Imam Abdurrahman Ibn Hassan Ala Shaykh when mentioning that the majority of the latter part of this nation has fallen into Shirk – which is the greatest of the prohibitions – mentions:
“Indeed the strangeness of Islaam has become severe, whereas the good has returned to being considered evil, and evil as being good. The young one is raised upon this, and the elders have become old upon it.
Indeed the prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم said;
“Islaam began as something strange, and it will return to being strange as it began”
[Qurratu Uyoon Al Muwahideen, Pg.20]
