Umm Sulaim's Thoughts

Thoughts Lead To Appreciation


From Umm Sulaim, Allah’s slave-woman to Abu Qatada. Peace be on whoever follows Guidance.


‘Ilm Al-Fiqh is usually interpreted as Jurisprudence or Science of Jurisprudence.

I say: It is the Knowledge of Understanding or the Science of Comprehension.

Can you guess the reason behind that? Let me help you.

When one learns the Arabic – or even its language interpretations – sources of ISLAM, one is aware that Allah said or Messenger of Allah said. And one may act based on that. That is the first component of Knowledge: Learning.

Then comes the Knowledge of Understanding, wherein one learns to comprehend what one has learnt. This enables one to discern suble differences and similarities in cases and analogies. Whoever appreciates ‘Ilm Al-Fiqh should not have any major difficulty in proceeding to the final stage of Knowledge: Application.

The absence of this is the evidence of the lack of the second phase. For in that case, one preaches what one does not practise and practises what is not from this DIN.

My brother, you are aware that you earn by practising what you preach.

May Allah help you to be from those who learn, understand and practise this DIN. Aamiin!!

The recipient was Abu Qatada.
