Shaykh Ibrāheem bin ’Āmir ar-Ruhaylī (hafidhahullāh) stated in his book an-Naseehah:
“From the widespread mistakes is that when a scholar’s refutation of an opposer is issued, or a fatwa warning against an error, is to require many students who ascribe themselves to the Sunnah, the ’Ulama and the Students of Knowledge, to “clarify their position” towards that refutation or that fatwa. The matter has even reached the extent that certain junior students of knowledge, rather, common people, are required to make their stance clear on the refuter and on the one being refuted.
Furthermore, they base their loyalty and disavowal on that issue, and abandon people due to it. It may even reach the extent that due to this some students abandon some of their Shaykhs with whom they have benefitted in terms of knowledge and creed for many years. This fitnah can even possibly reach the home, such that you will find someone abandoning his brother, or father, or perhaps even divorce his wife, and separate between the children due to such reasons.”
