(1) Islamic revival” is a term which is common in these days, such that we find it generally used to refer to the increase of religious practice and the people returning back to judging by the Book of Allaah and Sunnah of His Messenger, may Allaah’s praise and salutations be upon him. What do you say concerning this and with what do you advise the youth….. 034
(2) Proceed with caution, oh you who call to the ‘renewal’ of the religion! ………………………………………………………………………………………… 038
(3) The Categories of Knowledge and the Rulings Regarding Them Knowledge is of Two Categories: Beneficial Knowledge and Harmful Knowledge…………………………………………………………………………. 046
(4) Question: Certainly in these days many associate themselves with calling to Allaah, making it necessary that we know who are truly the recognized people of knowledge; those who are in fact engaged in guiding the Muslim Ummah and its youth upon the true and proper way. Therefore, who are those scholars that you advise the youth to strive to benefit from, to follow and hold to their regular lessons and audio tapes, and to take knowledge from them, and who are those who we should refer to in significant issues, any dilemmas or difficulties that occur, and during times of tribulation and confusion?………………………………………………… 050
(5) Question: What are the Sharee’ah guidelines which enable the Muslim to preserve his adherence to Islaam, to hold closely to the methodology of the first three generations of believers such that he avoids straying from it, and protect him from being influenced by foreign ideologies of misguidance?……………………………………………………………………… 056

(8) Question: What is best for the students of knowledge: to devote themselves completely to seeking knowledge, and then afterwards fully dedicate themselves to spreading knowledge among the people, inviting their neighbors and those around them to Allaah? Or is it better to seek knowledge for perhaps a month and then to stop studying, due to the need to engage in calling to Allaah and so proceed according to the limits of the knowledge one has acquired?……………………………………….. 066
(9) Question: You have mentioned before about the importance of seeking knowledge and devoting oneself to it. Is the meaning of this that the student of knowledge, in doing so, separates himself from the people and from other beneficial endeavors? I hope that you would clarify this, due to the importance of this issue…………………………………………. 068
(10) Question: Esteemed sheikh, I love you for the sake of Allaah and I ask Allaah, the Most Glorified and the Most Exalted,to gather us, you, and all of our Muslim brothers all together in Jannah. To proceed: Esteemed sheikh, we hope to receive from you guiding advice for the youth in this city, as there is between them many differences or divisions, each one saying he is upon the truth; and Allaah knows in reality who is upon the truth. So we hope from you guidance and advice as to how they should specifically proceed in beginning their studies or when initially starting to seek knowledge?…………………………………………………… 070
(11) Question: Many youth have abandoned reading the books of the first three generations of Muslims and thus correcting their beliefs by them. By this what is meant is such books ‘as-Sunnah’ of Ibn Abee ‘Aasim, as well as other similar books which explain the methodology and position of the people of the Sunnah and the Jam’aah in relation to the Messenger’s Sunnah and those who adhere to it, and in relation to the ways of innovation and their people. They have become occupied with reading works of those known as “thinkers” or “callers”, those who have in their statements that which contradicts and opposes the contents of books of our Salaf. What is your advice for these youth? Also, which are the books of the methodology of the first generations of Muslims which you advise them to read in order to correctly build their beliefs upon or correct their beliefs by?………………………………………………………… 074

(12) Question: We have noticed that in the present day the number of Sharee’ah universities, colleges, and institutes, and similar places of learning have spread. However along with this increase, we see that they are not able to produce scholars similar the those who came forth during the previous ages from the circles of learning in the masjids.

Or to read some of the books regarding the communist system and methodologies similar to it? Not in order to be impressed by them or with the intent to act according to them, but simply for the purpose of familiarity as mentioned previously? ………………………. 120
(24) It is known that calling to Allaah requires Sharee’ah knowledge. But is the knowledge that is necessary for that the memorization of the texts from the Qur’aan and Sunnah? And is the knowledge we study in the schools and the universities sufficient for calling to Allaah?
(25) Which is better for the student of knowledge: to begin with the study of the explanations of the Noble Qur’aan, or the memorization of hadeeth texts, or the study of the various ruling of the religion and the fundamental principles of these two area of knowledge? ………… 122
