Once he was asked: “What can we learn from the Orientalists?”
Shaykh Mustafa Azami (Allah have mercy on him) said:
“Learn nothing from the Orientalists.
Rather, the Orientalists should learn from you.
The people who call your Prophet ﷺ a liar, the people who consider the Book you believe in to be fabricated (naʿūdhu bilLāh!), what can you learn of the religion from them?”
