Pearl of Wisdom

'Dissimulation has situations [necessitating it]. Whoever lifts them from their rightful places, they will not uphold him. The explanation of what should be dissimulated is like when there is an evil people whose outer rulings and actions oppose rightful rulings and actions, so everything that a believer does among them in a situation [necessitating] dissimulation is permissible, as long as it does not lead to the corruption of his faith.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
al-Kafi, v. 2, p. 168, no. 1

After Amir al-mu'minin had sent Jarir ibn `Abdillah al-Bajali to Mu`awiyah E-mail
Sermon 43 After Amir al-mu'minin had sent Jarir ibn `Abdillah al-Bajali to Mu`awiyah (for securing his allegiance) some of his companions suggested preparation to fight with him then he said:

My preparation for war with the people of Syria (ash-Sham) while Jarir ibn `Abdillah al-Bajali is still there would be closing the door for Syria and prevention of its people from good action (i.e. allegiance) if they intend doing it. However, I have fixed a time limit for Jarir after which he would not stay without either deception or in disobedience. My opinion is in favour of patience, so wait a while. (In the meantime) I do not dislike your getting ready.

I have observed this matter thoroughly from all sides but I do not find any way except war or heresy. Certainly, there was over the people a ruler (before me) who brought about new (un-Islamic) things and compelled the people to speak out. So they did speak, then rose up and thereafter changed the whole system.
