… and they perceive him to be ignorant, when in fact he is not ignorant

Al-Hasan Al-Basree said:

“If a man sits amongst people, and they perceive him to be ignorant, when in fact he is not ignorant, then this is truly the Muslim who possesses understanding (of the Religion).”

[The Book Of Knowledge, by Imaam Aboo Khaithama An-Nisaa’ee, #131]
