Shaykh Al Uthaymeen رحمه الله mentions in his explanation of the hadeeth of Al Irbaad ibn Saariyyah رضي الله عنه:
(I advise you all with the fear of Allah..) This advice is taken from the statement of Allah ta’alaa:
ِAnd verily, We have recommended to the people of the Scripture before you, and to you (O Muslims) that you (all) fear Allah, and keep your duty to Him,[An Nisa:131]
So taqwa is the head of all affairs

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-Uthaymeen rahimahullaah in his Majmoo` Fataawaa vol. 20 pge. 37-38 was asked the following question:
Q: What do you say regarding fasting a day after `Aashooraa, as that which is legislated is fasting a day before it. (So), is fasting a day after `Aashooraa established by way of an authentic narration from the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu `alaihi wa sallam?

It amazes one that those who do not know anything of knowledge are quick to lie upon the Shaykh, slander him, and speak with that which they know to be untrue or from unreliable sources. So I ask you, O you who have hatred for our Mashaayikh, what have they gone against the religion in?
What has Shaykh Rabee’ brought that was never done or spoken about by the Salaf?
What has Shaykh al Fawzaan done that has no basis in the religion?
What is your problem with these Mashaayikh while not even one of you, those that speak against them, are known for knowledge or trustworthiness?
You slander those who love them, respect them, and exalt their status with respect and honor with names such as ‘Madkhalis’ and ‘Jaamis’. Why?
I ask you, by Allah, what proof do you have to warn against the Ulema?
