by The Noble Shaikh, Saalih Al-Fawzaan
"...And indeed extremism could be in the matter of jurisprudence blind following (Taqleed Fiqhee) and blind following of sectarian parties (Taqleed Hizbee), and that is by bigotted adherence to the opinions of the Imaams, such that they (those opinions) are made as though they are revelation that was revealed (from Allaah). They (those opinions) are treated as though it is not permissible to abandon them for the correct and most probably right opinion according to the evidences. This is just as has occurred from the bigotted adherents to the Fiqh scholars, and also from the leaders of the sectarian groups today who riggedly adhere to their groups and their parties, and they warn against anyone else besides themselves, even if those besides them are upon the truth..."
