In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Introduction

Shaikh Muhammad Baazmool [may Allaah preserve him] said:

Among the rights of the scholars is that one should not be a partisan of their statements without proof. There is a difference between exalting the scholars, honouring them and acknowledging their rights as opposed to being a partisan of their statements when they oppose the proofs. Indeed, [blind] partisanship is blameworthy, and it is tantamount to ignorance [Ref 1]; but showing respect to a scholar and honouring him is related to the virtues of knowledge. And abandoning those statements of the scholars that are in opposition to the proofs is not tantamount to nullifying their statements and a violation of their rights, rather it is adherence to the path of the infallible one [i.e. the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam)]. [Ref 2]
