ANSWER by Shaykh 'Ubayd Al-Jaabiree, well-known scholar and retired professor

 

 

from the Islaamic University of Al-Madeenah  [ audio in 'Arabic only ]

 

 

There are a number of affairs that will help someone in this. From them:

 

 

 

[1] Staying close to the people of knowledge, those who are known for:

 

 

  [a] their capabilities;

 

 

  [b] being foremost in virtues;

 

 

  [c] being well versed in knowledge;

 

 

  [d] their strength in (knowledge of) the Sunnah;

 

 

  [e] their adherence to it;

 

 

  [f] their harshness against the people of desires.

 

 

 

It is suitable that they are the ones to take (knowledge) from, the knowledge that is

 

 

paired with wisdom.

 

 

 

[2] Staying distant from the people of innovation and desires, keeping away from their

 

 

gatherings, and not subjecting oneself to their debating and argumentation.

 

 

 

[3] Reading the books authored by the Salaf, reading them with the scholars if that is

 

 

possible. If that is not possible, then asking about the phrases or subjects which are

 

 

difficult to understand within these Salafee books, asking the people of knowledge

 

 

about them, so they can clarify any misunderstandings one encounters.
