A Caller To Allah Should Clarify Any Misunderstood Issues Concerning His Pervious Islamic Studies – Shaykh Rabee

Shaykh Rabee said,”If you refered back to the biographies of the Salaf – meaning the scholars/teachers of that imaam, which the biography is about, and his students, you’ll find that they counted from their scholars/teachers those whom they narrated on them one or two hadeeth. 

But the terminologies vary – and Allah knows best – so when it is said (in our time), “I am form the students of fulaan” and “I studied with so-and-so,” the people are mislead [to assume that] indeed he studied with him [the shaykh he claims he learnt from] “Saheeh al-Bukhaari,” “Saheeh Muslim,” “Sunan Abi Dawud,” “Sunan at-Tirmidhi” and Aqeedah at-Tahaawiyyah…etc (i.e it is assumed by others that he is a true student of that shaykh in the sense that he sat with him for sometime studying various Islamic books).

If one [has this] false impression and 0the people understand [it like] this, then it is obligatory upon him [the caller, student] to stay away from this and clarify to them [the people] the extent [of] what he learned from him [the shaykh].

[This must be done so] not to mislead [nor deceive] the people. As many of the people say, “I studied with shaykh Uthaymeen” [rahimahUllah], “I studied with shaykh Bin Baaz” [rahimahUllah], “I studied with shaykh al-Albaani” [rahimahUllah] for example or it is said, “our shaykh said,”… 

[So] the people don’t get the false impression that indeed he [the caller or student] is from his [the shaykh’s] students who were constantly with him and learnt from him [agreat deal of] knowledge! 

If the people think [or assume] that, then upon him [the caller or student] is to make [it] clear, [by] saying, “I studied with him, in one sitting [or gathering], from book such-and-such,” “I read upon him something from Saheeh al-Bukhaari,” “I read upon him something from ahaadeeth as-Saheehah or ad-Da’eefah,” “I sat with him in one meeting,” … for example – clarify to the people. 

He can say, “I am from his students,” but with the condition that he doesn’t mislead the people [into thinking] that indeed he was [one] who continually accompanied him and learned from him this and that and such-and-such.”
