Shaykh Abdul Azeez Rantisi(رحمه الله) narrates an incident while he was imprisoned in the notorious “Al Naqab” in the year 1991.

We set on the chairs waiting for “Shalta’el”(A fierce Zionist officer whom all feared), then he came, he was a tall man. When he entered from the door, he looked at his officers pointing with his hand to invite them to stand up & they obeyed. Then he pointed to the representatives to do the same, they all obeyed except me. He approached me and said “why don’t you stand up?”

I said to him “ My religion forbids to stand up to anyone for glorification except my creator [Allah], and you are not God, just a human”
