The caliph, ‘Umar ibn ‘Abdul-‘Aziz (rahimahullaah) said,

{{ خُذُوا مِنَ الرَّأْيِ مَا يُصَدِّقُ مَنْ كَانَ قَبْلَكُمْ، وَلَا تَأْخُذُوا مَا هُوَ خِلَافٌ لَهُمْ، فَإِنَّهُمْ خَيْرٌ مِنْكُمْ وَأَعْلَمُ }}

“Take from opinion that which conforms to the practice (saying/belief) of those who came before you, and do not take from what is contrary to them, for verily, they were better than you and more knowledgeable.”

[Source: Recorded by Abu Na’eem in his “Hilyatul-Awliyaa”, (5/270,315) and also mentioned by Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali (rahimahullaah) in “Fadhl ‘ilm as-Salaf ‘ala al-Khalaf”]
