The Position of Certain Muslims

 

He said: "I swear by God, Who holds my soul in His hands, that when that time of fitna comes, you will turn into snakes rising to twist each others' necks." (Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 386, no. 672)

 

In this hadith, our Prophet (may God bless him and grant him peace) calls attention to the disagreement among some Muslims. It indicates that in the End Times, some Muslims having status, rank, and power will show hostility to each other instead of joining forces. In other hadiths, our Prophet (may God bless him and grant him peace) also draws attention to such threats as jealousy, envy, and hostility - all of which will be prevalent among Muslims.

 

.... Fitna will appear from right there, from the place where Satan's two horns will rise. Yet you still strike one another's neck. (Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 369, no. 675)

 

 

... if you start competing with one another, feeling jealous of one another, turning your backs or separating and becoming enemies of one another. (Sahih Muslim)

 

 

A time will come when my people will envy one another, just as goats do. (al-Hatim)
