Check everything you hear against the Qur’an , but do not check the Qur’an against anything that you hear.

When Mu’adh Ibn Jabal  (رضي الله عنه) was stricken with the plague of ‘Amwas (from which he passed away), his companions wept over him and he said, ” Why are you weeping?” They said,”We are weeping for the knowledge which will be cut off when you die.” He said:

Knowledge and faith will abide  until the Day of Resurrection. Whoever seeks them will find them in the Qur’an and the Sunnah. Check everything you hear against the Qur’an , but do not check the Qur’an against anything that you hear.

[Sifatus Sahwah]
