Those With Knowledge Who Are Cast Into The Fire

Matan Hadith

حَدَّثَنِي ابْنُ كَعْبِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ عَنْ أَبِيهِ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ مَنْ طَلَبَ الْعِلْمَ لِيُجَارِيَ بِهِ الْعُلَمَاءَ أَوْ لِيُمَارِيَ بِهِ السُّفَهَاءَ أَوْ يَصْرِفَ بِهِ وُجُوهَ النَّاسِ إِلَيْهِ أَدْخَلَهُ اللَّهُ النَّارَ

Narrated Ibn Ka’b bin Malik:
From his father that he heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) saying, ‘Whoever seeks knowledge to contend with the scholars, or to argue with the fools, or to have people’s faces turn towards him, then he shall be admitted to the Fire.’

Narrated by Tirmidzi
Grade: Dhaif (weak)
Translation adapted from sunnah.com

Lessons:

  1. Seeking knowledge is obligatory upon every Muslim.
  2. Have the intention of seeking knowledge to get closer to Allah.
  3. Whoever seeks knowledge to argue with others, he shall be admitted to the Fire.
  4. Whoever seeks knowledge to have people’s faces turn towards him and respect him, he shall also be admitted to the Fire.

Let us purify our intentions for seeking knowledge – to get closer to Allah. Avoid any purpose of pursuing knowledge either to fool others or to gain respect from them.
