Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah) said:
The one seeking leadership is pleased with the statement that entails his magnification even if it is falsehood. He is angered the by the statement that entails his blame even if it is the truth.
As for the believer, the statement of truth pleases him whether it is for him or against him. He hates the statement of falsehood whether it is for him or against him. That is because Allah loves the truth, truthfulness and justice. And He hates lies and oppression.
