Sheikh Saad Al Attas

Sacred knowledge

The Deen of Islam is the greatest blessing on the planet

One of the obstacles that we face in society is when we don’t have knowledge

We don’t have enough educators in this Deen

A scholar said one of the greatest door that satan enters upon a Muslim is ignorance

We cannot build a house without consulting a constriction expert

We don’t have a strong link with Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala and his Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him)

We need scholars in our community, they are the cement and this brings unity and without that, we have disunity

Learning knowledge is an act of worship

Knowledge is an act of the soul and it empowers us against satan

If we neglect knowledge than we neglect our society

We need scholars to preserve the Deen

Today we have mosques and Masjids but bricks and mortar aren’t going to teach our kids

Once a companion built a roof over the masjid and when the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) found out, he didn’t look at the companion and when he asked what was wrong. He (peace and blessings be upon him) said I was told that you build this roof structure, he said yes. He (peace and blessings be upon him) now is not the time

We should designate money for youngsters to go study

We need to encourage our young to learn the Deen

We have to do this now as we might not have the chance because we might not be able to go to these countries later

The person who say that he doesn’t want to learn because then he would have to follow, this person gets two punishments. The person who finds out but doesn’t do it gets one, even if he weak in following up gets one
