Advice of Ibn Abi Al-Izz al-Hanafi to Students of Knowledge

 

Ibn Abi Al-Izz al-Hanafi [rahimahullah] said:

The correct course for a student is to memorize Allah’s Book and ponder it. Similarly, he should memorize the ahadeeth of the Prophet [sallallahu alaihi wasallam], as much as he can, and reflect upon them.

 

Furthermore, he should learn Arabic and grammar to the extent that he can express himself correctly and understand the Quran and Sunnah well as also the writings of Salaf.

 

After this, he should study the views of different scholars, starting with the companions and then those who came after them, without making any discrimination between them. When they agree on a point, he should stick to it; but when they differ, he should study all the views with an open mind and examine their arguments.

 

Whoever Allah guides is on the right path and whoever He leaves wandering cannot see the light.”

[Ibn Abi al-Izz, al-Ittiba (Lahore: Al- Maktabah as-Salafiyyah, 1401 A.H.), page- 73]
