Fitnah & the Muslim's stance Before, During and After it

بسم الله والحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله ، وبعد

In the Qur’aan, Allaah تعالى mentioned that Moosaa عليه السلام said:

﴿قَالَ رَبِّ لَوْ شِئْتَ أَهْلَكْتَهُم مِّن قَبْلُ وَإِيَّايَ ۖ أَتُهْلِكُنَا بِمَا فَعَلَ السُّفَهَاءُ مِنَّا ۖ إِنْ هِيَ إِلَّا فِتْنَتُكَ تُضِلُّ بِهَا مَن تَشَاءُ وَتَهْدِي مَن تَشَاءُ ۖ أَنتَ وَلِيُّنَا فَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَا ۖ وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ الْغَافِرِينَ﴾

{He (Moosaa عليه السلام) said: O my Lord, if it had been Your Will, You could have destroyed them and me before; would You destroy us for the deeds of the foolish ones among us? IT IS ONLY YOUR TRIAL BY WHICH YOU LEAD ASTRAY WHOM YOU WILL, AND KEEP GUIDED WHOM YOU WILL. You are our Wali (Protector), so forgive us and have Mercy on us, for You are the Best of those who forgive.} [Surah al-A`raaf (7): 155]
