The Fitnah of Doubts and Desires

  Imām Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah (d. 751 AH)

Fitnah is of two types: the fitnah of ‘shubuhāt’ (doubts and misunderstandings), this one being the greater fitnah of the two, and the fitnah of ‘shahawāt’ (desires). It is quite possible that (these two fitan) can be present in the ʿabd (servant) at the same time, or one of them may be within him to the exclusion of the other.

  They follow but a guess and that which they themselves desire, whereas there has surely come to them the Guidance from their Lord!” [Sūrah al-Najm, 53:23]
