Sometimes a Graduate is the Most Ignorant of People

October 14, 2010 2 comments

A very good reminder for us in the West not to be impressed with the degrees of the people in the arena of da’wah.

Be weary of the speakers who are not known to the senior scholars of Ahlus Sunnah or they are not known to be from those who would sit with the people of knowledge or keep in contact with them.

What’s even worse are those speakers, may Allah guide them, who try to take the youth away from the senior scholars and establish themselves as the scholars of the land like what has happened with many here in the west. Allahul musta’aan.

Sometimes a Graduate is the Most Ignorant of People

By Ash-Shaykh Salih Al-Fawzan (may Allah preserve him)

Question: If a person wants to teach people Islam, is having a degree from a university enough or must he have a tazkiyah from a scholar as well?

Answer: He must have knowledge. Everyone who graduates with a degree doesn’t become a person of knowledge. What’s required is to have knowledge and understanding of Allah’s religion. Degrees don’t prove that a person has knowledge. Sometimes the most ignorant of people possess degrees. And at other times there are people without degrees, who are the most knowledgeable of people.

I understood that guiding people by action is more inspiring..

Imam Ibn ul Jawzee

From “Sayd Al-Khaatir” (138)

I have met many mashaaykh and the affair of one was different from that of the other, and their knowledge capacity were of varying levels. And the one whom I benefited from his company the most was the one who used to apply what he knew, even though there were those who were more knowledgeable than him.

I met a group from the people of hadeeth who memorized and knew a lot, however they would permit backbiting under the guise of jarh wa ta’deel (ed.: “accreditation and disreputation”, science of criticism of narrators), they would take monetary payment in return for narrating hadeeth, and they would be hasty in giving answers, even if they are wrong, lest their status diminishes.

I met Abdulwahaab Al-Anmaatee, he used to be upon the methodology of the salaf. One would never hear backbiting in his gatherings nor would he take payment for teaching hadeeth. Whenever I read a hadeeth that contained in it a heart-softener, he used to cry continuously. I was very young at that time, (but) his crying affected my heart. He had the calm of those whose description we hear about from the narrations.

I met Abu Mansur Al-Jawaaliqee, he was very quiet, very careful about what he said, precise, and scholarly. Sometimes he would be asked a question, which may seem easy; one that our young ones would rush to answer, however he would withhold from answering until he was certain. He used to fast a lot and remain quiet often.

Thus, I benefited from these two more than I benefited from the others, and I understood from this that: guiding people by one’s action is more inspiring than doing so by words. So by Allah, one should implement what he knows for it is indeed the greatest foundation. And the miskeen, the true miskeen is the one who wasted his life learning what he does not practice, thus he looses the pleasures of the dunyah and the goodies of the akhirah. (In addition to) Coming forth bankrupt (on the day of judgment) with strong evidences against himself.”

The Creed of Ahlus-Sunnah on The Mahdi

By : Sheikh Abdulmuhsin Al-‘Abbaad

128 Pages , Perfect Bound

Inside: Nice, Attractive, Yellow Paper

Price: 10 $

An Amazing Knowledge-Based Suprise for your Ramadhan

Alhamdulillaah it is a pleasure to publish this very important book. For the first time in the English language we have a reliable book discussing this topic. Authored by a mountain of knowledge.

About the Author:

Sheikh Abdulmuhsin al-`Abbaad is one of those few scholars who many scholars refer to him as their teacher. He is the former president of the Islamic University Madeenah, and was the first person who held the first class when the University was opened! and has since been teaching there for the past 50 years.!!

He also still has regular lectures at the Prophetic Masjid -where he recently finished his explanation on the 6 major books of hadeeth-. May Allaah bless the sheikh and elongate his life [he is almost 80 years]!

About the Book:

The topic of the book is critical.

So many have expressed their beliefs and opinions on this topic: those who say it is an innovation in Islam, those who say it is `symbolism’, the conspiracy theorists and their theories, those who have out-rightly rejected it!

And as such, do not be shaken by the whims and doubts.

This book expounds –with some detail- the correct belief [with proofs], and also refutes & responds to the common allegations of those who have wrong belief in this issue.

Enlighten yourself with authentic knowledge.

The book is available, to order send your request to bookrdrs

The Muslim Woman Increases More In Worship Than The Man In Ramadan By Sheikh Sulaymaan ar-Ruhaylee,

Questioner inquires: What is the Muslim Woman’s agenda in Ramadan so that she can worship Allah by way of it and at the same time complete the services of the people of her household?

Sheikh Sulaymaan ar-Ruhaylee, may Allah preserve him, answers: We say that the Muslim Woman’s agenda is that of the (Muslim) Mans. However the Muslim Women increases in worship. That is because when the women strives in the service of her h…usband and the members of her household and she prepares food for them that which will sufice them, then she is in obedience to Allah, ‘azza wa jall, provided that she seeks the reward from Allah. Therefore, in this is a reward for her and also an increasement for her good deeds. And it is befitting for the Muslim Women when she is preparing the food that she busy’s her tongue with the rememberance of Allah. So while she is cooking she glorifies Allah, while she is cooking she is saying tahleel (Laa ilaaha illa Allah/ None has the right to be worshipped except Allah), while she is cooking she is remembering Allah and in that she will have a tremendous reward. (Like this) preparing food will never divert her from the obedience of her Lord, Glorified is He, during the day of Ramadan. So congratulations to the Muslim Women who services her husband and the members of her household and she seeks the reward from Allah, ‘azza wa jall, and by that she does not become heedless concerning the rememberance of Allah and she performs what she is capable of doing from the different acts of worship during the day of Ramadan. For indeed she has achieved a great success.
