"Worship at Times of Killings and Confusion Equals Migration to Me" / Khaled Abdullah Al-Eid

This research is concerned with the study of Prophet Mohammad's Hadith "Worship at times of killings and confusion equals migration to me" from the perspective of narrative and text criteria. It attempts to elaborate the Hadith's benefits and related academic issues. It also shows the Islamic approach to dealing with afflictions / confusing trials. It aims to rank the Hadith in terms of authenticity and weakness, to show the similarity between worship at trial times and migration to the Prophet, and to highlight the Islamic approach to trials.
The research applies an analytical deductive methodology. It has arrived at the following conclusions: Prophet Mohammad cared for his nation, guided it, conveyed to it what guarantees success in this world and the hereafter; the Qur'an and the Sunnah contain the approach that must be followed at times of trials and killing; at such times, acts of worship and righteous deeds are important; and it is important to test information, especially that circulating in the social media. The research makes recommendations, amongst which are the following: organize conferences and forums on causes and solutions for affliction trials; conducting related research projects by universities and research centers to elaborate the Islamic approach at trial times; and make use of the mainstream and social media to reinforce the values of social cohesion, preventing confusion and dissension.
