Part 14: Rights of The Upright Scholars: [Etiquettes of the Student Whilst Accompanying His Shaikh] – By Shaikh Muhammad Baazmool

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Shaikh Muhammad Baazmool [may Allaah preserve him] said:

[1] The student should not raise his voice in the presence of his Shaikh. [2] The student should hasten to carry out the request of his Shaikh. [3] The student should not put himself forward before his Shaikh, but should be at his service. [4] The student should address his Shaikh honourably. [[5] The student should not insist [that his Shaikh does something for him] when the Shaikh is either tired or pre-occupied. [6] The student should not persist in asking something which he knows the scholar does not want to talk about.

And in general, the student should be eager -whilst accompanying the scholar- to fulfil those rights- in particular- which Allaah has given the Shaikh, and he should remind himself of Allaah’s [The Blessed and Exalted] statement:

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓاْ إِذَا قِيلَ لَكُمۡ تَفَسَّحُواْ فِى ٱلۡمَجَـٰلِسِ فَٱفۡسَحُواْ يَفۡسَحِ ٱللَّهُ لَكُمۡ‌ۖ وَإِذَا قِيلَ ٱنشُزُواْ فَٱنشُزُواْ يَرۡفَعِ ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ مِنكُمۡ وَٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡعِلۡمَ دَرَجَـٰتٍ۬‌ۚ وَٱللَّهُ بِمَا تَعۡمَلُونَ خَبِيرٌ۬

O you who believe! When you are told to make room in the assemblies, [spread out and] make room. Allaah will give you [ample] room [from His Mercy]. And when you are told to rise up [for prayers, Jihad (holy fighting in Allah’s Cause), or for any other good deed (ref 1)], rise up. Allah will exalt in degree those of you who believe, and those who have been granted knowledge. And Allah is Well-Acquainted with what you do. [Surah Al-Mujaadilah’ Aayah 11]
