Serving as an introduction to the 2010 Summer Courses, our brother, Abū al-ʿAbbās, delivered a lecture regarding traits of the successful student of knowledge. The subject of knowledge and those who seek it is a broad topic. However, our brother focuses on six important characteristics that are the fundamentals of success in seeking knowledge. These points are reminders for present students of knowledge and lessons for those who are just getting started. What are these characteristics? From where do they originate? And what benefit will they bring for you, O Muslim? Listen and share what you have gained with your friends and family in order that you all become from the successful.
