قال أبو محمد: وسَمِعْتُ أَبِي وأَبا زُرْعَة يَأْمُرَانِ بِهُجْرَانِ أَهْلِ الزَّيغِ والبِدْعِ يُغَلِّظَانِ في ذَلِكَ أَشَدَّ التَّظْلِيغِ وَيُنْكِرَانِ وَضْعَ الكُتُبِ بِرِأَي فِي غَيْرِ آثَارٍ
[ِAbu Muhammad (the author) said: I heard my father and Abu Zur’ah command with boycotting the People of Deviation and Innovation. And they were both hard and stern in their view regarding this matter. And they would forbid the writing of books based upon opinions without reference to the narrations (the Sunnah and the speech of the Companions).]
وَيَنْهَيانِ عَن مُجَالَسَةِ أَهْلِ الكَلامِ والنَّظَرِ في كُتُبِ المُتَكَلِّمِينَ ويَقُولانِ لا يفلحُ صَاحِبُ الكلام أبدًا
