Imithaan (Testing People) Is Only By Way Of The Scholars And Not Students Of Knowledge And Innovators – Shaykh Ubayd Al-Jabiree, Shaykh Fu’aad Al-Amri And Shaykh Zayd Al-Madkhalee

Shaykh Zayd Al-Madkhalee said, “Testing the people with Ahlu Sunnah is not restricted to a particular person [i.e. scholar] or people [i.e. a particular group of scholars upon the sunnah]. Rather, the people are tested with every person [scholar] of the Sunnah in every time and place.” Ref:

Shaykh Fu’aad Al-Amri said, “…This matter [of testing people] is not to be done with students of knowledge, rather the imtihaan is done by way of the scholars. Except in the case where the scholars make imtihaan of people by way of some students of knowledge due to them being the only ones on the Sunnah in their locality. Therefore, the scholars make imtihaan of the people in that locality by way of them. In this case we make imtihaan of others by way of these students.” Ref:

Shaykh Ubayd Al-Jabiree said, “…Imtihaan (testing) is to revolve around the people of virtue and taqwaa…[So] they [the people] may be given an imtihaan, they may be asked about the most virtuous of the people, the most pious of the scholars…

As for the people of innovation, then they are not to be the subject of an imtihaan. Their opposition to the Sunnah is to be clarified [via public refutations] and the people are not to be tested regarding them…” Ref:
