It should be noted that these terms, aalim, faqeeh and mujtahid, should not be used to describe just anyone who speaks about Islamic rulings or teaches Islamic material in schools, universities, or cultural centers, nor should it be used for everyone who works in the field of dawah.  These terms denote a level of scholarship that cannot be acquired easily and often takes decades of study.  Prophet Muhammad spoke very eloquently about the superiority of people of knowledge or scholars.  “The superiority of an aalim over the devout is like my superiority over a worshipper or like that of the moon in the night when it is full, over the rest of the stars, and truly the scholars are the heirs of the prophets, and truly the prophets do not leave behind them gold or silver, they only leave knowledge as their heritage.  So whosoever acquires knowledge acquires a huge fortune.”[2] Knowing who is a scholar and who is not is something that every Muslim must endeavour to understand.  In this digital age where information is freely available and easily accessible it is very easy for people who are not qualified to set themselves up as Islamic scholars and the damage they can do to hearts and minds is sometimes unrepairable.  When an unqualified person gives a religious verdict people might be lead astray.   Reading a book, often translated from Arabic does not make the reader a scholar.  He or she is not able to make rulings.  Speaking eloquently in front of a camera and posting it on YouTube is not a sign of scholarship.  The role of a Muslim scholar is to guide people to the right path and to help people feel and be closer to Allah.  They need to be able to interpret not only the Quran and Sunnah but the body of scholarship that developed since the dawn of Islam.   This is not a position to be taken lightly.  In fact it holds so much responsibility that the sahabah and those who followed them avoided giving religious rulings if they were able to do so.  It is said that one of the great scholars of Shariah, Abdur-Rahman ibn Abu Laila, said, “I was able to meet with one hundred and twenty of the Sahabah.  Every one of these companions was asked about specific Shariah issues, seeking a verdict, but they avoided rendering a decision instead pointing to another companion to issue the answer.  They were afraid to give an answer that would be incorrect for which they would be responsible before Allah.”  Compare this to the ease with which those unqualified give rulings in this day and age. Because of his level of study, the scholar holds a very high status amongst the Muslim Ummah.  It is his or her role to help and encourage people to obey the rules of Allah and stay on a middle path in all things, belief, worship, ethics, morality, behavior, and social interactions.  It is also important to understand that scholars are not infallible.  They might be the inheritors of the prophets but they are also human beings with all the foibles and imperfections that come with humanity.  This is one of the reasons why scholars do not take religious rulings or fatawa lightly.  Imam Malik[3]  was once asked about twenty-two different juristic issues.  He only responded to two.  In answering these he prayed seeking support from Allah and he was not hasty in his responses.  It is said that “the one among you who quickly runs to make fatwa, is like one who is running to throw himself into the fire.” Such sayings emphasize the importance of deep consideration when making a ruling.  A scholar is patient and thoughtful.

Role-of-a-Muslim-Scholar-1.jpgThe one who calls people to Islam or teaches what knowledge he has with a sincere intention can be certain of a great reward.  Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of Allah be upon ihm, said, “Convey from me, even if it is a verse.” He did not stipulate that the person should have vast knowledge; rather he stipulated that he should have knowledge of what he is teaching.  Those who teach are not automatically scholars.  Scholars possess certain traits and qualities and a very high level of Islamic education.   

In Arabic the word for a scholar is Aalim.  It is a word that carries a similar meaning to the words faqeeh and mujtahid; they all strive to reach a Shariah ruling via the evidence presented.   This is generally a person who has spent many years acquiring the tools and prerequisites that are required to make ijtihad

One of the most renowned scholars of the 20th century, Sheikh Ibn Uthaymeen described very succinctly what educational standard a Muslim should achieve in order to be considered a scholar.[1] His words are paraphrased below.  Although the word ‘he’ is used, it is to be understood that these prerequisites apply to both male and female scholars.

Firstly, he (the mujtahid) should have knowledge of the evidences that he needs for the purpose of ijtihad, such as the verses of the Quran and ahadith that speak of rulings.  He should have knowledge of the matters pertaining to the soundness or weakness of hadith, such as the isnad, and the narrators in the isnad.   Next he should be aware of what abrogates and what is abrogated and issues on which there is consensus.  He should have knowledge of various matters affecting the ruling, such as reports of specific meanings, reports that set limits, and so on.  He should also have knowledge of the Arabic language and Usool al-fiqh (Principles of Islamic jurisprudence) that has to do with verbal evidence, such as what is general and what is specific, what is absolute and what is restricted, what is mentioned in brief and what is mentioned in detail, and so on, so that his rulings will be in accordance with what is indicated by that evidence.  Lastly he should have the ability to use this knowledge to examine the evidence and derive rulings.

It should be noted that these terms, aalim, faqeeh and mujtahid, should not be used to describe just anyone who speaks about Islamic rulings or teaches Islamic material in schools, universities, or cultural centers, nor should it be used for everyone who works in the field of dawah.  These terms denote a level of scholarship that cannot be acquired easily and often takes decades of study. 

Prophet Muhammad spoke very eloquently about the superiority of people of knowledge or scholars.  “The superiority of an aalim over the devout is like my superiority over a worshipper or like that of the moon in the night when it is full, over the rest of the stars, and truly the scholars are the heirs of the prophets, and truly the prophets do not leave behind them gold or silver, they only leave knowledge as their heritage.  So whosoever acquires knowledge acquires a huge fortune.”[2]

Knowing who is a scholar and who is not is something that every Muslim must endeavour to understand.  In this digital age where information is freely available and easily accessible it is very easy for people who are not qualified to set themselves up as Islamic scholars and the damage they can do to hearts and minds is sometimes unrepairable.  When an unqualified person gives a religious verdict people might be lead astray.   Reading a book, often translated from Arabic does not make the reader a scholar.  He or she is not able to make rulings.  Speaking eloquently in front of a camera and posting it on YouTube is not a sign of scholarship. 

The role of a Muslim scholar is to guide people to the right path and to help people feel and be closer to Allah.  They need to be able to interpret not only the Quran and Sunnah but the body of scholarship that developed since the dawn of Islam.   This is not a position to be taken lightly.  In fact it holds so much responsibility that the sahabah and those who followed them avoided giving religious rulings if they were able to do so. 

It is said that one of the great scholars of Shariah, Abdur-Rahman ibn Abu Laila, said, “I was able to meet with one hundred and twenty of the Sahabah.  Every one of these companions was asked about specific Shariah issues, seeking a verdict, but they avoided rendering a decision instead pointing to another companion to issue the answer.  They were afraid to give an answer that would be incorrect for which they would be responsible before Allah.”  Compare this to the ease with which those unqualified give rulings in this day and age.

Because of his level of study, the scholar holds a very high status amongst the Muslim Ummah.  It is his or her role to help and encourage people to obey the rules of Allah and stay on a middle path in all things, belief, worship, ethics, morality, behavior, and social interactions. 

It is also important to understand that scholars are not infallible.  They might be the inheritors of the prophets but they are also human beings with all the foibles and imperfections that come with humanity.  This is one of the reasons why scholars do not take religious rulings or fatawa lightly. 

Imam Malik[3]  was once asked about twenty-two different juristic issues.  He only responded to two.  In answering these he prayed seeking support from Allah and he was not hasty in his responses.  It is said that “the one among you who quickly runs to make fatwa, is like one who is running to throw himself into the fire.” Such sayings emphasize the importance of deep consideration when making a ruling.  A scholar is patient and thoughtful.
