Warning Against People Upon The Sunnah – Shaykh Abdul Mohsin Al-Abbaad

Shaykh Abdul Mohsin Al-Abbaad said, “Being preoccupied with warning [against other people upon the sunnah] and being engrossed with the people [of the sunnah] and [with]:

“What do you say about so and so?”

“And what do you say about so and so?”

“Should so and so be warned against?”

“So and so is not to be warned against!”

Brothers, all some people know is warning, busying themselves with warning—whilst not knowing a thing about the most rudimentary aspects of knowledge—he only busies himself with issues such as these.

So it is not fitting that a Muslim’s concern be to speak about people or to ask about statements made about people, and that his sole preoccupation be connected to people. He should busy himself with knowledge and should not let his tongue loose concerning the people.

Yes, it is possible to warn against a person whose evil, disobedient sinning, and harm has become apparent, but not everyone who makes a mistake or who slips up is to be warned against—because if that were the case there wouldn’t be anyone who is not warned against! And who is there who has never sinned? And who is there who has good deeds only?

[Also he further] said, “…A person must guard his good deeds and not squander them [via backbiting others and slandering them with unjustified warnings against a person upon the sunnah], he must not distribute them amongst the people, but must guard them for himself and leave off busying himself with people [of the sunnah] and warning against them, he must preoccupy himself with beneficial knowledge, teaching it if he is qualified to teach and if not, then he learns.”
