Have you seen a jurist with your own eyes?

Reference: Siyar A’laam an-Nubalaa – Volume 4, Page 563

‘Imraan al-Qaseer said:

I asked al-Hasan al-Basree about something, and said [to him]: The jurists are saying such-and-such.

So he (al-Hasan al-Basree) said:

And have you seen a jurist with your own eyes? Rather, the jurist is an ascetic in this world, [and one who] has sound knowledge about his religion, and is consistent in the worship of his Lord.

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.
