Seeking Protection from a Time when the Ulama will not be Followed

وعن سهل بن سعد الساعدي أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم قال اللهم لا يدركني زمان أو قال لا تدركوا زمانا لا يتبع فيه العليم ولا يستحيى فيه من الحليم قلوبهم قلوب الأعاجم وألسنتهم ألسنة العرب رواه أحمد وفي إسناده ابن لهيعة (الترغيب والترهيب 1/151)

Hazrat Sahl bin Sa’d (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) (made the following duaa) saying: “O Allah, do not allow me to live to see such a time, or (while addressing the Sahaabah) he said, may you not find yourselves in such a time, wherein the learned are not followed, and the respectable are not shown any respect, (the people of such a time will be such that) their hearts will resemble the hearts of non Arabs (disbelievers, i.e. They will possess the qualities that were more prevalent among the non-Arabs in the time of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) most of whom were non believers), and their tongues will resemble the tongues of Arabs (i.e. they will be reciting the Qur’an and quoting the Ahaadith of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam).”
