We live in an age of paradox. There is no shortage of information and misinformation available on the Internet. Sometimes, even within the “safe spaces” which we go to for enlightenment, we become confused with “new” religious theories.
Today more than ever, we see the actualisation of the hadith:
عن أنس عن النبي (ص) أنه قال: «يأتي على الناس زمان الصابر منهم على دينه كالقابض على الجمرة
It has been narrated from Anas from the Prophet, prayers of Allah be upon him and his family, that he said, “A time will come upon humanity that remaining on their religion will be like holding hot coals in their hands.”
