“If you see that someone is performing an evil action, stop it with your hand. If you can’t stop by your hands, then stop it with your words. If you can’t stop it with your words then stop it with your soul. But, stopping with your soul is the weakest form of iyman (belief).” (narrated by Imam Muslim)
