In the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful

Obligation of resembling the scholars

By Shaykh Muhammad bin Haadee al-Madkhali may Allah preserve him

This is taken from a lecture given by the shaykh entitled, “Ahamiyyah al-Irtibaat bil ‘Ulemaa”. The shaykh said,

و تشبهوا ان لم تكونو مثلهم … ان التشبه بالكرام فلاح

And resemble if you aren’t like them … for indeed resembling the honorable is success

It is obligatory upon us all to know that the scholars, those whom it is obligatory to attach ourselves to, are the inheritors of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him. It is obligatory to resemble the inheritors of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him.

Just as Abu Dawud resembled Imaam Ahmad, and Ahmad resembled Wakee’ (ibn Jarrah), and Wakee’ resembled Sufyaan ath-Thawree, and ath-Thawree resembled Mansoor, and Mansoor resembled Ibrahim, and Ibrahim resembled ‘Alqamah, and ‘Alqamah resembled ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ood.

Translated by: Abu Awzaa’ee AbdusSalaam
