Episode Notes

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi addresses the elephant in the room – the issue of celebrity scholars.

These scholars are an embodiment of Fitnah and we should vehemently discourage it.

The story of Umar ibn al khattab RA and Ubayy Ibn Ka’b RA is brought to the fore by Shaykh Yasir Qadhi and we realise what points should we keep in mind to keep this menace at bay.

We are advised to not link religion with one person. This is a big Fitnah. Islam is in no need for us. At time of fitnah, we should turn to Allah and follow the real Ulama instead of looking for the famed ones who may or may not have complete knowledge of all the things related to Islam.
