Examine the Speech of Every Person You Hear Today

Imam al-Barbahari, may Allaah have mercy upon him said; "Examine! May Allaah have mercy upon you, the speech of every person that you hear, practically in your day and age. Do not act in haste and do not enter into anything from it until you ask and see – Did any of the companions of the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) speak concerning it or any of the scholars? For if you find a narration from them concerning it then hold tightly onto it and do not exchange it for anything nor give anything precedence over it and consequently fall into the Hell-Fire."
