Debasing and Disrespecting the Ulama: A Fitnah of the Times

Allah Ta’ala says in the Noble Quran :“Are those who know equal to those who know not? It is only men of understanding who will remember (i.e. get a lesson from Allah’s Signs and Verses)”(Quran 39:9)

“ …Verily the Ulama (scholars/theologians) are the heirs of the Prophets, verily the Prophets do not leave behind gold nor silver (wealth), they only leave behind religious knowledge”
(Abu Dawood, Tirmizhi, Ibn Majah)

Disregard for Ulama – An Open Sign of Qiyamat

Better dead at that time … !

Rasulullah (sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) made dua to Allah: “O Allah! let me not be alive and may you (O Sahabah) also not be alive at such a time when the Aalim will not be followed, and when no respect will be shown to the learned ones. The people of that time will have hearts like kuffaar and their tongues will be eloquently sweet like the tongue of the Arabs.” – Targheeb

(al-I’tidaal, Shaykh Muhammad Zakariyya)

Will be treated like dogs…

Rasulullah (sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: “Such a time will come when the Ulama will be killed like dogs. If only the Ulama could become insane ….”

(al-I’tidaal, Shaykh Muhammad Zakariyya)

Rasulullah (sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: “Such a time will come when the death of the Ulama will be more sought after than red gold.”

(al-I’tidaal, Shaykh Muhammad Zakariyya)

Ulama will not be appreciated or valued…

Rasulullah (sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: “That man is not from us (Muslims) who does not respect our elders, neither shows mercy on our young ones nor appreciates the Alim (scholar of Deen amongst us).” –

(al-I’tidaal, Shaikh Muhammad Zakariyya)

Sayyidina Abdullah bin Abbas (RA) says: “Whosoever harrasses any Alim has caused trouble and pain to Rasulullah (sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) and the one who causes trouble and pain to Rasulullah (sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) has caused trouble to Allah”

(al-I’tidaal, Shaikh Muhammad Zakariyya)

Covenant taken from all Muslims to show respect to Ulama…

Imam Abdul Wahhab Sha’rani (R) writes: “A covenant was made with us (Muslims) on behalf of Rasulullah (sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) that we respect the Ulama, the saintly and the elders, whether they themselves act according to their knowledge or not… when anyone insults them, the insults set forth a chain reaction which reaches Rasulullah (sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam). This is kufr. Now think for yourself: The king appoints someone as his ambassador. The king will with attention listen to this ambassador and debar the insulter from his court. On the other hand, the king will make a favourite out of that man who showed respect and honour to his ambassador and who discharged the rights due to his emissary.”

(al-I’tidaal, Shaikh Muhammad Zakariyya)

Fatawa Aalamgiri states: “There is fear of kufr against that person who harbours hatred against any Alim without any acceptable, clear reason.”

(al-I’tidaal, Shaikh Muhammad Zakariyya)
