#217: Advice on Finding a Good Teacher

My question is where can one find a good sheik?”



May Allah easen for us and you our paths to seeking sound knowledge, Aameen!
Finding a good Shaykh is easy and at the same time difficult. It all depends on where you live and the type of knowledge you need. If you are a person just beginning to learn, then you can easily find around you places you can learn. In fact, as a beginner, you have nothing to worry about when choosing a Shaykh as long as the matters about which you are learning are not Creedal matters (Aqidah) that is because in matters of Aqidah, you must be certain that you are taking from someone who is sound of Creed. And if you are seeking for Ilm at an advanced level, then it requires you simply to study what are known as ‘Ulumu Al-Aalaat’ (the Tools of Scholarship) which enables you to be able to self-digest the texts of the Shari’ah and to understand excellently the writings of the Ulamaa of the Past and Present.
Lastly, based on experience, all you need to do is to be sincere in your yearn for Knowledge and ask Allah sincerely for guidance and direction. Allah will surely guide and direct you.

Allahu A’alam Baarakallaahu feekum; Jazaakumullaahu Khayran!
