“Imām ash-Shaʿbī was asked a question and replied that he didn’t know the answer. So someone said, ‘Aren’t you ashamed of saying, ‘I don’t know,’ when you are the faqīh of Iraq?’ So he said, ‘But the Angels weren’t ashamed when they said, ‘We have no knowledge except what you have taught us.’’” [Baqarah 2:32]
Iʿlāmul-Muwaqqiʿīn, 6/134.
