Question: Does the seeker of knowledge, who is a beginner, disparage and praise men (make jarh and ta'deel) and declare people to be innovators without [his claim] being founded upon any supporting evidence?
Answer: It is not allowed for the seeker of knowledge who is a beginner to disparage (make jarh) or to declare a person to be an innovator due to what he himself feels. But however, he should take from the speech of the People Of Knowledge (the Scholars) who are relied upon. And there is no harm if he transmits from one of the Scholars if he is certain of their speech in disparagement, and with Allaah lies the success.
