A Hadeeth Regarding the Grave Danger of Passing Judgements Based On Ignorance or Desires

Buraydah narrated from his father, who narrated that the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said:

”Judges are of three types, one of whom will go to Paradise and two to Hell. A man who knows the truth and judges with it will enter paradise; a man who knows the truth but judges with the opposite of it will enter the fire, and a man who judges for the people based on ignorance will enter the fire.’’
