I once read a Hadith in which Prophet Muhammad() warns us to be wary of Huffaz as many of the mischief makers are Huffaz.

Can anyone find the reference of any such Hadith?

  • It sounds very strange. Perhaps you read something about the Khawarij? – Harun Jun 21 '19 at 7:53
  • @Harun I know that Khawarij have similar reports about them. But this is not one of them. – Crimson Jun 21 '19 at 9:30
  • How about people who recite the qur'an but don't follow it or scholars who make lawful and unlawful according their nafs I'm not sure that the hadith you look for actually say they are hufadh.. – Medi1Saif Jun 24 '19 at 13:51
  • @Medi1Saif Actually, I found the Hadith. It has several versions. Most versions are translated as 'reciters' and one is translated as 'memorizers' which is quoted in this fatwa by IslamQA. But, it doesn't say to beware of them explicitly. Maybe you could look into it. – Crimson Jun 24 '19 at 15:07
