Muhammad Nasir-Deen Al-Albaani (d.1420A.H) – rahimullaah -said:

The scholars say:

‘From the blessings of knowledge is referencing every statement to the one who said it.’

Forgery and falsification is kept away through referencing works.

The Prophet – sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam – indicated to this in his saying:

‘The one who makes a statement with that which he was not given is like the one who wears a garment of falsehood.’
