Hudhayfah on Fitnah: Worst tribulation to not know good or evil

‘Amir reported: Hudhayfah, may Allah be pleased with him, was asked, “Which trial is the worst?” Hudhayfah said, “It is when good and evil are before you and you do not know which of them to follow.”

عَنْ عَامِرٍ قَالَ سُئِلَ حُذَيْفَةُ رضي الله عنه أَيُّ الْفِتْنَةِ أَشَدُّ قَالَ أَنْ يُعْرَضَ عَلَيْكَ الْخَيْرُ وَالشَّرُّ لَا تَدْرِي أَيَّهُمَا تَتْبَعُ
