The Prophet's (s.a.w.) Prophecy of the Najdi

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Hafizh ibn Katsir (r.a.) wrote, in his Tarikh, that when the kuffar of Makkah had a meeting concerning the Prophet (s.a.w.), Shaythan came in the form of a Najdi shaykh.  An old man came, claiming, “I am a Najdi.  Whatever you want to know, I will be helpful.”  This Najdi shaykh then gave his view against the Prophet (s.a.w.) throughout the meeting.

It is recorded by Imam al-Bukhari (r.a.), in Kitab al-Fitnah, that the Prophet (s.a.w.) stated, “I fear from the Najdi.”  Imam al-Bukhari (r.a.) also recorded that the Prophet (s.a.w.) stated, “The fitnah will emerge from the east,” referring to the Najd.

Shaykh Sulayman ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab (r.a.), the brother of the heretic, Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab an-Najdi, said about his brother, “The horn of Shaythan which the Prophet (s.a.w.) referred to is you.”  This was recorded in Sawa’iq al-Ilahiyyah, meaning that ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhab had left the fold of Islam.  Perhaps the Najdi shaykh that Shaythan took the form of, was that of Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahab himself.
