When Someone Leaves the People of the Truth

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

He who leaves the People of the Truth will be afflicted with the People of Falsehood. And worse than that is his getting to a [certain] point with them [so that] he [starts] making excuses for them, defending them, standing up for them, and adopting their ideas.

Holding on to the truth is a blessing, and being with its people is a blessing–even if [it were the case that] they had [some] shortcomings–since others have that and more.
