      Narrated Sayyiduna Umar (RA) that the Messenger of
      Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “My Ummah
      will be subjected to severe hardships (in religious matters)
      in a number of ways by those in power. Only three
      types of individuals will remain unscathed:
      i. that who fathomed Allah’s faith correctly and then
      strived for it with his tongue, hand and heart, and therefore,
      progressed because of the (all three) advancements
      he made;
      ii. that who understood Allah’s faith and then (verbally)
      attested it (i.e., proclaimed it publically);
      iii. that who, though fathoming Allah’s faith, still remained
      silent (i.e., loved the one he found engaged in
      virtuous deeds and hated whom he spotted doing evil),
      so he, in spite of concealing his love and hate, will be
      eligible to enter the Garden.
      (Baihaqi)
