Hadeeth of Alee (ra) Concerning Knowledge

Posted in Seeking Knowledge, The Salaf with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 16, 2008 by fearthedunya

And from this understanding, is what Abu Nu’aim and others have reported from Kumail Ibn Ziyaad 31 on the authority of ‘Alee, radyAllaahu ‘anhu, that he said:

“The people are of three types: the learned scholar, the student of knowledge who is upon the path towards salvation and the uncivilized ignorant follower following every ideology, blowing in the direction of every wind. He is not guided by the light of knowledge nor is he established upon a firm pillar.”

Then he mentioned some words on the benefit of knowledge, up to the point where he said:

– Taken From Musa Millington

I was speaking to a friend today. And he was telling me that a few brothers from Trinidad went to Yemen for a year and they had one word to describe it: HARD. They told him that it wasn’t really the living conditions that turned them off but rather it was the fact that in Yemen they study 24/7 and was a bit too rigorous for them.
