NINETEEN LESSONS FROM SURAH KAHF: ETIQUETTE OF A STUDENT OF ILM 11-19

Continued from 1-5 and 6-10 on the etiquette of a student

11. Do not ask incomplete (partial information) or irrelevant questions to test the teacher with a hidden agenda, which would create misunderstandings with others.

12. If the teacher says that right now do not study this, do this when I tell you.

Hadith: Rasool Allah gave a letter to a sahabi and said; until you reach a particular time and place do not read it. There is a time or place for ilm and the teacher knows the relevance.

13. If the teacher gets upset about inappropriate or irrelevant questions then stop and immediately apologize.

Hadith:  Once a person was continuously irrelevant asking questions miniscule in hypothetical detail splitting hairs, and Rasool Allah was getting red in the face (controlled anger) and Umar RA stopped the questioning and recited “radeetu billah e rabba…..

14. In one’s free time, one should try to spend all the time available after completing necessities, with the teacher. Abu Huraira (RA) spent all his waking hours with RasoolAllah, other than the absolute  necessities and when Rasoolallah entered his home. Thus he has the most hadith.

15. Listen to the teacher in silence and with attention (instructed by RasoolAllah at Hajjal Wida prior to his address, he asked people to remain silent and listen)

16. The student should show spontaneously respect in gesture when the teacher enters and exits.

17. If one disagrees on an aspect of deen, but one should continue to keep the etiquette for a teacher and parent despite having a different school of thought.

18. The amount, the content and the organization and time of the lesson should be determined by the teacher, not the student.

19. If one upsets the teacher one will NOT be able to learn.

Quran: Wala inkafar tum inna azaab e la shadeed. (readers please supply complete ayah)

“If one is ungrateful, it decreases the naimah”
