Tips on how to handle crises:


1. Keep away from places of trouble. ‘And fear the Fitnah (affliction and trial) which affects not in particular (only) those of you who do wrong.' (Quran 8:25) 'There will be afflictions (in the near future) during which a sitting person will be better than a standing one, and the standing one will be better than the walking one, and the walking one will be better than the running one, and whoever will expose himself to these afflictions, they will destroy him. So whoever can find a place of protection or refuge from them, should take shelter in it.' (Bukhari)


2. Hold fast to Quran and Sunnah. 'Safety of this (Muslim community) lies in its first generation. Its later generations will be afflicted with calamities and things you will find repulsive. Trials will follow one another successively until later ones will make the former seem insignificant until the believer will say at the advent of each trial: 'This is the one that is going to destroy me.' So let whosoever wants to be saved from Hell and made to enter Paradise die while he is believing in Allah and the Last Day and let him do to people what he would like them to do to him.' (Muslim)
3. Patience. Imam Ahmad rahimahullah used to say: 'Bearing our present situation with patience is better than taking part in a crisis in which blood is shed and properties and honours are violated.'
