Ibn Abi Layla [d. 83 AH] – The Salaf and Issuing Fataawa [rulings]

Ibn Abi Layla – “I have met 120 Companions of the Messenger of Allaah ﷺ in this Masjid – none of them, when asked about a matter regarding a hadith or a verdict, except they wished their peers sufficed them [by answering on their behalf] and today the matter has reached a people who profess knowledge [and appraise themselves scholars] – who readily propose themselves for answering questions [that are so serious] that if these [same] questions [and matters] were presented to ‘Umar b. al-Khattab, he would gather the people of Badr for consultation [before ever responding].”
