The People of Fitnah are Only Industrious in Times of Fitnah

Shaykh ʿAbdu-Ilāh Lahmāmī

A response to a question posed to the Shaykh concerning the phenomenon of people raising their heads and voices during times of fitnah, but being silent when it comes to building and spreading the daʿwah.

The Shaykh asks:

Where were you before? Where are you works (masjid, websites, publications, seminars, pamphlets etc.), [and] your efforts to spread and defend the Sunnah? Why is it you are only busy when seeking to destroy, [but] never active seeking to build [the daʿwah]?

The Shaykh goes on to encourage the brothers to reflect on the efforts in the United Kingdom, and how there has been so much activity and progress. Don’t be from those who only cause hatred and turmoil. People can say what they wish, however the reality is clear in the progress [of the daʿwah] around the English speaking world. The criticisms and slander do not impede our communities. On the day of judgement, we will meet the slanderers, in shāʾ Allāh, and it will be good for us. You (fatān) carry on, and we will carry on in shāʾ Allāh, without any desire for praise or thanks from the people.
