All praise is to Allāh; the All-Knowing. May peace, blessings, and salutations descend upon the perfected chosen one who knew what came before and what is to come after; the beloved of Allah; our master, the Messenger of Allah; and upon his family and companions, the upholders of etiquette and honour.
“Between the Prophets f and the one whom death approaches – whilst seeking knowledge in order to revive Islam – is one level in Paradise.”
“Verily, the ‘Ulamā are the inheritors of the Prophets who leave only their knowledge behind as their legacy; not dirham, nor dinar.”
This translation of ‘The Merit of Knowledge and Scholars’ by Shaykh Muḥammad Naqī ‘Alī Khān al-Qādirī expands on the methodology of the scholars – discussing the virtues of seeking sacred knowledge and the merits that ensue.
This book is a must have for all students of knowledge who wish to combine sincere intentions with the best of etiquette; with both their teachers and their study of the Deen.
