If you loved a man for the sake of Allah…

 

 

 

قَالَ سُفْيَان الثَّوْرِي

Imaam Sufyan ath Thawree said

إِذَا أَحْبَبْتَ الرَجُلَ في اللهِ ثُمَّ أَحْدَثَ حَدَثاً في الإِسْلَامِ

 

، فَلَمْ تُبْغِضْهُ عَلَيْهِ فَلَمْ تُحِبَّهُ في الله

If you loved a man for the sake of Allah and then he innovated an innovation in Islam and you did not hate him for it, then you didn’t (really) love him for the sake of Allah
