Benefit: Everyone Today Is Considered a Scholar?!
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
A brief discussion on the humility of the scholars, their fleeing from praise and grand titles. This example is then contrasted with those in the West who embrace titles, demand praise and seek recognition for everything they do, small or large. Importantly, Ustādh Abū Idrīs
mentions the importance of clarity, those men who stand up in times of fitnah and are courageous, defending the truth, defending the scholars, not simply those who seek fame off the letters that follow their names.
The benefit is excerpted from the lecture entitled: Benefits from the Introduction to al-Ibānah al-Ṣughrá
by Ustādh Abū Ḥakīm
, from the 2018 Summer Seminar: The Methodology of the Salaf in Times of Fitnah
