Tale Carrying; And The Danger Of The One Who Carries Tales And Hastens To Destroy The Relationship Between The Students Of Knowledge
We have also seen how destructive it is when the people carry tales about spouses. That so and so is doing this and so and so is doing this. And most of the time, it is done with the intent to cause enmity between the spouses out of jealousy and hatred.
We need to be brothers towards one another and sisters towards the sisters, may Allah bless all of you.
So the tale carrying is also applicable to the relationship between the spouses, just ask Shaykh Saaleh al Fawzaan gave the definition of tale carrying to be: “Tale carrying is to transmit speech between the people with the intent of destroying their relationships.”
May Allah keep us away from this sin of tale carrying and preserve all the relationships between ourselves. Ameen.
- The truth is one as Imaam Maalik stated with regards to the Sahaabah, radhi Allaahu ‘anhum: “There is not in the differing of the Sahaabah an allowance/excuse (for others). Indeed there is only that which is wrong or right” (Jaami’ Bayaanil-‘Ilm wal-Fadlihi). And we have been ordered with that which is right and correct. And this is in agreement with the statement of Ibn Abbaas, radhi Allaahu ‘anhu, who said: “I say: ‘The Messenger said’ and you say: ‘[But] Abu Bakr and Umar said’!”
- Differring of the scholars is not a proof. Al-Khattaabee said, “And Ikhtilaaf (in a matter) is not a proof, rather the explanation of the Sunnah is a proof against the opposers, whether they be from the first (Muslims) or the later ones.” (A’laam al-Hadeeth 3/2093). And al-Haafidh Abu Umar Ibn Abdul-Barr said, “Ikhtilaaf is not a proof in the view of anyone that I know from the Fuquhaa of this Ummah, except the one who has no vision, and who has no knowledge, and who has no proof in his saying.” (Jaami’ Bayaan ul-Ilm 2/229)
- Aboo Ishaaq Ibraaheem ibn Muhammad Al-Isfiraayeenee, the mujtahid imaam, the Shaafi’ee ‘Allaamah, of the 4th-5th century, said: القول بأن كل مجتهد مصيب أوله سفسطة وآخره زندقة
“The saying that every mujtahid is correct, it is sophistry (denial of reality) from its beginning, and zandaqah (hypocrisy/disbelief) to its end.” [Siyaru A’laam An-Nubalaa’, Risaalah, 11th printing, 1417]
As for the sophistry of the statement, then it is denying that the Truth is one, not many.
As for its zandaqah, then it is the fact that this statement is used to destroy the principles of the Religion so much so that a person can do whatever he likes with no limit, since he can always search for a mujtahid who made an error in favor of his desires. Thus, he ends up with no Deen in the end, a zindeeq.
