This podcast is based on al-Fawa’id al-Mukhtarah, one of the seminal works of the great scholar al-Habib Zayn bin Sumayt. The book contains advice on a wide range of subjects that are relevant to daily life, drawing on examples from the Haba’ib from Hadramout. We will be exploring this advice within the context of Muslims living in the West, with the aim of deriving guidance from it on ways to deal with modern challenges.
In this podcast, Shaykh Abdurragmaan Khan begins by cautioning the student who is not ready to not rush in giving fatwa. He reminds the listener that often times the reason one hastens to answer other’s questions is that one wants to be known for one’s knowledge and this is from the lower self.
Shaykh Abdurragmaan goes on to give examples from the earlier Muslims how they were very wary about issuing a fatwa. He ends by emphasizing the importance of the student to get used to saying “ I don’t know.”
