The reviver of the era, Al-Imaam Al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah) said :
” O you Muslim! Be diligent and strive to know your religion from The Book of your Lord , and the Sunnah of your prophet (sallahAllaahu alayhi wasallam).
And do not say : ‘so – and – so said ….’
For Indeed the truth is not known by men.
Rather get to learn the truth ; and then you will know the (true condition of the) men.”
