Openly dissociating from the enemies of Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them) is potentially dangerous for me, and there’s a chance I might be imprisoned and tortured but not killed.
Would I be rewarded for this act, or am I not permitted from doing such a thing and put my well-being at risk?
In the Name of Allah, the All-Beneficent, the All-Merciful.
May Allah bless Muhammad and his Family and damn their enemies.
After consulting the Sheikh, he pointed to the importance of following the command of Imam al-Kazim (peace be upon him),
Say the truth even if it may lead to your demise, for in it is your salvation.
The Sheikh also said: ‘’A believer has to evaluate his circumstances and strive to apply the best tactics to vanquish falsehood, establish the truth and guide people to the right path. He should try as much as he can to protect himself so that he can accomplish even more. However, if he finds that he has to sacrifice himself for the sake of Allah (Exalted is He) to preserve the faith, then he is obliged to put his neck before the sword, i.e. to make himself ready for death.
