Our Ummah is in desperate need of knowledge and students of knowledge; ones that guard the faith with the armor of Qur’an and Sunnah. Without knowledge, falsehood becomes widespread and innovation rampant. The true scholars are the ones who help navigate the Ummah, steering our issues back to the teachings of Allah and His Prophet. Some of us, deluded by worldly perceptions, equate money to success but the fact states that those whom Allah wishes good for are guided to understanding His religion…and that’s the greatest success. Allah says, “Allah will raise in rank those of you who believe and those who have been given knowledge“ [58:11].
The Prophet (salah allahu ‘alayhi wa asalam) said:
“Allaah has ninety-nine names, one hundred less one; whoever memorizes them will enter Paradise.” [Reported by Al-Bukhaari, 2736, and Muslim, 2677]
Shaikh Bin Baz, rahimahu Allah, said:
“From Eemaan (faith) in Allaah is to have eemaan in those of His Asmaa’ul-Husnaa (Beautiful names) and Sifaatul-Ulyaa (Lofty Attributes) that occur in His Great Book and that have been affirmed by His trustworthy Messenger (sallallaahu `alaihi wasallam) -without tahreef (distorting the wording or the meaning), tateel (divesting or denying the Attributes), takyeef (asking how) or tamtheel (resembling Allaah to any of His creation). Rather,it is obligatory to leave them as they came, without takyeef (asking how) or tamtheel (resembling Allaah to any of His creation). Along with this, it is also obligatory to have eemaan in the meaning that Allaah-the Mighty and Majestic-has been described with, in a way which befits Him: without resembling Him to His creation in any of His attributes.”
