Yahya bin Sa’ed was from the great scholars and judges of early Islam. Here’s what he had to say after his first day on the job:
“When I accepted the position of the Qadi of Kufa, I thought there was no knowledge on the face of the earth that I had not learned. When I sat to listen to my first case, two men came in and started arguing about something I’d never heard before!”
al-Dhakira of al-Qarafi vol. 10 pg. 13
The case of education vs. experience. So true.
