The Noble Scholar Shaykh Rabee Al-Madkhalī حفظه الله stated:
We find many of the Salafis revolving around the individuals and not revolving around the truth. This is a dangerous sickness. We should be aware of revolving around individuals (instead of the truth). It is obligatory that we weigh the individuals by the truth and not weigh the truth by/according to the individuals. It is obligatory that we know the men by way of the truth and not know the truth by way of the men.
