Benefit: The Main Body of Salafis in Your Land Know Your Reality
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
The narrator who is severely criticized by the people of Ḥadīth in his land is not increased by the praise of foreigners except in loss. This is because he deliberately causes confusion regarding his condition. He embellishes himself—to these foreigners—with correct narrations, so they assume that this is his state of affair, and based upon this, they praise him. However, the people of his land know his reality!
