When a Sunni Gets Cold Treatment from Some of Ahl al-Sunnah

The great scholar ʿUbaid Al-Jābirī, may Allāh protect him, said:

The Sunnī, even if some of the People of the Sunnah were to behave coldly with him, [still] loves them, defends them, calls [upon Allāh] for them, calls [others] to them, and connects people to them.

He does not part company with them, even if there were something of coldness between him and some of the People of the Sunnah, and something of estrangement, because that which brings them together is the pure religion of Islām. They came together for Allāh’s sake, and they love that, just as they have come together for Allāh’s sake, they break apart for Him.

As for the innovator, he is not upon that. He shows open enmity against the People of the Sunnah and those who are in alliance with them, makes his hatred and aversion to them apparent, digs into their position and status, and strives to separate people from them.
