Imaam Ibn Hibbaan reported in Al-Majrooheen from Amr Ibn Muhammad An-Naaqib that he heard a man asking Imaam Wakee Ibn Jarraah a question, saying: ”Do you know the hadeeth of Sa-eed Ibn Ubaid At-Tanaaqosee transmitted on the authority of Shabi, about a man who performed hajj for another person and then perform hajj for himself?”  Imaam Wakee asked him, saying: ”Who narrated the Hadeeth?” He said: ”It was narrated by Wahb Ibn Ismaa-eel.”  So Imaam Wakee said: ”Wahb is a righteous man, but the affair of hadeeth is dependent on knowledge of the condition of its narrators and this has its men.” [End of Quote: This incident was related by Shaikh Abdullaah Bukhaari in At-Taleeqaat Ar-Radiyyah alal Mandhoomah Al-Bayqooniyyah Lesson 2]

Therefore, it is important that we return to the scholars in order to place everyone in their rightful place.  Inshaa-Allaah, this is the safeguard from exaggeration or falling short in this affair.  And Allaah knows best.
