Shaikh Muqbil on Blindly-Following Al-Albaani, Ibn Baaz and ‘Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on them all

The Shaikh of Yemen, Muqbil ibn Haadi al-Waadi’i, may Allaah have mercy on him said, “And we say: we hold blind-following to be forbidden. So it is not allowed for us to blindly follow Shaikh al-Albaani, nor Shaikh Ibn Baaz nor Shaikh Ibn ’Uthaimeen, for indeed Allaah تعالى says in His Noble Book, “Follow, [O mankind], what has been revealed to you from your Lord and do not follow other than Him any allies. Little do you remember,” [Al-A’raaf 7:3] and He سبحانه وتعالى said, “And do not pursue that of which you have no knowledge.” [Al-Israa 17:36] So Ahlus-Sunnah do not blindly follow.”
