My guess is that this hadith applies to people back then, not in this era. In this era, the muslim person who passes next to a grave wishes that he would be in the place of the deceased from the extent of all the fitnas in this world today. I say this out of experience and im only in my 20s
If we stay in arab or islamic countries, they shun us away and have favoritism towards western nationalities be these people over here think that their Gods some how. They give all the good jobs and benefits to those who are non arabs and demote their brothers to the lowest of ranks. Trust me im a first hand witness of this.
If we go to western countries at least we get a proper chance at making a living for ourselves without feeling segregated or belittle because of our nationalities. At least the network of brother hood over there is much stronger than it is here. But it just has to come with all the negatives of the western mindset and libiration that you see all over the place in these areas.
If you go to the wilderness and live by yourself ... still haram somehow. So what is the person suppose to do?
Trust me, If we want to expose ourselves to the least amount of fitna possible, moving away from civilization is our best option.
