The Etiquette of Seeking Knowledge

This is a translation of the book “Aadab Al Mut’alimeen” by Dr. ‘Abdul Hakeem Anees.

Just tiny reminders for students of knowledge about the manners that they should be displaying towards the knowledge they are seeking, and towards those whom they are seeking it from, and towards the One for whom it is being sought.

These are manners that are taught by the Quran and the Sunnah, and were always implemented by the Sahabah radhiallahu ‘anhum and those who came after them… generations after generations of students.

It hurts to say that nowadays its very difficult to find people who beautify themselves with these characteristics… and that is why we’ve decided to remind ourselves. Hopefully it’ll be a fruitful task.

The Definition of Adab:

 There are many, many different interpretations of the meaning of the word:

1- Praiseworthy actions and words,

2- Restraining and purifying the soul from disliked actions and words
