Da'wah - Calling To Islam Qur'aan Scholars of Islam Seeking Knowledge The Salaf - Pious Predecessors

Our Salaf: Eagerness for acquiring understanding of the similitudes in the Qur’aan

Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَتِلۡكَ ٱلۡأَمۡثَـٰلُ نَضۡرِبُهَا لِلنَّاسِ‌ۖ وَمَا يَعۡقِلُهَآ إِلَّا ٱلۡعَـٰلِمُونَ

”And these similitudes We put forward for mankind, but none will understand them except those who have knowledge (of Allah and His Signs, etc.)” [29:43]

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said: ”When some of the Salaf used to come across a similitude (in the Qur’aan) and could not understand it, they would weep and say: ”I am not from those who have knowledge.”
