The Khawaarij are Young and Foolish

Benefits from ‘Umrah Trip 1436

Shaykh ‘Abdur Razzaaq Ibn ‘Abdil-Muhsin al-Badr (may Allah preserve them both) stated in his class [the morning of the 26th of Jumaada ath-Thaani] after Salaatul Fajr:

From the descriptions which the Prophet (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) gave of the khawaarij that will appear in the latter times, is that they will be young in age and foolish. The two matters that come from this is that they are SMALL in terms of age and they are SMALL in terms of intellect. However, even with this, they put themselves forward to deal with the major affairs of the ummah. When this takes place by those who have these characteristics, they cause a lot of evil.
