    Default Take a Quiz (From Suhaib Webb's blog)

    After reading this, I thought it would be quite appropriate to post here.

    Asalamu alaykum,

    Lets take a quiz! One can only wonder at the large number of debates and discussions that take place on the net between Muslims. One of my teachers told me, The Western Muslims need adab more than knowledge. Knowledge will only increase their arrogance and sense of self importance. Telling words indeed from a great teacher and sheikh.

    The Exam:

    What are the rules for debating and argumenting in Islam?

    There are 10 answers. Try it out, wait for the answers to be posted and see how you did. Anyone under 70% should consider their carrier as an internet Mujadid as over, humble themselves, learn and keep quiet. After all, as the scholars mentioned, being silent and ignorant is much safer than being loud and foolish.

    Assalamu 'alaykum,

    You're right. (smile)

    Some of the replies there were quite beneficial. I'll quote a few:

    - Listen before you speak.
    - If you dont know, admit that you dont know.
    - Dont argue for the sake of arguing/for your own nafs.
    DISCLAIMER: Before you read any of my posts or accept any of my arguments, keep in mind that the above has been posted by a layman who, in most cases, would have been better off keeping silent.

    And [all] faces will be humbled before the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence.
    And he who carries injustice will have failed.

    books about how to study 'ilm, gain knowledge, mentions that the first step is - intention

    if your intention is not purely for the sake of Allah - whatever knowledge you gain will destroy you rather than benefit you

    the second point - and we all fall on this one too - is that whatever knowledge you gain is to be applied.

    May Allah forgive us our shortcomings
