Does a Muslim stay away from Fitan At all times?

ال الإمام ابن باز -رحمه الله تعالى- في أحد إملاءاته:

Al Imam Ibn Baaz said in one of his writings:

Understanding the Hadeeth concerning Fitnah (Trials, Tribulations)

From Abdul Azeez Ibn Abdillah Ibn Baaz to the noble brother the Shaikh… may Allah guide him to which he is pleased with and increase him in knowledge and Imaan. Ameen

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuhu,

You letter dates 24/Muharram 1411 has reached me, may Allah make you arrive to his guidance, and I checked all that you mentioned. And it makes me happy to inform you that the Ahadeeth concerning Fitnah and warning from it according to the people of knowledge are the Fitan (trials) where the one who is correct is not known from the one who is wrong and it is upon the believer to stay away from it. And it is what the Prophet meant when he said: The one who is sitting is better than the one who is standing, and the one who is walking is better than the one who is running…
As for the trails where the one who is right is known from the one who is wrong and the oppressor from the oppresed this does not enter in the aforementioned Ahadeeth. But evidences of the Shariah from the book and the Sunnah show that it is compulsory to help the one who is correct and oppressed upon the one who trangresses and oppresses. And from this is what happened between Ali and Mu’awiyah Radiallaho Anhuma. For the one who was correct according to Ahlus Sunnah was Ali and he was a Mujtahid who got two rewards. And Mu’aawiyah and those who were with him were wrong but they were Mujtahidoon, those who looked for the truth, and they have one reward, may Allah be pleased with all of them.

قال الإمام ابن باز -رحمه الله تعالى- في أحد إملاءاته:

(مفهوم الأحاديث المتعلقة بالفتن)

من عبد العزيز بن عبد الله بن باز إلى حضرة الأخ المكرم فضيلة الشيخ : ع ، ح ، خ . وفقه الله لما فيه رضاه وزاده من العلم والإيمان آمين .

سلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته ، أما بعد :

فقد وصلني كتابكم الكريم المؤرخ في 24 / محرم / 1411 هـ وصلكم الله بهداه ، واطلعت على جميع ما ذكرتم .

ويسرني أن أخبركم أن الأحاديث المتعلقة بالفتن والتحذير منها محمولة عند أهل العلم على الفتن التي لا يعرف فيها المحق من المبطل فهذه الفتن المشروع للمؤمن الحذر منها ، وهي التي قصدها النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم بقوله : القاعد فيها خير من القائم والماشي خير من الساعي الحديث .

أما الفتن التي يعرف فيها المحق من المبطل والظالم من المظلوم فليست داخلة في الأحاديث المذكورة بل قد دلت الأدلة الشرعية من الكتاب والسنة على وجوب نصر المحق والمظلوم على الباغي والظالم .

ومن هذا الباب ما جرى بين علي ومعاوية رضي الله عنهما . فإن المصيب عند أهل السنة هو علي وهو مجتهد وله أجران . ومعاوية ومن معه مخطئون وبغاة عليه لكنهم مجتهدون طالبون للحق فلهم أجر واحد رضي الله عن الجميع .
