Feed [TROID] Benefit: Types of Fanaticism

In the Name of All?h, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Fanaticism is divided into two categories:

1- Fanaticism towards personalities: For example, the Christians towards ??s?? ibn Maryam. Likewise, the fanaticism of the Sh??ah towards ?Al? ibn Ab? T?lib and his descendants etc.

2- Fanaticism towards Ideologies: This is more dangerous than the previous type of fanaticism because fanaticism towards personalities only destroys the fanatic, but fanaticism towards ideologies destroys the religion, societies, countries and nations. It destroys everything. This is like the fanaticism of the corrupt Khaw?rij terrorists. If their ideology is found with a people then they become corrupt because they cause corruption and claim rectification. They ruin whilst claiming to be gaining closeness to All?h, killing innocent souls and spilling sacred blood, all the while claiming jih?d in the path of All?h.
