Taqiya

29 Dec

Suyooti in Tafseer Durr Manthoor, through Ibn Jurair, Ibn Abi Hatim, Ibn Mardawiya, Hakim, Baheeqi and others:

Muhammad ibn Ammar narrates that some idol worshippers caught Ammar ibn Yasir and tortured and forced him to condemn the Rasool and praise their idols. Ammar later came to Rasool and related everything. The Messenger of Allah asked: “Tell me, how do you find your heart?” Ammar replied: “I find my heart content with complete faith in you.” The Rasool then replied that if that is the condition of your heart, then if the idol worshippers force you to say similar words as they did now, then go ahead and say them.
