Al-Haafidh Ibn Abdul Barr (rahimahullaah) said:

”The people upon the correct understanding of the religion and those who cling to the (authentic) narrations of the [Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and that of the pious predecessors] in all the regions are agreed that the people of philosophical rhetoric are people of bidah and deviation.  (All the scholars) do not consider them to be from those who have been given sound understanding in the religion; rather the scholars are those who hold onto the (authentic) narrations of the [Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and that of the pious predecessors] and they have been given sound understanding in that.”
