Before You State Your Opinion About a Religious Matter

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Beware of deeming a [particular] understanding of a Sharīʿah matter to be good by yourself without presenting it to those who are specialized [in the matter], since it’s [considered] a flaw in a person that he rushes to have an opinion [in a matter that] his [own] level of knowledge falls short of allowing him to speak about.

Then, as a result, a false principle or erroneous rule is formed that becomes difficult for the soul, after stating it, to retract.

So before saying things that are products of your [own] understanding, check [first] to make sure they’re correct.
