Shyness can prevent a person from learning his religion

In his khutbah (Friday sermon) two weeks ago, Shaykh Saalih al Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) said:

“… and as for the shyness that prevents a person from acquiring knowledge and from asking about that from the affairs of his religion which is unclear to him, this is timidity and not shyness and it is cowardice and it is blameworthy shyness, not the shyness [encouraged] in the religion.”
