FOR THE SAKE OF TRUTH
Individuals are required to defend their religion and must not fear to be cast out. Prophets who stood firm in their beliefs and suffered for their cause while trying to spread their messages are good examples. A great majority of people are afraid of being excommunicated, and prefer to stick to the established faith and traditions. If these people are comparatively near to the so-called devotee, so much the worse.
36 – Is not God sufficient for His devotee? Still they frighten you with others apart from Him.
39 The Throngs, 36
