‘Amr bin Yazeed was a friend of Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) who lived in Egypt. He narrates the following:

I once said to Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah), “O Abu ‘Abdillah! People travel to you from different lands. They wear out their animals and spend their money in coming to you so that they can ask you their masaa’il and benefit from the knowledge of Deen which Allah Ta‘ala has blessed you with. Thereafter, when they ask you their question, you often tell them, ‘I do not know the answer.’”

Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) gave the following reply, “O servant of Allah! Sometimes a Syrian comes to me from his land of Syria, or an Iraqi comes to me from his land of Iraq, or an Egyptian comes to me from his land of Egypt, asking me various masaa’il. If I am not certain of something then I should not inform the people, as in the case where I give them an answer, but thereafter realize that the answer which I gave them was incorrect, then how will I find them and inform them that I had given them the incorrect answer?”

(Tazyeen-ul-Mamaalik pg. 34)
