Shaykh Al Uthaymeen said:

“Ibraaheem Alayhis Salaam feared Shirk (polytheism) upon himself, while he is the intimate friend of the most merciful and the leader of the monotheist. Thus what do you think about us?

Don’t feel safe from Shirk nor hypocrisy for none feel safe from hypocrisy except a hypocrite, and none fear hypocrisy except a believer.

For that reason Ibn Abi Mulaykah said:

“I met 30 companions of the prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم, all of them feared hypocrisy upon himself”
