Religious arguments

A mureed wrote;

“One of my colleagues often talks to me regarding the futility of taqleed, dishonesty of scholars, etc. He wants to argue. I usually listen to him silently, without replying.

Sayyidi wa sanadi Hazrat Mawlana Mohammad Taqi Usmani sahib db replied;

“This is most appropriate attitude. One should abstain from arguing as much as possible.”

The mureed continued;

“However, if his speech crosses the limit, I reply.”

Sayyidi wa sanadi db replied;

“This should also be very brief.

However, if at any time you feel that he wants to know the truth genuinely then going into details won’t be detrimental.”
