Nor do we say that the wrong action of a man who has belief does not have a harmful effect on him. We renounce any connection with them and in our opinion they are in error and on the path of destruction.
We do not recognise rebellion against our Imam or those in charge of our affairs even if they are unjust, nor do we wish evil on them, nor do we withdraw from following them. And the whole of what is proven from the Prophet, upon him be peaceregarding the Shari’ah and the explanation of the Qur’an and of Islam is true.

There is nothing that He has created in either the heavens or the earth that can contradict it, or add to it, or erase it, or change it, or decrease it, or increase it in any way.
We do not say that any of them will categorically go to either the Garden or the Fire, and we do not accuse any of them of kufr disbeliefshirk associating partners with Allahor nifaq hypocrisyas long as they have not openly demonstrated any of those things.
Likewise, the arguments advanced in refuting the views of sects that have deviated from the Sunnahare also taken from the Holy Qur’an and Sunnah. We follow the Sunnah of the Prophet and the Jama’ah of the Muslims, and avoid deviation, differences and divisions. He does whatever He wills and He is never unjust.
