A Time When Following the Prophet will be Despised

A Time When Following the Prophet will be Despised

Translated

By

Abbas Abu Yahya

Sahl bin Abdullaah -Rahimahullaah- said:

‘It is upon you to adhere to the Athar [narrations] and the Sunnah, since indeed I fear a time will come shortly, that when a person will mention the Prophet -sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam- and to follow him in all his circumstances, then the people will dispraise him, run away from him, be free of him, humiliate him and belittle him.’

[Tafseer al-Qurtubi 7/139]

قال سهل بن عبدالله رحمه الله :

“عليكم بالأثر والسنة فإني أخاف أنه سيأتي عن قليل زمان إذا ذكر إنسان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم والاقتداء به في جميع أحواله ذموه ونفروا عنه وتبرؤوا منه وأذلوه وأهانوه”.

[تفسير القرطبي (139/7)]
