In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Ever Merciful…
The great scholar, Shaykh Saalih al-Fowzaan (may Allaah preserve him), was asked:
What is “ta’aalum”? And what is your advice to the youth who face trials due to people engaged in ta’aalum?He replied:
Ta’aalum is to feign knowledge. Feigning knowledge. It is when a person claims knowledge, while he is not knowledgeable in reality. He has not taken any knowledge directly from the scholars. Rather, he merely learned some things from books, solely from reading. He lacks sound fundamentals to build upon; he just reads things in books and proceeds according to his own understanding, likely erring more than being correct. This is a person of ta’aalum. He is a danger to himself (firstly) and to everyone (at large), since he plays games with the religion of Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic.Source: This recorded question and answer (audio), as transcribed here (in Arabic).
