Conditions for Establishing the Proof
by The Albaani Blog
Questioner: Some people or some of the callers say that establishing the proof is done with two conditions: one is to do with the person who has the proof and the second is presenting the proof; ‘the person who has the proof,’ i.e., that he should be accepted by the people, ‘presenting the proof,’ that the proof be clear and unmistakable, what does this mean?
Al-Albaani: The first statement is false because the Prophets and Messengers were not accepted by their people. As for the second condition then it without doubt [is correct], it must be clear.
