Shaikh Saaleh As-Suhaymi (may Allaah preserve him) said:

Thirdly: His (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) statement: ”Beware! Avoid the commotions of the markets.” (1) Is this crowding (i.e. during demonstrations/protests) not severer than the commotions of the markets which has been forbidden, and (is it not) a trial and greater harm? (2)

The Commotions of the Markets: It is the free mixing; the disagreements; argumentation; raising of the voices; uproar and trials within it. (3)
