Following The Truth When It Becomes Clear To A Person

The ‘Allaamah Shaykh ‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Abdur Rahmaan Abaa Bateen (may Allah have mercy upon him) stated:

When the truth becomes clear to the person, he doesn’t feel deserted (or alone) because of the few people who are in agreement (with the truth) as well as the abundance of those who are in opposition, especially in the latter part of these times.

(Ad-Durrar as-Saniyyah Fee al-Ajwibah an-Najdiyyah 10/400)

The Allaamah Shaykh ‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Abdur Rahmaan Abaa Bateen (may Allah have mercy upon him) stated commenting on the Hadeeth:

“There will not cease to be a group from my Ummah apparent upon the truth.”

The Shaykh said: “The intended (meaning) of being apparent (upon the truth) is not by way of the sword, rather by way of the proofs (and evidences) always, and the sword sometimes.”

(Ad-Durrar as-Saniyyah Fee al-ajwibah an-Najdiyyah 10/399)
