Directing the Student of Hadeeth on How to Open its Gate
by Muhammad ibn ash-Shaykh ‘Alee ibn Aadam al-Ityoobee

Translated by Aboo Shaybah

A few lines of poetry containing some general, but important, guidelines for a student to follow from the beginning stages of learning, as well as throughout the duration of study. (Taken from al-Fawaa’id as-Samiyyah, pg. 29)

[1] My dear one, you must know that
it is imperative in this discipline that you perfect it

[2] by regularly attending the gatherings of those who have preserved the knowledge,
respecting them, and without any disdain;

[3] memorizing, understanding, and always observing Taqwaa,
and maintaining humility towards every Muslim;

[4] revising, while understanding, with those of sound guidance,
avoiding those who are foolish and destructive.

[5] If you find none to revise with, then you must continue
poring over the statements of the well-versed scholars who preceded.

[6] Indeed, anyone who has been blessed to peruse
their words, with both memorization and comprehension

[7] shall certainly have the gates opened for him
by his Lord, who removes all barriers.

[8] We ask You, O Allaah, to allow us
to achieve our aspirations in this expansive field.
