Ash-Shaykh, al-Imaam ‘Abdul-‘Azeez bin ‘Abdillaah bin Baaz ( ) رﺣﻤﻪ اﷲ ﺗﻌﺎﻟﻰ said:
“And it is known with certainty that the taalibul-‘Ilm (student of knowledge) in reality, he is the one who distinguishes al-Haqq (the Truth) from baatil (falsehood) with it’s manifest proofs and clear evidences, and he reads the books of the guided Imaams, and he takes from them what is in agreement with the Haqq, and he leaves that which it’s falsehood is apparent and is not in agreement with the Haqq.”
[From his book Ahamiyyatul-‘Ilm (The Importance of Knowledge), page 34]
