Advice For The New Student Of Knowledge

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ ۖ وَيُعَلِّمُكُمُ اللَّهُ ۗ

..So be afraid of Allah; and Allah teaches you..2:282


All praise is for Allaah, Lord of all the Worlds, who ordered us to follow His Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and to call to His Way, and may Allaah send praises and blessings of peace upon our Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), and upon his family, his Companions, and those who truly follow them until the Day of Judgment.


Advice For The New Student Of Knowledge

Question :

What Do You Advice And Counsel The New Student Of Knowledge With And What Are The Salafi Books That You Direct Him Towards And Likewise Cassettes ?

Answer by Shaykh Ahmad bin Yahyaa an-Najmee [rahimahullaah] :

My advice and counsel to all the Students of knowledge is that they all fear Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic.

That they follow the way of Messenger of Allaah [sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam] and his Companions and this is the Salafi way and the Salafi methodology.

I advise them to sit with the Salafi Scholars. I advise them to read the books upon (the subject of) Tawheed, books of ‘Aqeedah, books of Hadeeth, books of Fiqh, this is how it should be.

It is obligatory upon the Students of knowledge that they fear Allaah the Mighty and Majestic and that they warn against these partisan biased calls, those that wish to split their ranks, divide their unity and cause dissention amongst them.

The Prophet [sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam] warned us about callers that would call to the Fire and refuge is with Allaah.

There is no doubt that partisanship(Hizzbiyyah) has within it vile mistakes and it is obligatory upon the Student of knowledge to warn against it.

They (the Students of knowledge) should attend the circles of the Salafi Scholars and read the books authored by the Salafiyoon.

They (should) warn against the books of the people of party spirited groups, for indeed, within them there is honey (sweetness) and poison as the saying goes, and with Allaah is success.
