Some Matters May Be Unknown to the Seniors (2)

Al-Hafidh ibn Hajar Al-Asqalani رحمه الله said:

Certain facts may be unkown to the seniors while those lesser than them are aware of [these matters]. In this is a refutation of the blind-follower in that when a proof that opposes him is used as evidence against him, he responds: If this was correct, then so-and-so would have known it.

[Fathul-Bari, 16/112, Dar Tayyibah]
