Concerning Oneself With the Books of the Salaf

الإعتناء بكتب السلف

Question:

We have noticed that many of the youth give importance to reading the general books of educational/cultural sciences, being affected by them; without attaching importance to the books of Usool (fundamentals). So what is your advice may Allaah grant you success.

نلاحظ أن أكثر الشباب يهتم بقراءة الكتب الثقافية العامة متأثراً بها وغير مهتم بكتب الأصول فما نصيحتكم وفقكم الله ؟

Answer:

My advice is to myself firstly, then to our brothers from the students of knowledge, that they concern themselves with the books of the people of knowledge from the Salaf. For indeed the books of the Salaf contain within them an abundant amount of good and a great abundance of knowledge. And Barakah (blessing) which is well known.

نصيحتي لنفسي أولاً لإخواننا طلبة العلم أن يعتنوا بكتب أهل العلم من السلف؛ لأن كتب السلف فيها من الخير الكثير والعلم الكثير وفيها من البركة ما هو معلوم.
