Islam has given us the laws of spending life and declared it to be compulsory to refer to the knowledgeable people for seeking guidance on any matter and to learn the rulings related to our needs.
How should we learn the Shar’i rulings?
Please read the following Madani pearls in this regard:
1 Make a routine of study: Regularly studying the books of Fiqh [Islamic Jurisprudence] is a means of learning Shar’i rulings. In the beginning, the Islamic brothers should start studying ‘Namaz kay Ahkam’ and Islamic sisters should start studying ‘Islami Behno ki Namaz’. Then start studying ‘Bahar-e-Shari’at’, published by Maktaba-tul-Madinah. Remember! The sequence of Bahar-e-Shari’at is great and excellent. By the blessing of learning the rulings according to its sequence, a person gains the priceless treasure of Islamic knowledge. For growing interest in Fiqh and improving the skill of comprehending and contemplating it, studying Fatawa Razawiyyah is extremely beneficial.
2 Gain blessings of the company of ‘Ulama: There are many such rulings which are not understood by study only. Stay in contact with the ‘Ulama of Ahl-e-Sunnat for learning and understanding such rulings so that the matters can be solved without delay. Madani Channel is also a means of having the company of blessed ‘Ulama. There are such Madani Channel programmes as well in which solutions to the Shar’i matters are provided; especially the weekly “Madani Muzakarah” and “Dar-ul-Ifta Ahl-e-Sunnat” are second to none in explaining the Shar’i matters in an easy to understand way. Watching these programmes and noting down the Shar’i matters explained in these programmes will become a source of increase in knowledge. If one makes it a habit to go to the blessed Muftis without delay or contact them for the solution to any small or big matter, by the mercy of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ, he will be blessed with great ease in this world and the Hereafter. The applications developed by Dawat-e-Islami’s Majlis IT, such as Dar-ul-Ifta Ahl-e-Sunnat, Madani Muzakarah, etc., will also prove to be beneficial in this regard.
3 Do not lose courage: Always remember that learning is based on “being attentive”, continuous efforts and determination, and all of these three things are connected with your courage and spirit. Therefore, do not lose courage in learning Shar’i matters. Showing wisdom, do not pay attention to the taunts you suffer in this path and by making Du’a in the court of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ for ease, continue learning the Shar’i matters till the last breath. As a result of this continuous effort, you will keep having interest and yearning; moreover, the deeds will also be performed correctly because of increase in knowledge, اِنْ شَآءَ اللہ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ.
