Shaykhul-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah have mercy upon him):


If the person who speaks with the truth intends (with that) being uppermost in the land (over the people) or the causing of corruption (in the land), he is on the same level as the one who fights out of fanaticism and showing off. And If the person speaks (with the truth) for the sake of Allah, sincerely, making the religion for Him, he is from the Mujaahideen (those who strive) on the path of Allah, (he is from the) inheritors of the Prophets (and) the successors of the Messengers.
