When fitan strikes; the true character and values that people possess become manifest. When you being attacked; don’t be surprised if some of the closest to you will choose to sit on the fence, or even side with the fitan & throw you under the bus, in order to protect themselves.
Being principled is a virtue, and we sadly live in an age of decreasing virtues…
Irrespective; we make note of the realities, never lose hope, and never let the values of others define who we are.
May Allah grant us all better than we dream in both worlds. Ameen.
Shaikh Sajid Umar
