In the Name of Allah the Most High, the Most Compassionate.
I pray that all my Brother and Sisters are in good health.
I wish to officially learn about the Sacred Sciences in Islam, Fiqh, Hadith, Tafsir, Tasawwuf etc.
Are any of these courses available in Canada where one can officially study to become an Islamic Scholar?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
May Allah Guide us all to what pleases him.
A man came to Abu Darda while he was in Damascus. Abu Darda asked him, "What has brought you here, my brother?" He replied, "A hadith which you relate from the Prophet (SAW)." Abu Darda asked, "Hav you come for some wordly need?" He replied, "No". "Have you come for business?". He replied, "No". "You have come only to seek this hadith?" He said, "Yes". Abu Darda then said, "I heard the Messanger of Allah (SAW) say: "Whoever travels a path seeking sacred knowlodge, Allah will place him on a path leading to Paradise. The angels lower their wings for the student of sacred knowlodge, pleased with what he is doing. The creatures in the heaven and earth seek forgiveness for the student of sacred knowlodge, even the fish in the water. The superiority of the religious scholar over the devout worshipper is like the superiority of the full moon over the other heavenly bodies. The religious scholars are the heirs of the prophets. The prophets leave no money as a bequest, rather they leave knowlodge. Whoever seizes it has taken a bountiful share." (This hadith has been reported in the Musnad of Imam Ahmed, Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah relate this hadith in their compilations.)
