The Desire for the Haq to Be Revealed

The Desire for the Haq to Be Revealed

When I discussed and debated with anyone my desire was for him to be given the taufeeq of good; to be shown the path of guidance; to be divinely aided; to be protected by Allah Ta’ala from errors. In the discussion I would not concern myself with whether Allah Ta’ala reveals the Haq with my tongue or his tongue. (In other words: If the adversary speaks the truth then I feel no shame in accepting it.)
–Hazrat Imaam Muhammad Bin Idree Ash-Shaafi’ (Rahmatullahii Alaih)
