From Embody Islam's Twitter Page (http://twitter.com/#%21/embodyislam), you will in sha` Allaah come across scholarly gems such as:

'Umar ibn al-Khattaab (radiallaahu 'anhu) said:
Returning to the truth is better than persisting in falsehood.

Al-Fudayl ibn 'Iyadh [d.187H, rahimahulaah] said:
Whoever smiles in the face of an innovator has not taken seriously what Allaah revealed to Muhammad.

Shaikh 'Ubayd al-Jabari (hafidhahullaah) said:
There isn't a khalafi except that he detests when someone calls himself 'Salafi.'

Shaikh Rabee' bin Hadee al-Madkhalee (hafidhahullaah) said:
...People tell you not to read books of refutations because books of refutations will expose them...

Shaikh Saalih al-Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah) said:
...Leaving off [refutations] is a cause for falsehood spreading...

Shaikh Ahmad said Shaikh Rabee' said:
[B]A person's correct statements and actions are a magnificent recommendation (tazkiyyah) for him.

Shaikh Saalih al-Fawzaan (may Allaah aid him) said:
The biggest reason for differing is leaving off the methodology of the Salaf.

Shaikh Saalih Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah) said:
Whoever makes a mistake [spreading Islamic knowledge], he must be corrected. It doesn't matter who he is...

Shaikh 'Ubayd al-Jabari (hafidhahullaah):
You [al-Da'ee] are not burdened [by Allaah] to gather people; rather, your job is to invite to the Qur`aan and Sunnah.

Shaykh Muhammad bin Hadee (hafidhahullaah) said:
...It is not befitting for Ahlus-Sunnah to be silent [about falsehood] in these times...

A doubt (shubhah) is: Something that a person thinks is a proof, but in actuality it's not; rather, it's a misinterpretation and delusion.
