Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin Al-Abbaad was asked the following question:


I am a youth from outside this land and I studied Aqeedah with its people. I have been brought up since I was young upon the Salafi Aqeedah, all praise is due to Allah. My society is led by ignorance. So it is allowed for me to take knowledge of Fiqh alone from a man accused of innovation in Aqeedah? What is your opinion in this? He has prudence and concern for Fiqh and he does not speak about the issues of Aqeedah. If it is correct that he is an innovator, then he is not a caller to innovation?


If you are a cause for his guidance, then this is something good. If this is not something that will occur, then what is more deserving is to search for someone who is sound and benefit from him and you will keep safe from the sittings of the people of innovation.

[Sharh Sunan Abu Dawood no.359]
