Great Speakers, but What About True People of Knowledge

Hadith of the Day:

`Abdullah bin `Amr bin Al-`As (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying: “Verily, Allah does not take away knowledge by snatching it from the people, but He takes it away by taking away (the lives of) the religious scholars till none of the scholars stays alive. Then the people will take ignorant ones as their leaders, who, when asked to deliver religious verdicts, will issue them without knowledge, the result being that they will go astray and will lead others astray.”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

 

We listen to those that comes forth amongst the masses

We scream and yell to listen to their words

We boast about their numbers in following

Unknown to the truth that the deen is not about popularity among the people

But about speaking with truth

Giving them advice

Admonishing for their wrongs

And inspiring them to let go of their whims and desires

and to seek the siratul mustaqueem

We download their clips

Upload their words

Seek their opinions

but follow blindly

without receiving quran and sunnah

It’s not until the true people of knowledge

die

that we are left searching the earth

for one that can give us

feed us

the truth about this religion

this way of life

Islam

Allah
