Calling Openly to the Truth

‎Imām Al-Shawkānī, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

Indeed, coming out openly with the truth and being public about [things] from the truth that aren’t in conformity with [other] people is not something [everyone] can do, other than a few individuals–and how few they are.

Adab Al-Ṭalab, p. 86, as quoted by Ibrāhīm Al-Sinighālī.
