From the Greatest of Filth in Hearts

Imām Ibn Taimiyyah, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

From the greatest of filth [to be found] in hearts is [that which] occurs of hatred and malice in the heart of a slave toward the best of believers, the heads amongst Allāh’s most pious believers, after the prophets.
