We are the great unjust. The masses of us have absolutely no interest in verifying the information we receive: everything is taken on trust, making complete mockery of our claim to have the best system for verification in the world. Look at us. We marvel at the science of isnad. We celebrate the great muhadith of the past, but just look at us. We don’t even bother to pause for thought, to ask questions, to probe and interrogate. We don’t dig beneath the surface, try to establish facts. Instead we are partisan and selective, choosing to believe whatever takes our fancy. At best we could say, “I don’t know,” but instead we claim to know absolutely, passing on the spurious without a second’s pause. But we only make mockery of ourselves.
