A man was with Yahya Ibn Mu’ādh رحمه الله and recited in his presence the Āyah: 

فقولا له قولا لينا “

And speak to him (Fir’awn) with gentle speech.” (20:44)

Yahya began to weep. He then said:“My Lord, if this is Your mercy and gentleness with the one who says, ‘I am your God’ (i.e. Fir’awn claimed lordship for himself), then how will it be with the one who says that You are God? (a Muslim)
