Four People we shouldn’t take knowledge from

Four People we shouldn't take knowledge from

Imam Malik - Allah have mercy on him - said: Knowledge is not to be taken from four types of people: 
a foolish person who openly acts foolish, even if he reports the most narrations; 
an adherent of bid’ah who calls to his desires; 
a person who lies, even if I don’t accuse him of lying in hadith; and 
a righteous pious worshipper who does not accurately retain what he narrates.
Al-Dhahabi , Siyar A’lam Al-Nubala in his biography of Imam Malik.
