Imam Al-Mu’alimi Al-Yamani d. 1386H (may Allah shower him with Mercy) said:

“Some of the companions of the Messenger of Allah (Peace and Blessings of Allah upon him) used to travel from Medina to Egypt to meet with another companion to verify from him one narration which they heard together from the Messenger of Allah (Peace and Blessings of Allah upon him)!!

That is how they were, but now you would find one of us too lazy to take a few steps to another scholar, or [even] too stingy to spend a few fils in order to purchase some stamps to write to another scholar.

And how often does a scholar fault in a particular matter, but his brothers from among the scholars do not care [enough] to visit him and remind him [of his fault], or [even] write him about it, rather the most one of them does is to publish his objection in a magazine or in a treaty rebuking that scholar and attributing him to ignorance, or even attributing him to Bid’ah or Kufr, which would result in opposite to what is intended.

And how often are the matters in which the fatwa is issued in Egypt in a certain way, and in Shaam contrary to it, and in India with something different! And if only continuous correspondence was established between the Scholars we would not have fallen into all this disorder, which expands the division [of the Ummah] and leads to disputes and animosity.

As for the medicine used these days, namely Takfeer [of others] and declaring them as misguided, then it only aids in increasing the illness in severity, and its likeness is that of a man who leprosy appeared in few of his fingers, so he cut them off!

Then it appeared in another, so he cut it off!!

So he was told: Be patient with yourself before you end up cutting off all your limbs!”

قال العلامة المعلمي رحمه الله تعالى:ـ

لقد كان بعض أصحاب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم – يسافر من المدينة إلى مصر ليجتمع بصحابي آخر هنالك ليستثبته في حديث واحد سمعاه معاً من النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم !!ـ

إلى أن قال رحمه الله :ـ
هكذا كان القوم ، فأصبح أحدنا يتثاقل عن بعضع خطوات يمشيها إلى عالم ، أو يضنّ ببضعة أَفْلُس يبتاع بها طوابع للبريد ليكتب بها إلى عالم.ـ

وكم من عالم أخطأ في مسألة فلم يهتم إخوانه من العلماء بأن يزوروه ويذاكروه فيها ، أو يكاتبوه في شأنها ، بل غاية ما يصنع أحدهم أن ينشر اعتراضه في مجلة أو رسالة يشنع على ذلك العالم ويجهله ، أو يبدعه ويكفره ، فتكون النتيجة عكس المطلوب .ـ

وكم من مسائل يفتى فيها بمصر بشيء ، وبالشام بخلافه ، وفي الهند بخلاف ذلك ، ولو كانت المواصلات جارية بين العلماء لما وقع هذا الخبط الشديد الذي يوسع خرق الافتراق ويؤول إلى النزاع والشقاق .ـ

وعلماء الدين أحوج الناس إلى التواصل والتعاون خصوصاً في العصر الذي تفشى فيه وباء الإلحاد ، وقلت الرغبة في العلوم الدينية ، بل كادت تعم النُّفْره عنها ، واستغنى كل أحد برأيه.

فأما الدواء المعروف الآن ، وهو التكفير والتضليل ، فإنه لا يزيد الداء إلا إعضالا ، ومثله مثل رجل ظهر ببعض أصابعه برص فقطعها ! فظهر البرص بأخرى فقطعها !! فقيل له : حنانيك قبل أن تقطع جميع أعضائك !
