LESSONS FROM SURAH KAHF (18): ETIQUETTE OF A STUDENT OF ILM 6-10

Students listening to the post Asr dars at Al-Azhar Mosque in Cairo

 

CONTINUED FROM ETIQUETTE: 1-5

6.If the teacher is not feeling up to par (not feeling active, sick, busy or tiredness) then one should not insist that he teach.

When Musa AS insists on an answer and Khazar excuses himself, Musa AS realizes that he has overstepped the bounds of a good student:

قَالَ إِنْ سَأَلْتُكَ عَنْ شَيْءٍ بَعْدَهَا فَلَا تُصَاحِبْنِي ۖ قَدْ بَلَغْتَ مِنْ لَدُنِّي عُذْرًا  ﴿٧٦

(Moses) said: “If ever I ask thee about anything after this, keep me not in thy company: then wouldst thou have received (full) excuse from my side.” (76)

7. When speaking to the teacher keep the adab or etiquette in full form. E.g. in the Quran it is mentioned that the Quraish would misuse “Raina “ to be insulting to Prophet Muhammad without being overtly insulting, thus changing the meaning of a polite word to an impolite meaning.

La takulu raina tulkulu inzarna

8. One should not leave the majlis e dars a gathering of teaching with out permission of the teacher

سُوۡرَةُ النُّور

إِنَّمَا ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنُونَ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ بِٱللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِۦ وَإِذَا ڪَانُواْ مَعَهُ ۥ عَلَىٰٓ أَمۡرٍ۬ جَامِعٍ۬ لَّمۡ يَذۡهَبُواْ حَتَّىٰ يَسۡتَـٔۡذِنُوهُ‌ۚ إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ يَسۡتَـٔۡذِنُونَكَ أُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ ٱلَّذِينَ يُؤۡمِنُونَ بِٱللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِۦ‌ۚ فَإِذَا ٱسۡتَـٔۡذَنُوكَ لِبَعۡضِ شَأۡنِهِمۡ فَأۡذَن لِّمَن شِئۡتَ مِنۡهُمۡ وَٱسۡتَغۡفِرۡ لَهُمُ ٱللَّهَ‌ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ غَفُورٌ۬ رَّحِيمٌ۬ (٦٢)

Surah Noor: Only those are Believers, who believe in Allah and His Messenger: when they are with him on a matter requiring collective action, they do not depart until they have asked for his leave: those who ask for thy leave are those who believe in Allah and His Messenger; so when they ask for thy leave, for some business of their, give leave to those of them whom thou wilt, and ask Allah for their forgiveness: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (62)

9. Serve your teacher with monetary and physical service.

Hadith abu Dawud: “who ever does good to you, do good in return”

10. If you are unable to make a return for the ehsaan of the teacher with a likewise good, make dua with iklhlaas for him or her
