Feed [TROID] Benefit: Advice to Young Students Going Overseas - It Can Make or Break You!!

In the Name of All?h, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
In the farewell admonition form the seminar: Be in this World as a Stranger, Ab? Idr?s addresses the following question:

[Q]: What is your advice regarding young students who are studying overseas or will go to study, considering that ?alib al-?ilm (seeking knowledge) is something that seems to either make or break a person. So, either these students go over to study and are with the people of Sunnah and are united or sometimes, they are with the people who oppose the Sunnah. Due to the fact that you were in al-Mad?nah for a number of years, what can you advise?

Ab? Idr?s reflects on his time studying overseas, how so many students went over, sometimes with good intentions but then something happened, such that these students connected with the wrong people (at the onset), those who appeared to them to be upon the truth but instead (slowly and subtly) turned them against the Salafis, then later on they go to war against their teachers and communities. He discusses the patterns of this calamity and how a young student can be safe from this. Ab? IdrIs hammers home to importance of being with the scholars, their students and the upright students from the West (those well known and recommended by the scholars). He continues by discussing the fitnah that some students endure when they finish the Arabic programme at the university, that once they comprehend some Arabic, they become cocky, over-confident, independent, focusing less and less on the scholars. Then they turn their attention back home, they observe the people and see them beneath their feet, that no one is more knowledgeable than them! That the students of knowledge (in the West) are no better than them! In fact they may be better than them! Self-amazement and deception. Then the method becomes to acquire as much certification as possible (valuing this over actual tazkiy?t by sitting with the scholars and working under their directive). An important advice for both young students studying or intending to study, and likewise for communities to understand what can happen to their young students overseas.
