Benefit: The Khawārij Will Arise from ʿIrāq

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

عن يُسَيْرُ بْنُ عَمْرٍو، قَالَ قُلْتُ لِسَهْلِ بْنِ حُنَيْفٍ هَلْ سَمِعْتَ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ فِي الْخَوَارِجِ شَيْئًا قَالَ سَمِعْتُهُ يَقُولُ ـ وَأَهْوَى بِيَدِهِ قِبَلَ الْعِرَاقِ ـ " يَخْرُجُ مِنْهُ قَوْمٌ يَقْرَءُونَ الْقُرْآنَ لاَ يُجَاوِزُ تَرَاقِيَهُمْ، يَمْرُقُونَ مِنَ الإِسْلاَمِ مُرُوقَ السَّهْمِ مِنَ الرَّمِيَّةِ ".

On the authority of Yusayr ibn ʿAmr who said: I asked Sahl ibn Ḥanīf: Have you heard the prophet (ṣalla Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) say anything about the Khawārij (renegade terrorists)? He said: I heard him say—while pointing towards the direction of ʿIrāq—there will arise from it a people who recite the Qurʾān whilst it does not go beyond their throats. They will exit the religion like the arrow exits the game’s body.
