Imaam Ash-Shaafi’ee said “It is better for a man to be put to trial…”
Yoonus Ibn Abdil A’laa (rahimahullaah) said, ”I heard Ash-Shaafi’ee (rahimahullaah) saying, ”It is better for a man to be put to trial with everything that Allaah has forbidden except Shirk than looking into (or engaging himself in) philosophical rhetoric; for indeed I have come across affairs from the people of philosophical rhetoric, which I never thought I would come across (i.e. the deviations of the people of philosophical rhetoric).
