On Checking Hadiths Without Mentioning Which Are Authentic and Weak
by The Albaani Blog
The Imaam said, “Someone who devotes himself to checking hadiths without clarifying which are authentic or weak is like someone who performs wudoo but doesn’t pray. Checking hadiths is a means and knowing what is authentic and weak is the goal—what is the point of checking hadiths if it isn’t accompanied with a clarification of its grading?”
