The Fear of Giving Fatwa

Imam Sufyan ibn ‘Uyaynah {May Allah have mercy upon him} said: 

“The most knowledgeable with regards to Fatwa are the most silent of them; and the most ignorant with respect to Fatwa are the most outspoken of them.”

He also said: “The most daring of the people to issue verdicts are the least of them in knowledge.”
