[64] Excerpts From Shaikh Rabee’s Book Titled ‘Marhaban Yaa Taalibal Ilm’ – [Direct Your Attention Towards The Senior Scholars]

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

The students of knowledge must think carefully and should direct their attention towards the senior scholars – the possessors of vast knowledge, those whose lives have been spent in seeking knowledge and its dessimination, and are possessors of experience [in many affairs]. They will give you – in one sitting – that which you cannot attain in a year.

They will give you the [required and precise] summary of knowledge, which if you and your young Shaikh were to look for, you will not reach it. This [i.e. abandoning the scholars and their knowledge and clinging to the young ones] is also an obstacle faced by the students of knowledge, so one should beware of it.

Knowledge of The Young Ones

[63] Excerpts From Shaikh Rabee’s Book Titled ‘Marhaban Yaa Taalibal Ilm’- [Regarding The One Who Knows Little, Pretends to Be a Scholar And Distances The People From The Upright Scholars, And Followed By a More Detailed Clarification From Salafipublication Regarding The Term ‘Al-Asaaghir’]

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

One of the obstacles that prevents people from [acquiring] knowledge is [when they] turn to the knowledge of the Asaaghir [the small ones] – and Allaah’s refuge is sought. And from the [minor] signs of the hour [i.e. the day of judgement] is that knowledge will be acquired from the young in age, who learn very little and thus considers himself an Aalim!

This person is young and a Miskeen [i.e. one lacking strength in the field of knowledge], but considers himself as one who has reached the highest level; so the ignoramuses come to him, gather around him and cut off from the scholars – and Allaah’s refuge is sought. This is one of the [minor] signs and portents of the hour, when the people abandon the senior scholars and embark upon acquiring knowledge from the ignorant young ones – those who pretend to be scholars. This is a calamity. Ibn Mas’ood [radiyallaahu-anhu] said: “The people will not cease to be upon good as long as they acquire knowledge from their elder, trustworthy ones and scholars.”

Contemplate on this statement, “And if they acquire knowledge from their young ones, they will be destroyed.”

This is one of the obstacles and barriers to acquiring knowledge. It may be that some people desire knowledge, but he [i.e. an individual] becomes deceived by that young person and considers him to be the most knowledgeable of people. And had he gone to other than that young person, he would find that it is obligated on that young person to seek knowledge together with him, and sit down in the presence of the scholars.

Contemplation and Understanding of The Qurān – Shaykh b. Bāz

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh b. Bāz (rahimahullāh) said,

In general, memorisation is from knowledge and fahm is greater and the head and foundation of knowledge is the Qurān.

Therefore whoever desires knowledge then let him contemplate on the Qurān and give importance to the Qurān, in terms of memorisation, contemplation, revision and action upon it.

And the knowledge of the companions, most of it was from the Qurān, some of them did not memorise except a few ahādīth; however Allāh benefited them by their knowledge and their concern with the Book of Allāh (Azza wa Jal).
