Ask, but don’t mention names

Reference: Safahaat Mushriqah min Hayaat al-’Imaam Muhammad ibn Saalih al-’Uthaymeen – Page 115

Sa’d ibn Matar al-Murshidee narrates :

‘He would not accept any ill speech being mentioned of anyone in front of him, and he would refuse to answer questions which would mention ill of people – [and the] names of those from amongst the scholars and the du’aat. He would [then] affirm [his stance] upon the questioner [saying]:

“Have I not told you to ask but not to mention names of people? I will therefore not be answering your question.”’

He is a graduate of the Islaamic University of Madeenah, having graduated from the Institute of Arabic Language, and later the Faculty of Sharee'ah in 2004. He currently resides in Birmingham, UK.
