It's Not From Fairness to Read Books of Those in Opposition to the Truth

Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Haadi (may Allaah preserve him) stated: "Those who say that it's from fairness to read books of those in opposition (to the truth) along with the Scholars refutations, this is compound ignorance. The books of refutation of the Scholars are Islaah (rectification). As for the books of those in opposition then they are Hadam (destruction). How can a person combine between building a foundation and then destroy it at the same time? Does a person when building a building has a builder and then a demolition man to tear down what's being built?! This is from stupidity. It's similar to the stupidity of those who argue over what comes first, the chicken or the egg?!" (A summary of what the Shaykh said in his Majlis after Salaatul-Eeshaa in his Masjid)
