Start your seeking of knowledge with the Quran!

Imaam Muhammad Naasiruddeen Al-Albaani, may Allaah have mercy on him, said in his book, al-Silsilah as-Saheehah (No. 1173), commenting on the hadeeth that was narrated by Abu Abdur-Rahaman As-Sulamee from `Uthmaan bin Affaan, marfoo’an:

“The best of you are those who learn the Qur’aan and teach it”.

In this hadeeth is that which points to studying the Qur’aan and that the best of teachers is the one who teaches the Qur’aan. So, the best thing that one can learn is the Qur’aan. If only the students of knowledge were aware of that; for indeed in it there is great benefit. From the misfortune which is prevalent of this time of ours, is that you find many of the callers or beginners from the students of knowledge taking the lead in giving da’wah and answering people’s question, and he cannot even read the Faatihah well, with each letter being correctly enunciated. You see him pronouncing a seen ( س) as daad  ,(ض) tau ( ط) as taa ( ت), dhaal ( ذ) as zay , (ز) and thaa ( ث) as seen ( س), and they make obvious errors (which may or may not change the meaning, but which are prohibited) in addition to concealed ones (obvious to the trained ear and infringes upon the Tajweed without changing the meaning, and which is disliked).

What is mandatory has mercy upon, they always discuss matters of contention. So he gives his opinion on it, and if it becomes difficult for him, you see him favouring an opinion from amongst the statements.

I seek refuge with Allaah from showing off and love of fame and being known. I advise myself first, and those people second, that the
best thing that a student of knowledge can starts with is the memorization of the Qur’aan; Allaah سبحانه وتعالى said;

“But warn by the Qur’aan him who fears My Threat”.

Surah Al Qaaf 50:45

And peace and blessings of Allaah be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon his family and his companions.
