Facing antagonism


A seeker complained about the Barelvi antagonism.

Shaykh Sayyid Abdush Shakoor Tirmizi* (may Allah have mercy on him) replied,

‘I make supplication (dua in this regards).

Be patient and maintain silence.

Make supplications yourself also.

Maintain complete silence by tongue and heart in this regards.

Advice your acquaintances to do the same.

Do not even discuss these controversial issues. The truth has already been established and disseminated. God-willing (inshaAllah) it is sufficient.

(Beware!) This is the era of calamities (fitna).’
