish the truth) and preparation for the Day of Reckoning – so that we can be aware of sins, soften our hearts, wake up from our heedlessness and take advantage of the occasion before the sudden arrival of Fitan and its terrors.”

Some selected chapters of this book ‘Basa’ir fil Fitan’ have been translated and compiled here, hopefully aiding us with insight into this vast and important topic. May Allah grant us salvation from the Fitan of this world and endow us with knowledge, wisdom and correct action which aids us and keeps us steadfast when trials, tribulations and calamities befall. Amin
