#79 | Explanation of the Creed | al-Barbahaaree (rahimahullah)

It is not permissible to hide sincere advice from any of the Muslims, whether pious or impious, in matters of the Religion. Whoever hides that has acted deceitfully towards the Muslims. Whoever acts deceitfully to the Muslims has done so towards the Religion. Whoever acts deceitfully towards the Religion has behaved treacherously towards Allah, His Messenger and the Believers.×

× Footnote: Tameem ad-Daaree narrates: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “The religion is sincerity.” Upon this we asked, ‘To whom?’ He replied, “To Allah, His book, His Messenger and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk.”

– Reported by Muslim (no. 98)
