Shaikh Ubaid Bin Abdillaah Al-Jaabiri (may Allaah preserve him) stated:

As for his knowledge (i.e. the knowledge possessed by Shaikhul Islaam), then its effects (i.e. its tremendous effects) are indicative of that. He was an Imaam in Tafseer and this is clearly manifested in his derivation of evidences from the Aayaat (of the Qur’aan). He was a scholar in Hadeeth, so you find how he (utilised them) as evidence in their (appropriate) places. He was a scholar of Fiqh without blindly following (others) and it is enough that he was an Imaam in the fundamental (principles) of the religion and knowledge of the (affairs) of creed- Thaabit Fee Aqeedatihi As-Sunniyyah-firm upon his Sunni Creed (i.e. the correct Sunni Islamic Creed of the Salafus Saalih) and Shubuhaat (i.e. doubts that are made to resemble the truth, but are falsehood in reality) did not shake him, rather he used to refute them…..[Abridged….Source: Tanbeeh Dhawil Uqool As-Saleemah page 11’ by Shaikh Ubaid Al-Jaabiri (may Allaah preserve him)]
