Few blind followers claimed he was staunch muqallid of Imam Malik?
Ibn Hajar al Asqalani said
قال ابن العربي : وجاء عن مالك رواية أنه لا أثر لرجوعه ، وحديث النبي - صلى الله عليه وسلم - أحق أن يتبع
Ibn al Arabi said: In a narration from Maalik, his (zaani's) ruju (after confessing his sin in front of qadhi) has no effect (i.e. his ruju after confessing that he did zina has no effect, he will still be punished). But following the hadith of Prophet peace be upon him has a priority. (where Prophet peace be upon him said to the one who confessed his sin of zina “Woe to you! Go back and pray to Allaah for forgiveness and repent to Him.”)
[Fath al-Baari, 12/125]
Note: Following school of thought has nothing to do with staunch blind following.
“Make things easy and do not make things difficult. Give glad tidings and do not repel people..”
