The Discussion digressed to the issue of Ittibaa` (following) and whether or
not it was an independent level that a person could reach
Shaykh Naasir was of the opinion that it was an independent station falling
between the station of taqleed and ijtihaad because its [state] differs from the
[state] of the other two. Dr. Bootee was of the opinion that it falls within
taqleed. A number of those present agreed with Shaykh Naasir because he quoted a
number of the People of Knowledge in their affirming the station of ittibaa`.
The discussion on this went on for a long time ending with both sticking to
their opinion. However there was a weakening in al-Bootees stance for he
stated that this was an issue over which there was a difference of opinion.
The Discussion ended with a Vile word from al-Bootee

so Shaykh Naasir asked permission to leave. He stood and moved towards the door.
Al-Bootee realising that he had been defeated [in a number of his stances] then
called out, "By Allaah! Shaykh Naasir you state what is not in your
Shaykh Naasir rejected this vile accusation, as did those who were present
and then the discussion was over.
