Never do I argue with a man with a desire to hear him say
what is wrong, or to expose him and win victory over him.
Whenever I face an opponent in debate I silently pray -
O Lord, help him so that truth may flow from his heart
and on his tongue, and so that if truth is on my side, he may follow me and if truth be on his side, I may follow him.
Whoever makes a show of his good deeds so that people will respect him, Allah Ta'ala will show what is truly in his heart.
