Being Preoccupied With Criticizing Groups & Neglecting Knowledge – Shaykh Ahmed An-Najmee

Shaykh Ahmad Bin Yahyaa An-Najmee asserted, “Frankly, it is incumbent not to be excessive in these matters* in a way that takes the student of knowledge out of the realm of truth into disputation and wasting time on speech that brings no benefit, rather man keeps going in closed circles.

The seeker of knowledge must utilize his time in the obedience of his Lord, and in seeking knowledge and attending study circles. There is no harm if he listens to warning against them (ahlu bidah) and clarifying their (ahlu bidahs) characteristics so that he takes his precaution from them.

As if we spend all of our times speaking about them (ahlu bidah) and we do not seek the knowledge which benefits us, without a doubt that is a huge and great mistake.”

Ref: Al-Fataawaa Al-Jaliyyah p27-28

Footnote:

*(My words) Not to be excessive in speaking about the people of partisanship (the hizbiyyoon) by spenting most of your time speaking about them and making your prime concern asking others ‘what is your opinion about so and so’ and dominating most of your gathering with such speech.
