Imam Ahmad On Fiqhi Issues And Giving The Proper Hadeeth It's Proper Share Of Priority
-----------------------------

Imam Ahmad was once asked about a man who had memorized the Qur`an but did not do raf `al yadain and another man who did raf `al yadain but did not memorize the Qur`an, so who was more befitting to lead the people in prayers? Imam Ahmad said : “ The one who has memorized the Qur`an (is more befitting as it was the hadeeth of the prophet that the Imam should be the one who knew and understood Qur`an the most)and he should do raf `al yadain because it is the sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam).

[Ref: Masail Imam Ahmad. For details see Shaykh Irshad ul-Haq Athari’s Maqalat Tarbiyat 212/177]
The Prophet ﷺ said:

“Make things easy and do not make things difficult. Give glad tidings and do not repel people..”
