Benefit: The Various Types of Students of Knowledge

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Hādī al-Madkhalī (حفظه الله) said:

Therefore, the student of knowledge is of three [types]: the beginner, the intermediate and the advanced. As for the beginner, then he is the one who just begun seeking [knowledge] and [so,] he does not know the fundamentals. [As for] the intermediary [student], then he is the one who knows the fundamentals but he is deficient in knowing how to [use the evidences to] infer/deduce [i.e. to come to a verdict that something is ḥalāl or ḥarām or other than that]. [As for] the advanced [student], then he is the one who knows the fundamentals and he knows [fully] how to [use the evidences to] infer/deduce [i.e. to come to a verdict that something is ḥalāl or ḥarām or other than that].
