...And every one who takes a shaykh or a scholar, [to be one who] is followed in everything that he says and does, making allegiance based upon [one being] in agreement with him [ie. the scholar] and showing enmity based upon [one being] in opposition to him [ie. the scholar], other than [the] Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa salam); Consequently, he is an astray innovator outside of the Book [of Allah] and the Sunnah [of His Messenger].
