The Salaf - Pious Predecessors

Our Salaf: Abu Haazim–You will not become a scholar until…..

Abu Haazim (rahimahullaah) said:

”You will not become a scholar until there are three qualities in you: (a) You do not covet the (things) of the one who is above you; (b) you do not belittle one below you; (c ) you do not take the worldly things through your knowledge.”

[Shu”bul Eemaan of Imaam Al-Bayhaqqee (rahimahullaah)2/288]
