I will not remain silent

Reference: Aadaab ash-Sharee’ah (1/207) of Ibn Muflih al-Maqdisee al-Hanbalee

Ibn Taahir al-Maqdisee al-Haafidh said, I heard the Imaam, Abu Ismaa’eel ‘Abdullaah ibn Muhammad al-Ansaaree saying, whilst in Haraah:

The sword was put to my neck five times [and each time] it was not said to me, ‘Leave your madhhab’ but it was said to me, ‘Remain silent about those who are in opposition to you’. So I would say, ‘I will not remain silent’.
