Whenever a fitnah arose in the past centuries of Islam, whether in the era of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), the Khulafaa-e-Raashideen, or in the eras that followed, there always existed a group of the Ummah who stood for the defence of Islam. They were prepared to sacrifice their wealth and property, as well as to lay down their lives for the protection and preservation of the Deen of Islam.

In the era of Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), the Roman and Persian emperors, Kisra and Qaisar, mobilized their seemingly invincible armies of a few hundred thousand against the Muslims. On that critical occasion, when Islam was under attack, Allah Ta‘ala divinely supported Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). Hence, Deen remained secure and protected. During the period of Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), when the fitnah spread among the Muslims of Armenia and Azerbaijan in relation to the various dialects of the Qur’aan, Allah Ta‘ala inspired Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to compile the Qur’aan and preserve all the dialects in the manner they were revealed. Similarly, during the Khilaafat of Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), when the deviated sects, the Khawaarij and the Shi‘ah, detached themselves from the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) and the rest of the Ummah, and began reinterpreting Deen and the Qur’aan, Allah Ta‘ala divinely empowered Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) against them. Hence, wars and battles were fought and the fitnahs were eradicated and destroyed. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said:

عن ثوبان أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال لا يزال طائفة من أمتي على الحق منصورين لا يضرهم من خالفهم حتى يأتي أمر الله عز وجل (سنن ابن ماجة 1/3)

“There will always be a group from my Ummah who will be divinely assisted to remain firm on the truth. Those who will oppose them will not be able to harm them until the decision of Allah Ta‘ala (of Qiyaamah) will come.”

May Allah Ta‘ala reward the Khulafaa-e-Raashideen and the entire galaxy of Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) for defending and preserving Deen on behalf of the entire ummah. Had it not been for the effort and sacrifice of the illustrious Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), the noble Qur’an, the Mubaarak Ahaadith and the entire Deen of Islam would have not been preserved till today.
