by Abu Abdullah Ibne Ismail
“Through reading a book the reader develops a certain attachment to the writer of the book. Similar is the case with lectures.
Therefore before reading any book or listening to any lecture one needs to ensure that the author or the speaker’s beliefs are correct.
This is because by reading or listening once one will be inclined to read or listen to more. Thus one may begin to learn much which is contrary to the Qur’aan and hadeeth.”
