Hadith on Ruin: Warning Against Deviation and Destruction

📖Sahih al-Bukhari 7058
Narrated Abu Huraira: I heard the truthful and trusted by Allah (i.e., the Prophet (ﷺ) ) saying, “The destruction of my followers will be through the hands of young men from Quraish.”

  • The “destruction” referred to in the hadith mean being led astray from the right path. This interpretation is consistent with other hadiths where the Prophet (peace be upon him) warned his followers of the emergence of false teachings and deviations in the Muslim community. Regardless of the specific interpretation, the hadith emphasizes the importance of remaining steadfast in one’s faith and staying true to the teachings of Islam. Muslims should strive to maintain a strong connection with Allah and seek guidance from the Quran and the teachings of the Prophet in order to avoid any kind of destruction or harm.
