A youth wrote a poem in praise of shaikh Ibn Uthaymeen (rahimahullah), and recited it to him saying, "As long as Ibn Saaleh (i.e. the shaikh ibn uthaymeen) is amongst us, the sheikh of our revival. With his likes we wish for support and victory" The sheikh interrupted him saying, "I do not agree with this line. Because I don't want the truth to be attributed to individuals. Everyone makes mistakes. If we attribute the truth to individuals, and this person dies, the people will fall into desperation." So the sheikh instructed the youth to change his line to, "As long as we have the book of Allah and sunnah of His Messenger (sallalahu alaihe wasallam)", as that would be better.The sheikh then stopped the you from reciting further, and explained ..."I advice you now and always, not to tie the truth to men.Firstly, men can stray. Even Ibn Masood (radiallahu anhu) said, 'Whoever wants to follow someone, then follow those who have passed away, because the living are not safe from fitnah (trials)'If you attribute the truth to men a person could be deceived by himself, and we seek refuge of Allah from that, and adopt wrong ways. So I advice you not to atribut the truth to men. Firstly, a man is not safe, I ask Allah to make us firm, not safe from mistake and trials.Secondly, he will die, no one remains alive. 'And We granted not to any human being immortality before you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم): then if you die, would they live forever?' [21:34]Thirdly, the sons of Aadam, humans, may be deceived if he sees the people honoring him and flocking to him. He might be deceived. He might thnk he is infallible or claim that he is as such and believe that everything he does is the truth. And tha every path he takes is permissible. This could reac his destruction.A man praised another man in the presence of the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihe wa-sallam). The Prophet said to him, 'Woe to you, you have cut the neck of your friend or (his back)'"The Shaikh, however thanked the youth for his good opinion about him. And asked Allah, to make him as he had been perceived in goodness, and more. And the Shaikh finally stated, "But I don't like to be praised"

Abg Hasan said: The Question is which is worse...delaying the Salaah or worshipping Allah upon bid'aa? Yes, I know I have faults and I know what they are, while others just have faults period.Imam As-Shaafi'ee said:Let not your tongue mention the shame of another. For you yourself are covered in shame and all men have tongues. If your eye falls upon the sins of your brother, shield them and say: “O my eye! All men have eyes!”May Allah forgive us for our sins and our shortcomings and may Allah rectify our affairs and guide us to the haqq. Ameen

Bismillahhirrahmanirrahim,Assalamu'alaikum warahmatullah hiwabarakatuh,Allahhumma Salli 'Ala Muhammad. Firstly, it's not about a person must not have a mistake (yeah, i know people do mistakes often). but i just want to say that I too feel dissappointed as someone feel dissappointed towards me and my brother cause we're NOT SURE where Allah is; above seven sky or everywhere (just for example)[and now we know, thanks to that person]. So, it is DISSAPPOINTED, not even about ' He/She must not have a MISTAKE '. Of course not.. Secondly, it is not which is worse..delaying Saalah or worshipping Allah upon bid'aa. I'm not comparing its. Both have its own harmful. And, I'm not mention the shame of another. Am I telling who I refer to? Even he/she is a man/woman is unknown. Isn't?Oh ya, like you state, Shaykh ibn Uthaymeen said : " Just as I have mentioned previously, the cure to that which you suspect to be a mistake is to telephone the one whom you suspect has made the mistake and discuss the issue with him, then consider your position after the discussion. ".Yeah, right. But i'm not brave enough to reprimand him/her."Selemah-lemah iman dalam menegur kemungkaran adalah membenci perbuatan tersebut di dalam hati". Honestly, i'm not strong enough -am trying-. At least, i write it in blog, so that other people can make benefit (biiznillah) that delaying our Saalah is not thing that we can underestimated. May Allah bless us, InsyaAllah.Waalaik.
