June 11, 2013 § Leave a comment


Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “Ibn al-Qayyim, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, ‘So whoever generates statements and establishes principles according to his own understanding and interpretation – it is not obligatory on the Ummah to follow them until they are examined against what the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم came with.  If they agree with it, they are accepted, and if they oppose it, they are rejected.’”

Mukhtaaraat min Zaadil-Ma’aad, p. 11.
