A Mother Makes Jarh Of Her Own Son!
قال الإمام الشافعي رحمه الله تعالى
دخلت بغداد فنزلت على بشر المريسي فأنزلني في غرفة له، فقالت لي أمه: لم جئت إلى هذا؟
قلت: أسمع منه العلم.
فقالت: هذا زنديق.

Imām Ash-Shafe`ī (died 204H, rahimahullāh) said:
I entered Baghdad and went to Bishr al-Mirīsī , so he accommodated me in his room. Then his mother said to me: “Why have you come to him?” I replied: “To hear from him knowledge.” So she said [about her own son, Bishr]: “He is an innovating heretic.”
Reported by Al-Khatīb (rahimahullāh) in Tārīkh Baghdād, 7/59.
— Imaam adh-Dhahabee said: “Bishr Ibn Ghiyāth al-Mirīsī: A misguided innovator. It is not permitted to narrate from him, and he is given no respect. He learned under Abu Yusuf and then left – and then became proficient in theological rhetoric (`ilmul-kalaam). He then became infamous for saying that the Qur’aan was created, and debating that point. He did not reach the era Jahm Ibn Safwaan [who came before him], but he took his sayings, and used them as proofs and called to them.” See Mizaan al-I`tidaal Fi Naqdir-Rijaal (2/35). A group of the Scholars declared him to be an unbeliever.
