In the Name of Allaah,the Most Gracious,the Most Merciful
From Muhammad bin Sireen –rahimahullaah- who said:
“Indeed there were a people who left seeking knowledge and the gatherings of the Scholars.
They took to praying and fasting a lot, so much so that their skins had become dried on to their bones.
Then they opposed the Sunnah and they were destroyed. They spilt the blood of the Muslims.
I swear by Allaah whom there is none other worthy of worship, no one did an action based upon ignorance except that he caused more evil than rectification.”
