The result of this extremism is, whoever loved the one who is followed and mentioned him in a good manner he is (considered by the followers to be) one who is a beloved friend. As for whoever criticized him, even if it is with right, he is (considered by the followers to be) a hated enemy. This is from the blameworthy extremism. Allah did not make love, hate, alliance and disassociation to be for anyone from amongst the people or any group from amongst the groups. He only commanded us with His love, the love of His Messenger, the love of those who follow Him and follow His Messenger according to the degree of that which is with the person of following (the Book and Sunnah). He also commanded us to hate the one who opposes something from The Book and Sunnah according to the degree of his opposition.
