CHARACTERSITICS OF A TALIB UL-ILM – WHAT MUST A STUDENT OF KNOWLEDGE POSSESS – THE 7 POINTS OF IMAM DHAHABI

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Alhamdulillah,

Sometimes we only need to read a little bit of information to get a huge deal of benefit from it, Allah blessed this ummah with scholars like Mountains, and of them was Imam Adh-Dhahabi rahimahullah.

Imaam adh-Dhahabi (the student of Ibn Taymiyyah) rahimahullah said:

فالذي يحتاج إليه الحافظ أن يكون تقيا ذكيا نحويا لغويا زكيا حييا سلفيا

“That which a scholar/student of knowledge needs to have is:

  • Taqiyan [possess fear of Allah (taqwa)]
  • Dhakiyah [be intelligent]
  • Nahwiyan [firm in Arabic grammar]
  • Lugawiyan [firm in Arabic language]
  • Zakiyan [pure in action and/or intentions]
  • Hayiyan [shy]
  • Salafiyyan [follow the way of the Salaf As Saleh]”
