Fear The Fitnah of The Women

The Noble Scholar Shaykh Nāsirud-Dīn Al-Albānī رحمه الله stated:

“By Allāh, right now I have reached the age of seventy four and I (still) fear for myself the Fitnah of the women. So how much more so for other than us from the youth.”

[Silsilah Al-Hudā wan-Nūr Recording #212]

{الخوف من فتنة النساء }

‏قال العلامة الإمام المحدث الشيخ ناصر الدين الألباني- رحمه الله

‏والله إني بلغت الآن الرابعة والسبعين من العمر ، أخشى على نفسي من فتنة النساء ، فما بال غيرنا من الشباب

[( سلسلة الهدى والنور : الشريط (٢١٢ ].

Criticism Without Proof

The Noble Shaykh Rabī Al-Madkhalī حفظه الله stated:

“The Scholar could make a mistake in the criticizing or praising (of a person). His brother is to correct his mistake in this. The Scholar might criticize without a valid criticism so the critiquing Scholars reject his criticism being just to the one who was criticized. There has come for you (many) examples (for this point).”

[Al-Majmū V.9 Pg.150]

قال العلامة الشيخ ربيع المدخلي -حفظه الله

العالِم قد يُخطِئ في الجرح أو في التعديل فيصحِّح أخوه خَطَأه في هذا أو هذا، وقد يجرح العالم بغيرِ جارح فيَرُدّ العلماء النُّقّاد جَرْحَه إنصافًا لمن وقع عليه هذا الجرح، وقد مرّت بك الأمثلة

Leaving Off The Harām For Allāh’s Sake

The Noble Scholar Sh. Sulaymān Ar-Ruhaylī حفظه الله said:

“When a Muslim stays away from the Harām intentionally (seeking the pleasure of Allāh), this is a righteous action. A good deed is written for him and a bad deed is wiped away.”

[Sharh Sahīh At-Targhīb wa At-Tarhīb #28]

The Student of Knowledge and The Scholars

The Noble Scholar Sulaymān Ar-Ruhaylī حفظه الله stated:

“No matter what level the student of knowledge has reached (in his studies), he is in need of the ‘Ulamā. He is in need to return back to the people of knowledge, those who are alive from amongst them as well as those who have passed away (by returning back to their works).”

[Sharh Sahīh At-Targhīb wa At-Tarhīb #28]

Note: Some individuals, once they have attained studying for a certain amount of time or attained a degree they disconnect themselves from the Scholars and hold themselves to be on the level of the Scholars. And worse than that are the ones who haven’t studied or barely studied and hold themselves to be the Scholars of the people, being obstacles in the way of true knowledge. The true Scholars are the inheritors of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and they are a means of guidance to the truth. The fake Scholars are the ones who feign knowledge and call the people to follow an agenda!

The Reason Why We Seek Knowledge

The Noble Shaykh Dr. Ahmad Bāzmūl حفظه الله stated:

“Knowledge is not sought for itself. Knowledge is not sought for itself. Knowledge is not sought in order for it to be said (about a person that) he’s a Scholar. Knowledge is not sought in order for it to be said (about a person that) he has a lot of information. Indeed knowledge is only sought as a means to get closer to Allāh. And knowledge is: Allāh said, His Messenger said, the Sahābah said.”

[Sharh Usūl At-Tafsīr of Ibn ‘Uthaymīn #2]
