Some Insightful Statements of Shaikh Muhammad Bin Haadi–Transmitted by Ustaadh Abu Khadeejah

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

 Shaikh Muhammad Bin Haadi (may Allaah preserve him) said:

The scholar Al-Ijlee is known to be lenient (has tasaahul) in hadeeth, but he is slightly better than Ibn Hibbaan.  There are many examples that show the tasaahul of Al-Ijlee. The scholars have mentioned the fact that he has this trait and this is a jarh. If some scholars such as Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibn Rajab & adh-Dhahabee rely on the narrations of al-Ijlee or of Ibn Hibbaan – then we ask why? The answer is that relying on the narrations of these two in the absence of any opposing narrations is better than having nothing at all.  And it is possible for a man to be a great Aalim, Imaam but he is lax when it comes to judging men. That is present even now in this day. A Scholar who delivers fatawa in halaal and haraam, however when it comes to judging men, he praises everyone! Is this not overly lenient?! Yes indeed, rather it is the embodiment of over-leniency. And a scholar’s skill in one field doesn’t necessitate skill in other fields. So possessing knowledge is a field, one’s Imaamship in knowledge is a field, and profiency and precision in Jarh wa ta’deel is another field. And even more severe than that is one who is considered a Haafidh yet he is disparaged by the scholars of hadeeth and jarh wa ta’deel. Shaikh Muhammad continued:  Yes this is possible – A Scholar memorises much hadeeth, yet he himself is disparaged for something or another. [ Source:]
