Ibn Taymiyyah:

For indeed the dispraising of the best of generations, those of whom accompanied the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam) is a dispraise of the Messenger (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam).

Majmoo` al-Fataawaa, vol. 4, page 429

Doosh bint Falah ad-Dawsaree narrates:

‘One of the people who used to regularly visit the Shaykh (Ibn Baz) mentioned that once the Shaykh was extending his greetings to the people who had gathered when a man who smelt of cigarette smoke came and shook his hand. So, one over-enthusiastic person hastened to tell the Shaykh (about this) as if he wished for the man to be rebuked and scolded. However, the Shaykh, with his welcoming heart and good opinion of the people said, paraphrasing: “Do not be hasty in passing judgement! It is possible that he was a passenger with someone who smokes and as a result some of the smell went onto him.’”
