Proficiency Has to Be Accompanied By Trustworthiness – [A Short Faa’idah From Shaikh Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah)]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
We add trustworthiness as an additional characteristic alongside proficiency, because proficiency is a strength and it has to be accompanied by trustworthiness. Allaah said:

 إِنَّ خَيْرَ مَنِ اسْتَأْجَرْتَ الْقَوِيُّ الْأَمِينُ

Verily, the best of men for you to hire is the strong, the trustworthy. [Surah Al-Qasas’ Aayah 26]

It maybe that a scholar is proficient and vast in knowledge, able to derive and explain subsidiary issues from fundamental principles, as well as categorise, distinguish and place different subject matters in their appropriate place; but he is not trustworthy and might misguide you from where you do not know.

Sharh Hilyati Taalibil Ilm. page 79. Slightly paraphrased.
