ﻧَﺎ ﻧَﺎ ﻣُﺤَﻤَّﺪُ ﺑْﻦُ ﻣَﺨْﻠَﺪٍ ، ﻧَﺎ ﻋَﺒْﺪُ ﺍﻟﻠَّﻪِ ﺑْﻦُ ﺃَﺣْﻤَﺪَ ﺑْﻦِ ﺣَﻨْﺒَﻞٍ , ﺣَﺪَّﺛَﻨِﻲ ﺃَﺑِﻲ , ﻧَﺎ ﺳُﻔْﻴَﺎﻥُ ﺑْﻦُ ﻋُﻴَﻴْﻨَﺔَ , ﻧَﺎ ﺇِﺩْﺭِﻳﺲُ ﺍﻷَﻭْﺩِﻱُّ <, ﻋَﻦْ ﺳَﻌِﻴﺪِ ﺑْﻦِ ﺃَﺑِﻲ ﺑُﺮْﺩَﺓَ ، ﻭَﺃَﺧْﺮَﺝَ ﺍﻟْﻜِﺘَﺎﺏَ , ﻓَﻘَﺎﻝَ : ﻫَﺬَﺍ ﻛِﺘَﺎﺏُ ﻋُﻤَﺮَ , ﺛُﻢَّ ﻗُﺮِﺉَ ﻋَﻠَﻰ ﺳُﻔْﻴَﺎﻥَ " ﻣِﻦْ ﻫَﺎﻫُﻨَﺎ ﺇِﻟَﻰ ﺃَﺑِﻲ ﻣُﻮﺳَﻰ ﺍﻷَﺷْﻌَﺮِﻱِّ , ﻻ ﻳَﻤْﻨَﻌْﻚَ ﻗَﻀَﺎﺀٌ ﻗَﻀَﻴْﺘَﻪُ ﺑِﺎﻷَﻣْﺲِ ﺭَﺍﺟَﻌْﺖَ ﻓِﻴﻪِ ﻧَﻔْﺴَﻚَ ﻭَﻫُﺪِﻳﺖَ ﻓِﻴﻪِ ﻟِﺮُﺷْﺪِﻙَ ﺃَﻥْ ﺗُﺮَﺍﺟِﻊَ ﺍﻟْﺤَﻖَّ ، ﻓَﺈِﻥَّ ﺍﻟْﺤَﻖَّ ﻗَﺪِﻳﻢٌ ، ﻭَﺇِﻥَّ ﺍﻟْﺤَﻖَّ ﻻ ﻳُﺒْﻄِﻠُﻪُ ﺷَﻲْﺀٌ ﻭَﻣُﺮَﺍﺟَﻌَﺔَ ﺍﻟْﺤَﻖِّ ﺧَﻴْﺮٌ ﻣِﻦَ ﺍﻟﺘَّﻤَﺎﺩِﻱ ﻓِﻲ ﺍﻟْﺒَﺎﻃِﻞ
Imam Saeed bin Abi Barda bin Abi Musa Ashari (may Allah have mercy on him) took out a letter written for his grandfather Abu Musa Ashari by Umar (may Allah be pleased with him). It was written in letter that if you had passed a judgement yesterday and if you rechecked it and found that your judgement wasn’t correct then if you are guided towards the correct ruling then do not stop yourself in accepting the truth because truth is apparent and it cannot be overruled. Nothing can change the truth and it is better to accept the truth rather than indulging oneself in obstinacy and disputes in following falsehood.
