Brief Acquaintance With An Aspect of Mental Development – By Allaamah Abdur Rahmaan Bin Yahyah Al-Mu’allimee

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

Quote: It is well known that a person is born knowing nothing, but rather he is accompanied with the physical ability to feel pain and the like. I mean for example that if he is pinched, he feels the pain due to that pinch. This has accompanied him since the time the soul was placed in him (a); but this is not considered knowledge. And with him is the innate disposition by way of which he latches on the mother’s breast and suckles. Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic] said:

وَاللَّهُ أَخْرَجَكُم مِّن بُطُونِ أُمَّهَاتِكُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ شَيْئًا وَجَعَلَ لَكُمُ السَّمْعَ وَالْأَبْصَارَ وَالْأَفْئِدَةَ ۙ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ

And Allah has brought you out from the wombs of your mothers while you know nothing. And He gave you hearing, sight, and hearts that you might give thanks (to Allah). [Surah An-Nahl. Verse 78]

Mental Development

May Allaah reward my beloved Salafi brother, close friend and companion – [Ustaadh Abu Tasneem- Mushaf Al-Banghalee (may Allaah preserve him) whose companionship is always that of reminder, advice and an increase in knowledge]- who brought my attention to this statement of Al-Allaamah Al-Mu’allimee [may Allaah have mercy upon him].
