A Statement of Yahyah Bin Sa’eed Regarding Giving Fatwa Without Knowledge

Abu Khaythama narrated to us, (saying): Fadl Ibn Dukayn related to us, (saying): Sufyaan informed us from Yahyah Ibn Saeed who said: I heard Al-Qaasim Ibn Muhammad say: A person lives his (whole) life being ignorant is better for him than giving fataawaa without knowledge.
