Defence of the Sunnah

Muhammad ibn Yahyaa adh-Dhuhalee said: I heard Yahyaa ibn Ma’een say:

Defence of the Sunnah is better than jihaad in the Path of Allaah.

So I said to Yahyaa:

[What about] the man who spends his wealth, and tires himself and makes jihaad [in the Path of Allaah] – so is he (the defender of the Sunnah) [still] better than him?

And he said:

Yes, [he is better than him] by far.
