Shaykh Rabee' on the small students warning against the Mukhaalifoon

Questioner: "Oh Shaykh, a fatwa has been quoted from you that al-Jarh wat-Ta'deel is only for the Major Scholars and not for the small [ones] in knowledge?"

Shaykh Rabee' : "Yes, this is concerning the subject of riwaayah (i.e. pertaining to the narrators)."

Questioner: "Fine oh Shaykh, if I found a man reviling the scholars or mixing with the Innovators, and then I advised him, but he did not stop, then do I warn from him?"

Shaykh Rabee': "Yes, because this is from the subject of shahaadah (witnessing, observing), and shahaadah is shared by both the scholar and the ignorant one.

And then this is a munkar and all the people, the scholar and the ignorant one have been commanded to reject the munkar.

If you saw a man for example, drinking alcohol, then we show rejection to him, because these affairs are known and are not hidden matters."...
