Taming Some of The Hasty and Overzealous Youth

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful The Bestower of Mercy

Shaikh Raslaan (may Allaah preserve him) said:

It is incumbent upon (a person) to be acquainted with what he criticises and what he is not to criticise, and to make a distinction between what he commends and what he not to commend; and if not, then there will be involvement in disparaging (one) who is not to be disparaged or praising without a right reason.  And indeed Al-Haafidh Ibn Hajr (rahimahullaah) summarized this (affair) in his statement:

‘’Recommendation is accepted from the one who is acquainted with its reasons and not from the one who is not acquainted with it; so that he (the one who has no acquaintance with such reasons) may not give a recommendation solely based on what is apparent in the begining without pursuing (the affair practically) and without examination.  Likewise, it is obligatory that disparagement and commendation are not accepted except from a person who is trustworthy and cautious. And disparagement is not accepted from one who exceeds the limits in it, so he disparages with what does not necessitate rejection of the narration of a Muhaddith, just as (recommendation) is not accepted from the one who solely holds on to the apparent (affair of a person) and then gives a commendation.’’ [Source:Dawaabit At-Tabdee: page: 61-62]
