How To Treat The People of Ilm

In a narration mentioned by khateeb al Baghdadi (Rahimahullah), it said لتطفوا with the people of ilm. This word means many things. From them are the following:

  • To be gentle with the people of ilm
  • To speak to them gently
  • To not annoy them. For example, to not constantly ask them questions. Not asking them a question when they are tired or busy
  • Spending on them
  • Helping them whenever and wherever possible. For example, one Sheikh we know has translated and put something together over 4-5 years!
  • To be patient with them.

This is just a small amount of khidma we should be doing for the people described in such honourable ways.
