Shaykh Rabee said, “…If someone is spoken about, study his case, and take the statements of the criticizers and understand them and make sure that they are established (statements).
Therefore, if this becomes clear to you then one should judge upon careful scrutiny and contentment (meaning that the evidences that are established are clear) not blindfollowing to this one or that one or being partisan to this one or that one. Take this as a principle and relay them to those opposers so that they know the truth and take themselves out of the group of partisans upon falsehood.
And I am not pleased with anyone being partisan toward me ever. If I am incorrect then say it to me, whoever stops at an error from me then (say) you erred.
May Allah bless you, and do not be partisan to this one or that one.
No one should be partisan to the mistakes of Ibn Taymiyah, (Mohammed) Ibn Abdul Wahhab, Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, Ash Shafi’ee, not to anyone.
Verily the fanaticism is for the truth and respecting the truth. And it is obligatory to dislike the mistake and falsehood.”
