Is it must that a scholar mentions proofs for his answers ?

Question :

What is the proof that it is said that it is not upon the aalim to provide proof when he is asked a question unless he is seeking clarification on a matter.

Answer :

He said that if the kalaam of the aalim is based and built upon evidences sometimes he may mention those evidences in meaning and he may not mention it directly the aayah or hadeeth rather he mentions it in meaning so then it’s a must that whats taken from his statement must be supported by evidences as for if it is known that this individual that particular aalim only sticks to a particular madhab then his statement is not to be taken except by evidences for indeed he is only given fatwa based on his madhab and his taqleed.
