32 – Honoring Scholars


In this episode Shaykh Yahya Rhodus highlights the teaching of the Prophet Muhammad to honor scholars as they are the inheritors of the prophets. In doing so, this pleases Allah and His Messenger. He narrates that prophets did not bequeathed wealth, but they have bequeathed knowledge. Shaykh Yahya then explains what makes a scholar and the importance of seeking knowledge.

The Content of Character is a remarkable collection of sayings of the Prophet Muhammad. Chosen by the scholar, Shaykh Al-Amin Ali Mazrui and translated by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, this book was published to great critical acclaim.

Shaykh Al-Amin intended to show that progress among Muslims required not the abandonment of Islam but the recovery of the original spirit of Islamic enlightenment.

In this podcast series for SeekersHub, Shaykh Yahya Rhodus does a commentary on these concise and yet comprehensive sayings, with a special focus on character-building, morals, good manners and ethics.
