[Taareekh Baghdaad, 12/410]

Al-Fudayl Ibn ‘Iyyaad said:

[Sharh Usool ‘Itiqaad Ahlis-Sunnah Wal-Jamaa’ah, 1/138]

Yahya Ibn Yahyaa An-Naisabooree said:

“Defending the Sunnah is more virtuous than jihaad.”

[Naqd Al-Mantiq, p.12]

Raafi’ Ibn Ashras said:

“It used to be said, ‘From the punishments of the liar is that his credibility is not accepted.’ And I say that from the punishment of the sinful innovator is that his good qualities are not mentioned.”

[Sharh ‘Ilal At-Tirmidhee, 1/50]
