Be a Man who Recognises Men According to the Truth and not One who Recognises the Truth According to Men
by The Albaani Site
The Imaam said, after having pointed out Imaam at-Tabari was mistaken in some statements:
“I say this, and I am aware of his knowledge and his excellence and his worth—but the worth of the statements of Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم is more significant to me than any man after him.
So be a man who recognises men according to the Truth and not one who recognises the Truth according to men.
And Allaah’s Aid is sought.”
