An Upright Behaviour Expected From a Wise Caller to Islam When He Is Opposed or When Someone Differs With Him

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen [rahimahullaah] said:

The heart of the caller [i.e. the caller to Islaam upon sound knowledge, clear-sightedness, wisdom, etc] should be relaxed towards the one who opposes him, especially if he knows that the one who opposes him has a good intention and has not opposed him except to establish the evidence he possesses; therefore, it is obligated on a person to be flexible in these affairs. He should not make this differing a cause for enmity and hatred, except against a man who opposes the [truth] obstinately after the truth has been made clear to him, but he carries on upon his falsehood; then indeed it is obligatory to deal with him [in a manner] he deserves-by alienating him and warning the people about him- because his enmity manifested after the truth has been made manifest to him and [refuses] to follow it.
