⏩ How Does A Student Of Knowledge Take Advantage Of His Time – Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Hizaam

Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Hizaam was asked:

يقول السائل: طالب العلم كيف يستغل وقته ؟

The questioner says:

How does a student of knowledge take advantage of his time?

الإجـــــــــابة :-

يبتدئ طالب العلم بالإقبال على حفظ القرآن وحفظ السنة ولا يشق على نفسه ويأخذ له مع الحفظ شيئاً من الدروس كالدرسين والثلاثة في التوحيد و العقيدة والنحو والتجويد ويستمر على ذلك ويراجع ويحافظ على أوقاته ويكثر من المراجعة ويعتني بالإتقان في حفظه فليقسم أوقاته :

The answer:

The student of knowledge begins by having an acceptance to memorize the Qur’an and memorizing the Sunnah, while not making it hard upon himself. Along with his memorization, he can also take lessons, such as two lessons or three in Tawheed, Aqeedah, Arabic grammar, Tajweed, and he continues like this, reviewing and preserving his time. He constantly reviews and pays attention to perfecting what he has memorized, while properly dividing his time.

أوقات للحفظ أوقات للدروس والمراجعة

Times for memorizing and times for lessons and reviewing.

وإذا فتح الله عليه بعد ذلك بحفظ القرآن وحفظ أحاديث رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم عند ذلك يغلب جانب الدروس ويجعل وقتاً لمراجعة المحفوظات

If, after that, Allah bestows upon him (the blessing of) memorizing the Quran and memorizing narrations of the the messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم, he then makes more time for (attending) lessons and places a time for reviewing that which he had previously memorized.

وننصح طالب العلم أن يستفيد من إخوانه الذين تقدموه في طلب العلم ويستشيرهم فيما يقبل عليه فإن هذا السؤال جوابه طويل ويحتاج إلى كلامٍ كثير ولكن استفد ممن تقدمك في طلب العلم ويجعل الله عزوجل في ذلك الخير .

We advise that a student of knowledge benefit from his brothers that preceded him in seeking knowledge and seek their advice in that which they are proceeding upon (the knowledge they are acquiring). The answer to this question is a long one and is in need of a lot of speech, but benefit from those who have preceded you in seeking knowledge and Allah Aza Wa Jal will place good in that.

Quran and Sunnah upon the understanding of the salaf


Learning Arabic :Kitaab Al Asaasee


الموضوع: Al Kitaab al Asaasee

The construction of Masjid Haram and Masjid Al Aqsa

There is a hadith that says the period between the construction of the Masjid Al Haram and Masjid Al Aqsa was fourty years, how can this be?

Answer :

The Permanent Committee for Scholarly Research and Ifta has said in a answer :

Scholars have different views regarding who built Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa. It is said that it was Prophet Ya`qub (Jacob) ibn Is-haq (Isaac) ibn Ibrahim (Abraham). This view is close to the truth. It is also said that it was Sulayman (Solomon). The soundest opinion is that Sulayman renewed it but did not establish it. Because there were more than forty years between Sulayman and Ibrahim (Abraham) just as Al-Hafizh ibn Kathir (may Allah be merciful to him) mentioned.

Muslim related in his Sahih (authentic) Book of Hadith on the authority of Abu Dhar (may Allah be pleased with him) that he said: I said: O Messenger of Allah, which mosque was laid first on earth? He said: Al-Masjid Al-Haram. I said: Then what was next? He said: Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa I said: How long was between them? He said: Forty years. Wheresoever the time comes for Salah, perform it for it is a Masjid.

End of the Quote.

So the Masjid Al Haram was built by Ibrahim (Alaihissalam) and Masjid Al Aqsa was built by Yaqub (Alaihissalam) -who was grand son of Ibrahim- according to sound opinion and between the two was forty years.

How to seek knowledge if there isn’t any Scholars in your land.

⏩ *How to Seek Knowledge if There are No Scholars in Ones Land? – Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbad*
Question : In my land there are no Scholars nor circles of knowledge like in this land of yours. So I hope from you some advice about how to seek knowledge and is this through tapes or books? And how can I reconcile between the [different] sciences and their levels?
Answer : “It is upon a person to be eager to have in his land one who has knowledge, insight, and safety in Aqeedah in order to benefit from him. If he is not capable of that, then he should be eager [to obtain] the tapes of the Scholars in which there is much good, knowledge, and benefit in listening to their tapes and speech. Like: Shaikh Abdul Aziz Ibn Baz, Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Salih al-Uthaymeen, Shaikh Salih al-Fawzan, Shaikh Abdul Aziz ibn Abdullah Ala Shaikh, and other than them from the Mashaaikh who the people benefit from their tapes and knowledge. A person should not give preference to every tape he listens to. This is because some tapes have harm in them. If it is easy for him to [seek knowledge] with one who has knowledge in his land, then no doubt this is desired. If there is no reliable Scholar, then he should be eager to obtain tapes and beneficial books from the likes of these Scholars”.
