Some Words From Shaikh Muqbil on Seeking Knowledge

Bismillaah…

sh-muqbil

” Oh my children, I swear by Allah if knowledge could be poured into a glass, I would pour it for you, but it is not obtained except by hard work, exhaustion and scraping of knees.”

[Shaikh Muqbil Rahimahullaah]

Assalaamu alaikum,

Everytime I read this I’m captured by its beauty and simplicity.  It was said by the great scholar  Shaikh Muqbil from Yemen (Rahimahullaah).  It’s enough of a reminder to all seekers of knowledge to remain steadfast upon their path and to be patient and persevere.  It also displays the great love he had for his children and the gentle way in which he spoke to them.  (I assume that he is speaking to his own children but he may well be addressing his students as he was a senior shaykh and Allaah knows best)
