When we use the salutations used by the scholars, and the learned in Islam, we are connecting with the chain of nobility………….we want to belong to that spiritual chain.
We then aspire or become a link in that chain.
Thus it all begins with emulating the sages and scholars who learned from the tabaieen who learned from the Sahaba who were in the company of our dear Prophet Muhammad pbuh and learned from him.
DUA: Rabbi zidni ilma
Inshallah with the ikhlaq of His Messenger (pbuh)
