Sheikh, does the effect of the words of a Scholar depend on how much emaan the Scholar has? So for example, if a scholar is sinful, his words don’t have any effect? Like I read in a hadith of Ibn Umar (RA) where he said that the effect of words of a sinful scholar is like rain falling on a rock.

The fatwa of a scholar is not dependent on his righteousness and avoiding sin. It depends on the knowledge he has.
