With regard to me, two categories of people will be ruined, namely he who loves me too much and the love takes him away from rightfulness, and he who hates me too much and the hatred takes him away from rightfulness. The best man with regard to me is he who is on the middle course. So be with him and be with the great majority (of Muslims) because Allah’s hand (of protection) is on keeping unity.

May Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) keep us streadfast on the middle path and save us from the two categories mentioned above. Ameen.
