A seeker living in the holy city of Makkah wrote,
‘I feel disgusted when I see the Shia Iranian pilgrims roaming around in this holy city. Please, advice if I need to do anything about these feelings.’
Shaikh Dr. Hafeezullah Sukkharwi/Madani (Allah have mercy on him) replied,

This is grossly inappropriate.
One should abhor their deviant beliefs. However, every human being is to be respected and the best should be desired for him (this includes salvation in hereafter. That is, by making supplication (dua) and effort (as much possible within one’s means) that he may be guided to true faith and practice).’
