The Best Of The Muslims, By Ibn Taymiyyah


The best of the Muslims are their devoted, active scholars. Ash-Shu’bi said:

“In every nation, their scholars are the worst – except for the Muslims, whose scholars are the best of them.”

Ibn Taymiyah explained it this way:

“Every nation apart from the Muslims is astray, and the ones who led them astray are their scholars, so their scholars are the worst of them. But the Muslims are following true guidance, and guidance is explained to the people by their scholars, so their scholars are the best of them.”

[Majmoo' Al-Fataawaa, 7/284]

    Asalamu alaikum.

    The broher behind this blog has been arrested in relation to some terrorism case. His house was searched for two days.

    There were about 8 or 9 police cars outside his house for those two days and a few officers standing outside his house, while some were inside carrying out the raid.

    Allaahualam where the brother is now, as I’ve not seen him for about 2 weeks now.

    Please keep him in your du’aas, and may Allaah bestow sabr upon him and his family ameen..
