Protection from foolishness In English

O Allah, I seek refuge in You lest I misguide others , or I am misguided by others , lest I cause others to err or I am caused to err , lest I abuse others or be abused, and lest I behave foolishly or meet with the foolishness of others.
Abu Dawud: 5094, Ibn Majah: 3884


Madness, in one of its many connotations, is the opposite of abstention. It refers to the impetuousness of a person: his temperament and his indiscretion, even for insignificant questions, as well as a thirst for quick revenge, punishment and insults. There is no doubt that weakness of mind is the cause.
Foolishness manifests itself in religious and worldly affairs; as for the first, this is indicated by the verses (which signify): · {And our fool spoke of Allah from excessive transgression.} [Quran 27: 4] ·
{The fools of the people will say, “What removed them from their Qiblah, to which they were confronted?” Say, “To Allah belongs the East and the West, He guides those whom He wills on a straight path.”} [Quran 2: 142] Commenting on the last verse, As-Suddi, may Allah have mercy on him, said that “the foolish” refers to unbelievers, hypocrites, and Jews. The circumstances surrounding this revelation were that Allah, the Almighty, had commanded the Prophet, sallallahuah’alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention), and the Muslims to change their Qiblah (prayer direction) of the Al Mosque.
-Aqsa in Jerusalem ‘bah in Mecca. Thus, the disbelievers said, “Muhammad has returned to our Qiblah and soon he will return to our religion He knows we are on the truth.
” As for the hypocrites, they said, “If his first Qiblah was true, then his new direction is false, or vice versa.
” The Jews, for their part, said, “He has abandoned the Qiblah of the previous prophets, if he had been a prophet, he would not have done it.” All these allegations undeniably prove how stupid and weak these people were. They have ignored the fact that Allah, the Almighty, disposes of the affairs of his slaves the way he wants, and that he belongs to the east and west; In truth, he guides who he wants on the right path.

In this context, the foolish man is one who has a mediocre intellect and is likely to commit sins. The devil deceives him, enslaves him to tyranny and perpetually disobeys him.
When Allah the Almighty commanded people to believe in Him, some of them said, as He quotes the Almighty, saying (what means): {Should we believe as fools have believed? } which means:
{Without a doubt, they are idiots, but they do not know it.} [Quran 2:13] Indeed, if they had the healthy mind and good judgment, they would have realized that what they were called to, was the truth. As for stupidity in the affairs of the world, it denotes the inability to manage one’s affairs, fatuity and illogical actions.
An example of this is when an idiot wastes his money and becomes unable to properly manage his wealth.
Allah the Almighty has warned against giving money to those who are mad and to spend it logically or Islamically unacceptable. Allah the Almighty says (meaning): {And do not give your feeble-minded property, which Allah has made for you a means of sustenance.} [Quran 4: 5]


The years of disappointment

When fools start to take the initiative and speak on behalf of the Ummah, it will announce the years for which the Prophet, sallallahuar alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention), warned us about the time when he said: “on people of deceitful years, in which the liar will be considered truthful and the truthful will be considered liar, the honest will be considered dishonest, while the dishonest will be considered honest, and Ar-Ruwaybidhah will speak.” Companions , may Allah be pleased with them, asked, “Who are the Ar-Ruwaybidhah?” The Prophet, sallallahuar alayhi wa sallam (may Allaah exalt his mention), replied: “[It is the] imbeciles who comment on the affairs of the public.” [Ibn Maajah and Ahmad]
In addition, the Prophet, sallallahuah’alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention), warned us against the leadership of imprudent people. Jaabir ibn ‘Abdullaah, may Allah be pleased with him, said that the Prophet, sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention), told Ka’b ibn’ Ujrah, may Allah be pleased with him “May Allah protect him from the direction of the fool” Ka’b, may Allah be pleased with him, asked, “What is meant by the guidance of fools?” The Prophet, sallallahuar’alayhi wa sallam (may Allaah exalt his mention), replied, “This is the authority of] leaders who will come after me; they will neither follow my advice nor conform to my sunnah. Those who believe in their lies and support them in their oppression are neither me nor me. [In the Hereafter], they will not come to my Hawdh (basin). As for those who do not accept their lie as a truth and do not help them in their tyranny, they belong to me and me too, and they will come to my Hawdh. “[An-Nasaa’i and At-Tirmithi]

Avoid the insane

Avoiding fools and not socializing with such people is the best way to avoid their injuries. However, if a person is tested by their company, they must be patient and tolerant towards them.
Umayr ibn Khumaashah, may Allaah have mercy on him: “O my sons, take care to sit with madmen, for it is a sickness, and he who will tolerate them will be pleased [with his attitude] and he who answers them will A person who can not even bear any harm from the fool of life will have to take a lot worse [if he tries to avoid it].
” In addition, Ash-Shaafi ‘may Allah grant mercy to him, he wrote verses of poetry that explain how to treat the foolishly with indulgence is the best way to avoid their wounds.
