On the Verge of Losing His Faith
Imām Ibn Baṭṭah Al-ʿUkbarī, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:
Whoever hates correctness from others and aids mistakes from himself, has nothing to keep him safe from Allāh taking away from him what he has learned and making him forget what he has memorized; in fact, it’s to be feared for him that Allāh [might] take away his īmān [faith, as it consists of belief, speech, and action].
Al-Ibānah Al-Kubrá, vol. 1, p 547.
قال الإمام ابن بطّة العكبريّ رحمه الله:"مَنْ كَرِه الصّواب مِنْ غيره، ونصر الخطأ من نفسه؛ لم يُؤمن عليه أنْ يسلبه الله ما علمه وينسيه ما ذكره، بل يُخاف عليه أن يسلبه الله إيمانه"
(الإبانة الكبرى)(١/ ٥٤٧)
