Ash-Shaykh Abu Amr al-Hajooree, may Allah preserve him, 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, 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.” End quote.[A’waa;iq ad-Da’watus Salafiyyah, page 91, print: Al-Athariyyah]
[11:12 PM, 9/17/2018] Abu Fajr: Ash-Shaykh Muqbil, may Allah have mercy upon him, said:
” The da’wah is not an idol that is worshiped”. End quote.
It is really scary to see how much people come and go, people who would excel in knowledge and memorize much. However, at the end of the day:
من ثبت نبت
“He who is firm will eventually grow and increase upon goodness.”
And others unfortunately go with the wind.
فَأَمَّا الزَّبَدُ فَيَذْهَبُ جُفَاءً ۖ وَأَمَّا مَا يَنْفَعُ النَّاسَ فَيَمْكُثُ فِي الْأَرْضِ ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ يَضْرِبُ اللَّهُ الْأَمْثَالَ
” Then, as for the foam it passes away as scum upon the banks, while that which is for the good of mankind remains in the earth. Thus Allah sets forth parables (for the truth and falsehood).
May Allaah keep us firm and protect us from being amazed of our own opinions especially in the light of its opposition to the salafi manhaj.
