“This era is an era of gentleness, patience and wisdom, not an era of harshness.
The majority of the people are in ignorance, heedlessly preferring the Dunya.
So we must be patient and we must be gentle until the Da’wah spreads,
until the people reach it and until they know.
We ask Allah to grant everyone guidance.”
Shaykh Ibn Baz (rahimahullah)
Majmoo’ Fataawa Ibn Baaz 8/376
