Benefits from a Lecture of Sheikh Ahmad Baazmool (hafidha-hullaah)
Transcribed by: Ustaadh Abu Abdir-Rahmaan [Mehdi Al-Magribi (may Allaah preserve him)]
Imaam Ibn Seereen (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed, this Knowledge is Religion, So Examine the One You Take Your Deen-Religion From.”
Indeed, Allah (Azza-Wa-Jal) commanded this when He stated: ‘So ask the people of the Dhikr (the Reminder), if you do not know’. [21:7]. Allah commanded us to ask the people of the Dzikr, and the Salafus Saaleh have clarified that the Scholars are the people of the Dhikr. So Allaah specifying the Scholars as (those) who are to be asked is evidence that others besides them are not to be asked.
Likewise, Imaam Bukhaari and Imaam Muslim reported in the Saheehayn on the authority of Aa’isha (radiyallaahu-anhaa) that the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) recited the statement of Allah (Azza-Wa-Jal): “It is He Who has sent down to you (Muhammad) the Book (this Qur’aan) In it are Verses that are entirely clear, they are the foundations of the Book [and those are the Verses of Al-Ahkaam (commandments, etc.), Al-Faraa’id (obligatory duties) and Al-Hudud (legal laws for the punishment of thieves, adulterers, etc.)]; and others not entirely clear. So as for those in whose hearts there is a deviation (from the truth) they follow that which is not entirely clear thereof, seeking Al-Fitnah (polytheism and trials, etc.), and seeking for its hidden meanings, but none knows its hidden meanings save Allaah.’[3:7], and then said: ‘If you see those who follow thereof that is not entirely clear, then they are those whom Allaah has named [as having deviation from the truth]. So beware of them” [Reported by Bukhaari in Kitaab At-Tafseer]
In this hadeeth is a warning against a people who give out knowledge, teach and issue verdicts. Therefore, their condition must be known. Imaam Nawawi (rahimahullaah) said: “In this hadeeth is a warning against mixing with the people of deviation, the people of innovation and those who seek after the difficult affairs (of the Religion); seeking trials and tribulations by way of it. They are not to be approved of, rather (they are to be) restrained and subdued just as Umar Ibnul Khattaab (radiyallaahu-anhu) subdued Sabeeq Bin Asl when he sought after the Mutashaabih.
