Shaikh Muhammad ibn Hadi Al-Madkhali: Does One Who Lies on the Scholars Leave the Fold of Salafiyyah? 

Shaykh

 

Question:

It says: Does a man leave the fold of Salafiyyah when he lies on the scholars?

Answer:

No, he doesn’t leave the fold of Salafiyyah, but he becomes an evil doing, lying Salafi. His reports are not to be used as evidence, nor are his statements to be accepted; he is one who has lost his standing as a morally upright individual and acceptability as a witness.
