Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan (may Allah preserve him) stated:
No one attacks the honor of the scholars established upon the truth except for one of three persons:
1. A hypocrite whose hypocrisy is known.
2. A criminal who hates the scholars because they prevent him from (performing) criminal activities.
3. A misguided Hizbee who hates the scholars because they (the scholars) do not agree with him being upon his Hizbiyyah (i.e. partisanship) or deviated theories.
