The Noble Scholar Shaykh Sulaymān Ar-Ruhaylī حفظه الله stated
I encourage the students of knowledge to not pay attention to the innovated principles during the times of Fitan. Indeed they are detailed (innovated) principles (invented) for the support of something (specific), (having) an angle (and agenda) or the likes of that. It's not for the purpose of establishing truth. Upon you is (to hold to) the old affair.
