Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi​ implores upon us to break free from the bounds and territories of ignorance, arrogance and divisions while enamouring the humility of knowledge through tolerance and acceptance.

Acquiring knowledge should never imply that one would begin to despise, curse, and belittle our fellow Muslims. Rather it would only cement the fact that we have indeed very little knowledge as it is evident that one would not exhibit fanaticism if he had been blessed with beneficial knowledge.

The more one acquaints himself with sound knowledge, the more humble and tolerant of other people and opinions one becomes. As a corollary of this, the more ignorant and arrogant a  person is, intolerance and divisiveness are his marked characteristics. 

Our Shariah is ample proof for proving the humility of knowledge. When the Qur’an and Sunnah was sent down in the midst of a group of ignorant and arrogant people, it moulded them into a generation of humble worshippers that tolerated differences and respected their fellow compatriots as opposed to being ignorant and arrogant.

Listen intently in order that we may also imbibe and inculcate the positive traits of our forefathers.

 

“He who guides (others) to an act of goodness, will have a reward similar to that of its doer.”

Book 16, Hadith 1509
