From The Blessings Of The Scholars Of The Sunnah, By Imaam Ahmad


Imaam Ahmad said:

All praise be to Allaah Who placed in every era, after the period of the Messengers, remnants from the people of knowledge, who call those who deviated to guidance, and who have patience with their harm.

And with the book of Allaah they revive the dead, and with the light of Allaah they cause the blind to see.

So how many people whom the Devil has killed have they revived? And how many people who were lost and astray, have they guided? So what a great effect do they have upon the people! And what an ugly effect to the people have upon them!

They (the Scholars) take away from the Book of Allaah, the distortions of the extremists, the false claims of the liars and the wrong interpretations of the ignorant.
