Question: Some of the youth listen to the talks of speakers who are known for Ḥizbiyyah. When they are advised, they respond by saying that there is found some good in these talks. So is there good in them that justifies listening to them? This doubt has affected many people, and that is this idea of “taking the truth and leaving the falsehood” from every person.
Note: Mubashshir Ibn Ismaʿeel al-Halabi, Abu Ismaʿeel (d. 200H, rahimahullāh), said: “It was said to Imām al-’Awzāʿee (d. 157H), ‘There is a man who says, ‘I will sit with Ahlus-Sunnah and with Ahlul-Bidʿah.’’ So Imām al-’Awzāʿee said: ‘This man wishes to bring together the Truth and falsehood.’” (Collected by Ibn Battah in al-Ibānatul Kubrā). Imām al-Awzāʿee was Abu ʿAmr ʿAbdur-Rahmān Ibn ʿAmr Ibn Abu ʿAmr al-Awzāʿee (d. 157 H, rahimahullāh), a faqeeh (jurist), and trustworthy (thiqah).
