In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh Rabīʿ ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī (حفظه الله) said: “Ibn Taymiyyah and Ibn al-Qayyim (رحمهما الله) lived in a country ruled by kings, and although the country was deviant in its belief, worship, and laws, they never attacked its rulers with their swords; rather, they fought the Mongols under their country's banner.”
