A layman like Me is indebted to the Ulama.Had it not been for the Ulama of this Ummah and their countless sacrifices ,an ignorant one like Me could had easily gone astray and left deprived from the wealth of Islam.I cannot really express my gratitude and love to the Ulama of this Ummah in the true sense and in the way they really deserve.May Allah give Us guidance to respect the Ulama and extract all the benefits and gems from the treasure of their knowledge.
"The Ulama are the heirs of the prophets.''
(Sunan Abu Dawud, Kitab al-Ilm, ch. 1: 'Excellence of knowledge'.)
Maulana Sa'ad(Damat Barkaatahum) says:"Ulama ki ziyarat ku ibadat samjho".[Consider visiting(for the sake of learning) ulama as worship].
There are many ahaadith and sayings of our aslaaf on the virtues and value of Ulama.I request all the members to please post authentic narrations regarding ulama on this thread, So that the worthiness and respect of Ulama-e-ikraam is embedded in Us.
(I was looking for a thread which would be dedicated to the Ulama,for the love of them.I haven't found one, so came up with this.)
