5. The people of the Sunnah and the Jamaa’ah warn against adherence to one’s desires and clinging to weak narrations and unreasonable or harmful opinions.
While a student in Yemen, I was blessed to make trip to visit one of our beloved scholars well known for adherence to the Sunnah in Hudaydah,Yemen, the cultivating scholar Sheikh Muhammad Ibn ‘Abdul-Wahhab al-Wasaabee, may Allaah have mercy upon him, in the month of Shawwal 1425H (December, 2004CE).
These are from the important benefits taken from translated answers to my questions which Sheikh al-Wasaabee conveyed to me, Abu Sukhailah. Among the matters I asked him about were – general advice for my household, and to inform me of who were the guiding scholars of our present age, and the success is from Allaah.
