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)

Shaikh Al-Albaani Advice about Qur’aan

Bismillaah…

Assalaamu alaikum,

I read this today and would like to share it with you all.  It is some advice given by the great Scholar Shaykh Al-Albani (Raheemahullaah) about the Qur’aan.

The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said:

 

“The Best of you are those who learn the Quran and teach it”

 

The Scholar Al-Albaani (may Allah have mercy upon him) said  in his notes under this hadeeth in Silsilah as-Saheehah 1173:

 

And in this Hadeeth is: a direction into learning The Qur’aan, and that the best knowledge that a person can learn is learning the Qur’aan.

 

So how wishful it is that the students of knowledge  would realize that.  Because in it, is great benefit.

 

And fom the calamities that have hit our era is that you find many of the callers or the beginners amongst the students of knowledge going into giving fatwa’s (Islamic verdicts) and answering questions of people; while he hasn’t even made good his recitation of Suratul Faatiha from its proper recitation…’

Up to where he said..

‘..so advice to myself and then to them is that; the best of what a student of knowledge begins on is memorising The Quran’
