The Prophetic Inhertance is being lost

روى الطبراني عن أبي هريرة رضي الله تعالى عنه أنّه مرَّ بسوق المدينة فوقف عليها فقال : يا أهل السوق ما أعجزكم ؟ قالوا و ما ذاك ؟ قال : ذاك ميراث محمد صلى الله عليه و سلم يُقسَم و أنتم هنا ألا تذهبون فتأخذون نصيبكم منه ! قالوا : و أين هو ؟ قال : في المسجد . فخرجوا سراعاً، و وقف أبو هريرة لهم حتى رجعوا، فقال لهم : ما لكم ؟ فقالوا : يا أبا هريرة لقد أتينا المسجد فدخلنا فلم نرَ فيه شيئاً يُقسَم ! فقال لهم أبو هريرة : و ما رأيتم في المسجد أحداً ؟ قالوا : بلى رأينا قوماً يصلّون و قوماً يقرؤون القرآن و قوماً يتذاكرون الحلال و الحرام . فقال لهم أبو هريرة : ويحكم ! فذاك ميراث محمد صلى الله عليه و سلم !!!

Al-Tabarani narrates from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that he passed by the markets of Medinah then stopped and proclaimed, “O people of the markets, how incapable you are!”
They asked, “About what?”

He replied, “About the inheritance of Muhammad (may Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him) is being distributed and you are here?! Will you not go and take your share?”

They asked, “Where is it?”

He replied, “In the Masjid.” They left and hastened there whilst Abu Hurayrah waited for them. When they came back he asked, “What’s wrong with you?”
They replied, “O Abu Hurayrah we went into the Masjid and did not find anything being distributed.”

“Did you see anyone in the Masjid?” he asked.

They said, “Yes, we saw people praying, people reciting the Quran and people learning the prohibited and the lawful.”
Abu Hurayrah said, “Woe betide you! That is the inheritance of Muhammad (may Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him)."

The inhertance of the Prophets (upon them peace) is knowledge and this knowledge is being lost in our time. Great scholars are dying and there is no one is taking their place. We are losing knowledge from all over the place.

Yet, if someone hears about the relics of the Prophet (may Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him) they will travel for miles to see it but who will sit in a class of fiqh or tajweed? This is the real knowledge and this is being lost, as we live in a time in which people follow their passions and they have long since left imiatating the only one worthy of imitation.

While you are on this planet you still have time to change your communites. Read this about the Importance of knowledge.

If you are on masjid committe read this.

If this still does not make sense then read this.
