Mistakes of Some of the Sincere Ones (i.e. the Scholars) Are a trial for others – [By Al-Allaamah Abdur-Rahmaan Bin Yahyah Al-Mu’allimee (rahimahullaah)]


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

Mistakes of Some of The Sincere Ones Are a Trial for Others, As to Whether They Will Follow the Truth or Be Deceived by the Status of That Sincere Person

Al-Allaamah Abdur-Rahmaan Bin Yahyah Al-Mu’allimee (rahimahullaah) said:

”And know that indeed Allaah causes some of the sincere ones to fall into some mistake as a trial for others, as to whether they will follow the truth and abandon his speech, or be deceived by his virtuousness and lofty (status)? He (i.e. this sincere scholar) is excused, rather he is rewarded for his Ijtihaad (Ref 1) and intention for good, and he is not degraded. However, the one who follows him (out of being) deceived by his great (status) without turning towards the real evidences in Allaah’s Book (i.e. the Qur’aan) and the Sunnah of His Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wa-Alaa-aalihi-wasallam), he is not excused, rather he is upon a great danger”. (Ref 2)
