The Prophet’s (s.a.w.) Warning against the Khwarij
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Referring to the Khwarij, the Prophet (s.a.w.) said, “They transferred the Qur’anic verses meant to refer to unbelievers and made them refer to believers.”
He also said, “What I most fear in my community is a man who interprets verses of the Qur’an out of context.”
He also said, “The fitnah comes from there,” and he pointed to the east, where the Najd is, in Eastern Saudi Arabia, in the current age.
He described their coming thus: “A people that recite Qur’an will come out of the East, but it will not go past their throats. They will pass through the religion like the arrow passes through its quarry. They will no more come back to the religion than the arrow will come back to its course. Their sign is that they shave,” meaning that they shave their heads.
