Shaykh Yasir Qadhi discusses a very important topic of the hour which is an impending crisis in knowledge of Deen.
The Shaykh quotes numerous instances to support his stance of how knowledge precedes every magnanimous quality that one may have. For example, the story of the mother who cursed her child on his failure to respond to her call on numerous occasions and how Allah accepted her Dua while causing no harm to the son too.many stories illustrate the blessings of having sound knowledge. Please do listen.
A knowledgeable scholar is better than any act of worship. Knowledge takes superiority over worship too. For instance,through knowledge, the superiority of Adam AS was exhibited over angels as the angels were great in every way except that they had not been blessed by Allah with Ilm or knowledge.
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ says – “If Allah intends goodness for someone, He gives him understanding of the religion.” [Sahih Bukhari]
