Part 16: Rights of The Upright Scholars- [Etiquettes of The Student Whilst In The Sitting of a Scholar]: By Shaikh Muhammad Baazmool]

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

Shaikh Muhammad Baazmool [may Allaah preserve him] said: In the sitting of a scholar, one should be aware of the following:

[1] One should be under the authority of the scholar, whilst sitting in the gathering. [2] One should not sit very far from the scholar nor very close when in the sitting in the gathering. [Ref 1]  [3] One should make room for other students who want to sit. [4] One should not desire to speak, neither should he argue nor debate. [5] One should not start speaking until the scholar begins [and gives him permission]. [6] One should not impose what is to be spoken about in the sitting without the permission of the Shaikh. [7] One should not speak after the Shaikh has spoken, unless given permission by the Shaikh. [8] One should not backbite anyone in the presence of the Shaikh.[ref 2]  [9] One should not make the Shaikh perceive that he is tired [bore] or displeased. [10] One should not sit whilst not [desiring] an increase [in knowledge] or whilst having little concern for the sitting. [11] One should exercise patience when he experiences something defective from the Shaikh’s character or experiences harshness from him, because the Shaikh is [nothing else] but a human being [i.e. he is not perfect].
