The Meaning of Fitnah فتنة

And fight them on until there is no more Fitna, and it all becomes the religion of Allah altogether and everywhere; then if they cease, verily Allah doth see all that they do
The Arabic word Fitna (فِتْنَةٌ‎) does not have the same meaning as given by our three official translators (Yusuf Ali, Picktall, Shakir), which is "tumult" and "oppression". To understand the true meaning of this word as spoken by Muhammad, we need to look towards the universally accepted Qur'anic commentary by Ibn Kathir:
"Ibn `Umar came to us and was asked, "What do you say about fighting during Fitnah Ibn `Umar said, "Do you know what Fitnah refers to Muhammad was fighting against the idolators, and at that time, attending (or residing with) the idolators was a Fitnah (trial in religion). Ad-Dahhak reported that Ibn `Abbas said about the Ayah (And fight them until there is no more Fitnah...) "So that there is no more Shirk.
