Analogy – Recipe for Destruction

From Al Kafi H 103, Ch. 11, h 9

Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from Yunus from Dawad ibn Farqad
from one he narrated from ibn Shubruma (a judge in al-Kufa during the rule of al-Mansur)
who has said the following.
“I never heard anything like a statement I heard from Imam abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) and it is
almost as he said, ‘Pierced my heart.’” The Imam (a.s.) said, “My father narrated from my
great-great-great-great grandfather, the holy Prophet (s.a.) who said, ‘Those who act on the
basis of analogy will face their destruction and lead others to their destruction. Those who
give fatwas without the knowledge of the abrogating and the abrogated, the clear text and that
which requires interpretation, they will face destruction and lead others to their destruction.”
