Narrated Jundub:

The Prophet ﷺ said: If anyone interprets the Book of Allah in the light of his opinion even if he is right, he has erred.
حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ يَحْيَى، حَدَّثَنَا يَعْقُوبُ بْنُ إِسْحَاقَ الْمُقْرِئُ الْحَضْرَمِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا سُهَيْلُ بْنُ مِهْرَانَ، - أَخُو حَزْمٍ الْقُطَعِيِّ - حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو عِمْرَانَ، عَنْ جُنْدُبٍ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏
"‏ مَنْ قَالَ فِي كِتَابِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ بِرَأْيِهِ فَأَصَابَ فَقَدْ أَخْطَأَ ‏"‏ ‏.‏
