For those who are engaged in literary pursuits, research and penmanship and are also endowed with an awareness of the worth and merit of knowledge, the norms of qualitative analysis of the thought of others and the difficulties encountered in making a correct and objective assessment, there is nothing more distasteful than to take an attitude of partisanship for the condemnation of another scholar or class of scholars, or to deny their achievements.
Indeed. a man of letters is more largehearted in comparison to the member of any other guild. He is ever willing to acknowledge and make use of the findings of not only his predecessors but also of his contemporaries and even youngsters. Injustice in passing a judgement or denial of the merits and achievements of others are verily against the teachings of the Our’an and foreign to Islamic morality.
