Our noble Shaikh Zaid al-Madkhlay was questioned concerning an individual who refuses to accept the ruling of the scholars in their refutations against – and exiting out of salafiyyah – those who oppose the methodology of the salaf…instead he states “I am not convinced”, or “that is the opinion of the shaikh, it’s not upon me to accept it”.
قولي فيمن يرد حكم العلماء الذين يردون على من خالف منهج السلف الصالح أنه : متكبر
I say concerning the one who rejects the ruling of the scholars who refute the opposers of the methodology of the righteous salaf; he is arrogant…..
لأن حكم العلماء السائرين على نهج السلف الصالح في العقيدة والشريعة حق ولا يرد الحق إلا ظالم ولا سيما إذا كان الراد لحكم العلماء يعلم أن المخالف لمنهج السلف منحرف عن الحق
….because the ruling of the scholars who are treading upon the methodology of the righteous salaf in ‘aqeedah and legislation is the truth, and the truth is not rejected except by a wrong-doer, especially if the rejector of the ruling of the scholars knows that the opposer of the methodology of the salaf (the one being refuted) is deviated from the truth.
