In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Do we blindly follow the Scholars: [Shaikh Rabee, Shaikh Ubaid, Shaikh Fawzaan, Shaikh Zaid etc] or the Salafi students within and outside of the UK- Where is your proof?!
Ibn Abdul-Barr (rahimahullaah) said:
“According to the scholars, Taqleed (i.e. blind adherence) is other than Ittibaa [i.e. adherence to an authentic affair narrated from the Messenger-sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) and obviously with the correct understanding of the Salaf]; because ittibaa is to follow a person based on what is apparent to you of the superiority of his statement and soundness of his school of thought. And Taqleed is that you speak with his statement, whilst you neither know the angle of his speech nor its meaning and you reject speech besides it; or his mistake is made manifest to you, but you follow him and venerate his opposition, whilst the corruptness of his speech is clear to you. This is what is forbidden to speak with in the religion of Allaah (The Most High)”
