as-salaamu 'alaykum,

at the end of this article:

after clarifying the misguidance of the raafidee shee'ah, shaykhul-islaam said the following:


When you wish to be pleased with a madh.hab for yourself
By which you will obtain nearness and safety from the Fire
Then make devotiion with the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah
That has come from the Messenger of Allaah from the Narrations of the best
And leave alone the religion of ar-Rafd and al-Bida' (innovations)
Which leads its caller to the Fire and to destitution
But traverse behind the Companions of the Messenger
For they are stars of guidance by whose light the traveller guides himself
And depart from the path of ar-Rafd
For it is founded upon disbelief, upon an undermined cliff
There are only two paths, either guidance and happiness
Or wretchedness alongside the misguidance of the Kuffaar
So which of our two parties are more worthy of His safety
And more guided in the path when the Creator will judge
Is it the one who reviles the Companions, and opposes
The Book and does not care for the affirmation of narrations
Or the one who guides himself with the Revelation
Who traverses upon the manhaj of the Sahaabah
Along with the love of the purified near ones

jazakallahu khayran for that beneficial post.
The meaning of some of this is also contained in some well-known words of poetry attributed to Imam Ahmad as well as to 'Abdah Ibn Ziyaadah Al-Asbahaanee
See "Jammi' Bayaanil-'Ilm Wa Fadlihi" Volume 1 Page 782, Ibnul Jawzi, print I,1414H.
Brother Abu Ubayd Al-Khattakiy also reminded us of these lines in a recent post and they are as follows:

دين النبي محمد أخبار       نعم المطية للفتى الآثار

لا ترغبنَّ عن الحديث وأهله    فالرأي ليل والحديث نهار

ولربما جهل الفتى أثر الهدى     والشمس بازغة لها أنوار

These invaluable lines of poetry mean something to the effect of what follows:

The Deen of the Prophet Mohammad is narrations
How wonderful it is for a youth to carry narrations as his scroll

Do not turn away from the hadeeth or its people
For opinion is night and the hadeeth is daylight

And it is possible that the youth is ignorant of the path of guidance
While the sun shines high full of radiance"

(That poetry never did sound right in English!) [corrections/suggestions  welcome]
