Question Oft-Repeated By The Ignorant

Why have you left off the Jews and the Christians but you backbite the religious callers of the Muslims?

Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah have mercy upon him) stated: The corruption of the Jews and the Christians is apparent to the general masses of the Muslims. As for the people of innovation, their corruption is not apparent to every person.
