Our shaykh, the scholar of Hadeeth, Wasī-Allah bin Muhammad Abbãs, May Allah preserve him, said:

So we advise every Muslim, [who has been blessed with] insight/mental perception in his religion, is merciful to his own soul and a [sincere] advisor to himself, do not surrender [the] steering of his [or her] intellect, his [or her] thinking, his [or her] creed and his [or her] deed[s] to [one who is] not infallible, no matter how high his status in Ilm (knowledge), taqwa (piety) and salaah (righteousness).
