He ﷺ said: 'May you be bereaved of your mother O Ziyad! I used to consider you among the Fuqaha (learned man) among the people of Al-Madinah. The Tawrah and Injil are with the Jews and Christians, but what benefit it gives to them?'" Jubair said: "So I met 'Ubadah bin As-Samit (RA) and said to him: ‘Did you hear what your brother Abu Ad-Darda (RA) said?' Then I told him what Abu Ad-Darda said. He said: 'Abu Ad-Darda spoke the truth.

Abdur-Rahman bin Aban bin Uthman narrated from his father who said: "Zaid bin Thabit (RA) came out from Marwan during the middle of the day. We said: 'He had not sent for him at this hour except to ask him about something.' So, we got and asked him, and he confirmed, ‘yes’, he asked us about few things which we had heard from the apostle of Allah ﷺ. I heard the Apostle of Allah ﷺ saying: "May Allah gladden a man who hears a Hadith from us, so he memorizes it until he conveys it to someone else. May be he carries Fiqh to one who is more learned than him, and perhaps the one who carries the Fiqh is not himself a Faqih."
Simak bin Harb said: "I heard Abdur-Rahman bin Abdullah bin Mas'ud narrating from his father who said: 'I heard Allah’s Apostle ﷺ say: 'May Allah gladden a man who hears something from us, so he conveys it as he heard it. May be the one it is conveyed to is more learned than the one who heard it.'"
Narrated from Abdullah bin Mas'ud (RA) that the Prophet ﷺ said: "May Allah gladden a man who hears a saying of mine, so he understands it, remembers it, and conveys it. Perhaps he carries the Fiqh to one who is more learned than him. There are three with which the heart of a Muslim shall not be deceived. 1: Sincerity in deeds for Allah, 2: Giving advice to the Rulers of Muslims, 3: And sticking firmly to the Jama'ah.

What we find in the Book of Allah, we follow it.'"
Narrated from Al-Miqdam bin Ma'dikarib (RA) that Allah’s Apostle ﷺ said: "Know that! Soon a man will receive a Hadith from me, while he is reclining on his couch, and would say: 'Between us and you is Allah's Book. So, whatever we find in it as lawful, we will considerate lawful, and whatever we find in it as unlawful, we will consider it unlawful.' Indeed, that which Allah’s Apostle ﷺ made unlawful is like which Allah made unlawful."
