Fitna may refer to a short polemical film by Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders, juxtaposing key phrases from the Koran with dramatic real world events - such as the September 11th attacks - which Wilders argues are the inevitable consequences of the phrases. Wilders ended his film with a picture of the Koran, followed by the sound of pages ripping to portray the idea that Wilders has torn the Koran in two (see Koran desecration).

Mike Ghouse & Imam Zia-ul-Haq Shaikh object to the documentary, saying it is based on "lies" and deliberate mistranslations of the Koran.

In Islamic apocalyptic writings, a fitna is a time of tribulation and great civil unrest. The term may have common usage, however, to describe merely a civil war within Muslim territories governed by sharia law, with no apocalyptic assumptions.
