Shaykh Yahya said:

“The call of Tamyee’a is covered with gentleness. You see them calling to Gentleness! Gentleness! Gentleness! in order to [ get the people] to mix with the Mutadi’ah [innovators].”

[Thawabit Al-Minhajiyyah (page 16)]

Ash-Shaykh Abu Amr al-Hajooree hafidaho-Allah, said:

“The one who is a mumayee’ is the one who does not take affairs with a strength of mind and strong point. Rather, the affairs break away from him, from his own hands while his goal is to please this [person] and not to anger that [person]. His da’wah goes to waste and becomes futile due to him resigning from speaking the truth or committing sins and maybe even being silent from a great duty, and [this duty] is the duty of commanding the good and forbidding the evil under the claim of hikmah [out of wisdom] in da’wah or for the benefit for the da’wah. To the degree our ash-Shaykh Muqbil, may Allah have mercy upon him, said:

The da’wah is not an idol that is worshiped”. And he [ash-Shaykh Muqbil] used to speak the truth, and would not fear the blame of the blamers. He would not flatter anyone [regarding his mistakes].Our Shaykh Yahya al-Hajooree, may Allah preserve him, said:

“Hikmah [wisdom] is not fortune telling. Rather, Hikmah is in accordance to the Book and Sunnah” ”

[A’waa’iq ad-Da’watus Salafiyyah, page 91 , print: Al-Athariyyah]
