Ishaaq ibn Ibraheem al-Handhalee (ar-Raawhawaih) said:
Ibn al-Mubaarak came to ar-Rayy and one of the worshippers stood up, it was thought he followed the way of the Khawaarij. He said to Ibn al-Mubaarak: ‘O Aboo ‘Abdur-Rahmaan! What do you say about someone who commits adultery, steals, and ddrinks alcohol? He said:

“I do not say he has left Eemaan. “ The worshipper said:

‘O Aboo ‘Abdur-Rahmaan, upon old ago you have become a Murjee? He replied:

“Do not call us Murj’ia. The Murjiah say, all of our good deeds are accepted and all of our sins are forgiven. If I knew that my deeds were accepted, I would have testified that I am going to Paradise. “

The he related from the Ibn Shawdhan, from the Muhammad ibn Juhaadah, from Salamah ibn Khaleel, from Hazeel ibn Sharkeel, who said: Umar ibn al-Khattaab, radiyallahu ‘anhu, said:

“If the Eemaan of Aboo Bakr was to be weighed, it would be greater than the Eemaan of all the people of the Earth.”
