The Real Faqíh

leave a comment »

‘Alî b. Abî Tâlib – Allah be pleased with him – said:

Shall I not tell you who the real faqîh is? He is one who does not make people despair of Allah’s mercy, yet he does not give them concessions to disobey Allah. He does not make them feel safe from Allah’s plan and he does not leave the Quran.

There is no good in worship that involves no efforts to gain fiqh, and there is no good in seeking fiqh without seeking a thorough understanding. And there is no good in reading without contemplating.

Al-Âjurrî in Akhlâq Al-’Ulamâ’ no. 45, Al-Khatîb in Al-Faqîh wa Al-Mutafaqqih Vol. 2 pp338-339.
