The Take-Away (Hadith No. 85)


It is a sign of the Last Day (Qiyamah) that religious knowledge will be taken away from us. Some people take it literally. Like the words of Quran will vanish and books will have no more words in them. But actually it means something else: the death of religious scholars (and lack of replacements).

Volume 1, Book 3, Number 85:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, “(Religious) knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars) ignorance (in religion) and afflictions will appear; and Harj will increase.” It was asked, “What is Harj, O Allah’s Apostle?” He replied by beckoning with his hand indicating “killing.”

Regarding this Hadith, two reactions are likely. One, accept this misfortune saying that it’s inevitable and nothing can be done about it. Two, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! Be the replacement!

  2. En sha’ Allah! I’ll be one of them who’re going to have something done about this.. May Allah be with us all..

    but i don’t think so, i’m so strong and steadfast yet! As a matter of fact I got carried away by a anime series rather better to say I got befallen in it.. I’m wasting my hours and hours in it.. That’s my favourite anime Naruto Shippudden.. I can’t help it.. If you watch a episode from it you’ll probably 7sni is no more than a kid and i admit it i’m a kid.. You’ll not be the first saying that..
    But I don’t know how I get free of it.. I feel as if I got caught in some ultra ninjustu by Itachi..
