First Al-Qawaaid Al-Arba' Class!

Today was our first Al Qawaaid Al Arba class with Al Baseerah. It is very organized compared with some other online classes I've taken and the first lecture was great. It was all about the history of Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahaab.

I've always admired the work that Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahaab did. One of the new things that I learned from this lecture was that when he first started studying he copied by hand many of the books he studied to have for his own personal library. Can you imagine writing, word for word, the books of the great scholars like Ibn Taymiyyah? I also learned that once he found an Amir that would support him he was able to teach and spread his knowledge more easily. And this knowledge still is being taught today.

Unfortunately there are a lot of people who have the wrong idea about him and his work.

I am really looking forward to the rest of this class and I'll keep you posted on new things I learn.

Keep yourself busy by learning useful material about the sirah of our prophet and sahaba instead of commercing for wahabisim , Allahu a'lam about his intention about his work but I don't think belonging to other than our Teacher the best example of mankind and calling myself wahabi or salafi is the right path.

Assalamu 'alaykum,

Masha'Allaah sis, glad u enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to attending on Tuesday insha Allaah.

And yeah, I agree, alot of ppl definitely have the wrong idea of sh. Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab, subhanAllaah they think he started this new movement, when in fact what he did was revive the sunnah, may Allaah reward him for his hard work and efforts, ameen!

Thanks for the 'concern' but I'm just fine learning what I am. Your comment about Wahaabism really just shows your ignorance of the topic at hand. May Allah guide you.

Asalamu Alaikum sister... yes it really was great mashallah and I'm looking forward to another session as well. I might listen in again!

As you can see I already have a negative commenter about the whole thing.. people need to get a life and leave those of us alone who are just trying to gain knowledge.

Yeh, just noticed that, just shows the ignorance of many out there. May Allaah keep us all upon the straight path, ameen.

@ Abdullah:

Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahaab (May Allah have mercy on him) revived Islam in the hearts of many. It really gets me angry when people slander this great Shaykh without knowing his character and work!!!! It is an insult! Read about him and find out the truth! May Allah Guide you!

There is NO SUCH THING AS WAHAABISM! Sorry, just needed to get that point across!
