In explaining the famous words of Muhammad Ibn Sireen (rahimahullah), “This knowledge is a matter of Deenso be careful who you take your Deen from”,
Shaykh Ahmad Bazmool (hafidhahullah) stated,
This matter is a matter of Deen, so be careful who you take your Deen from. This is how important this issue is. The knowledge, when one takes, hears or learns from someone, that knowledge is going to be Deen, something that is going to be weighty on the Day of Judgment; something that he is going to meetAllah with. So it is important that he takes his knowledge only from those who are known to have knowledge,taqwa and who are known to be upon righteousness, because what he takes is going to be his path to the Hereafter. So look to who you take your Deen from means that a Muslim must look and take his Deen from Ahlus Sunnah, the Salafiyoon, the ones who follow the Salaf-us-Salih and secondly, that the one whom he takes his Deen from is someone who has knowledge, known for knowledge, known for being upright and known for having taqwa. This knowledge is a matter of Deen so be careful who you take your Deen from. [Be Careful From Who You Take Your Deen From! from Salaf-us-Salih.com (with some editing)]
In addition to this, Shaykh Falaah Ibn Ismaa’eel (hafidhahullah) stated that it is a must that one determines and limits those whom he listens to, and from whom he reads from, and who he takes from, and (the works he) issues, and also who he sits with, this is very important. As for being a haatib layl (one who gathers wood at night i.e. blindly, heedlessly), listening to everyone and those who are unknown. No, it is feared that a trial will befall this one. Surely, from the signs of success from Allah and wanting good for His slave, it is uprightness and guidance that He helps him to sit, mix with and take from the people of the Sunnah. It is obligatory to have seriousness and diligence towards seeking out that which brings about success and guidance from Allah, andAllah is The One who grants success.

Shaykh ‘Abdullah adh-Dhafeeri (hafidhahullah) will admonish us concerning this crucial topic and by the Permission of Allah we will all act upon the advices given and thus exercise more caution regarding whom we listen to and take knowledge from.
We ask Allah to grant us all lasting eemaan, true certainty and beneficial knowledge.
