Honouring Transgressors Destroys Islam

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “When a man honours a transgressor, he helps the destruction of Islam.” [Ihya Ulum Id-Din by Imam Ghazali]

Sayeed bin Musayyeb, the famous scholar among the Tabieen, was asked by Caliph Abdul Malek to swear allegiance to his two sons Waleed and Solaiman. He said, “I will not vow allegiance to them till night and day turn as the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) prohibited allegiance to two persons (as rulers of the Muslims at one and the same time).” As a result, he was flogged and made to wear a dress of disgrace. [Ihya Ulum Id-Din]

How much of a stand can you take to preserve Islam?
