Wa3laykum Asalam waRa7matullah waBarakatu brother,
In the blessed book 'The Labyrinth or the Path to Allah' Ahmad Al Hassan (pbuh) tells us that while taqqiya is confirmed by the Imams (pbut) "some people fail to support the family of Muhammad (as), with the excuse of practicing taqqiya, especially in the Age of Appearance of Imam al-Mahdi (as)."
Ahmad Al Hassan (pbuh) then says: "So taqqiya doesn't mean quitting or leaving the Jihad (strife) for the sake of Allah, but it means to work cautiously, for example: if you want to kill a poisonous snake, you have to approach it quietly to strike it on its head, but if you make a lot of noise the snake will notice that you are approaching it, and maybe it will start to attack you. And on the authority of Abi Ja'far (as) in Sahih Al-Hazaa: â€œBy Allah, the most loved companions to me are the most pious and knowledgeable, and the concealer of our sayings.â€
And concealing the sayings of Ahlul Bayt (as) from those who don't believe in the Imamate of ala Muhammad (as), those who obstinate them (as) and are not among their (as) mandate."
To read the full chapter on Taqqiya by Imam Ahmad Al Hassan (pbuh) refer to 'The Labyrinth or the Path to Allah' Pages 49 & 50.
Peace be upon you and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings,
