Chapter No. 39, The Chapters on Tribulations
Hadith No: 4014
Narrated/Authority of Abu Umayyah Shabani
"I came to Abu Thalabah Al-Khushani and said: 'How do you understand this Verse?' He said: 'Which verse?' I said: "O you who believe! Take care of your own selves. If you follow the (right) guidance, no hurt can come to you from those who are in error."?[5:105] He said: 'You have asked one who knows about it. I asked the Messenger of Allah (saw) about it and he said: "Enjoin good upon one another and forbid one another to do evil, but if you see overwhelming stinginess, desires being followed, this world being preferred (to the Hereafter), every person with an opinion feeling proud of it, and you realize that you have no power to deal with it, then you have to mind your own business and leave the common folk to their own devices. After you will come days of patience, during which patience will be like grasping a burning ember, and one who does good deeds will have a reward like that of fifty men doing the same deed."
