From the Guidance of Our Salaf (predecessors)


From the Guidance of Our Salaf:

Muhammad bin Sahm said: I heard ‘Ataa’ bin Muslim al-Khafaaf mention from al-A’maash, who said: “They used to not ask about a man after 3: who he walked with, who he entered upon, and who his friends were from amongst the people.” [Al-Ibaanah of Ibn Battah (#419)]

Al-Fudhayl bin ‘Iyyaad said: “The souls are enlisted soldiers, so those that became familiar with one another (from before) will be inclined (towards each other), and those from amongst them that were opposed will differ, and it is not possible that a person of Sunnah can be inclined towards a person of bid’ah except due to nifaaq.” [Al-Ibaanah (#429)]

Imaam Al-Barbahaaree said in his Sharhus-Sunnah: “If anything of bid’ah appears in a person, beware of him, since what is hidden from you is more than what is apparent. However, if you see a person whose manners and opinion is despicable, he is wicked, sinful and oppressive, yet he is a person of the Sunnah, accompany him and sit with him, since his sin will not harm you.”
