Question: [When] I am in some gatherings, there are some people who are influenced by some of the misguided callers [to Islaam] – whom the scholars have warned against. So should I explain [to them] the speech of the scholars regarding them (the misguided callers to Islaam), or is it best that I remain quiet, particularly if there are general folk in the gatherings?
Response: No, don’t remain quiet. If you remain quiet, then that means you agree with them, and the general folk will [then] believe this talk. So explain with wisdom and good advice; explain this [to these people who are speaking ]. And if you can, then [grab a moment] alone with these [people] who are speaking and clarify [the truth] for them.
And if they return [to the truth], then all Praise is due to Allaah [alone].
And if they do not return [to the truth], then after that, explain [the truth] to the people.
