Q: Al 'Allaamah Ash Shaikh Ahmad An Najmee (rahimahullah) was asked,

"What is your advice to a Muslim during these (current) days of our?"

A: I advise that they live (their life) upon Tawheed and the correct Creed. They should perform the obligations and mandatory acts and stay far away from sins and prohibited things. They should accompany the righteous and stay away from the wicked. They should follow the Sunnan (the ways of the Prophet (ﷺ)) and avoid (all forms of) innovation. Beware of Fitnah, for verily it is a lot (and widespread) during this time. I advise that they stay in their home and cry over their sins as the Prophet (ﷺ) said to one of his companions,
"Stay in your home and cry over your sins."
And the success is with Allah.
