Fanaticism is divided into two categories: Fanaticism towards personalities: for example, the Christians towards ʿĪsāʾ ibn Maryam. Likewise, the fanaticism of the Shīʿah towards ʿAlī ibn Abī Ṭālib and his descendants, etc. Fanaticism towards ideologies: this is more dangerous than the previous type of fanaticism because fanaticism towards personalities only destroys the fanatic, but fanaticism towards ideologies destroys the religion, societies, countries, and nations — it destroys everything.

We Hear and We Obey

If a prohibition reaches you, then refrain from it, and ask not whether it is impermissible or disliked.
