Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan [may Allaah preserve him] said:
And all praises and thanks be to Allaah, there are scholars of the Sunnah and upright [scholars]. Allaah [Glorified be He and free is He from all imperfections] has not [left you in a state to have] a need of the evil scholars and the books of misguidance, whilst we have authentic books. Therefore, we hold onto the [upright scholars and authentic books] -neither go to the scholars of misguidance nor the innovators, nor to the books that are mixed [with falsehood]. All praises and thanks be to Allaah, we have good books and scholars, so we hold onto the scholars and the authentic books.
