Who Do We Take Our Knowledge From?

When it comes to studying our deen, I am my children's sole resource for Islamic knowledge.

I bring the knowledge to them.

I bring ahadith,

I bring scholarly articles.

But there will come a day, in shaa Allah, when they will be out on their own and they will need to seek knowledge for themselves.

Learn knowledge, for indeed learning it for the sake of Allaah is awe (of Him), seeking it is worship, studying it is glorification (of Allaah), researching it is Jihaad, teaching it to those unaware of it is charity, and giving it out to one’s family builds ties. It is a friend in privacy, a companion in solitude, a guide in times of ease, an aide in times of difficulty, a counselor to the friends (of Allaah), a close-relative to the strangers, and a lighthouse for the path to Paradise. (Muaadh, one of the Companions, Salaf us

And they will need to know where to get that knowledge from.

And today, there is a wealth of Islamic knowledge in books and on the internet.

But as we know, not all of that knowledge is reliable. Not all of it comes from reliable sources.

So, I don't have to tell you, that as parents, it is our responsibility to make sure our children know firstly that we take our deen from the Quraan and Sunnah and after that, we must seek out reliable sources such as the ulema kabeer (major scholars) and students of knowledge.

Today, I was discussing the menses and fasting with my daughters and I always tell them where this information and that information comes from. But I know, that if I left them on their own, they wouldn't know where to get this knowledge. Sure, they can surf the web, but what would they come up with?   So, I made up a sheet for them to place in their Islamic Studies notebooks where they could list scholars, students of knowledge and authentic websites to take from.  I thought others may find it helpful as well, in shaa Allah, so I thought I would share it.

This is a set of templates I made so we could keep track of scholars' names, online scholar websites, and names of students of knowledge.
