Agama (Islam) tidak mungkin tegak (jaya) kecuali dengan al-Kitab (Al-Qur'an), al-Mizan (timbangan keadilan) dan al-Hadid (kekuatan besi). Kitab adalah yang memberi petunjuk, sedangkan besilah yang menolongnya. Dengan al-Kitab, tegaklah ilmu dan agama. Dengan al-Mizan hak-hak harta dapat ditunaikan. Dan dengan al-Hadid hukum pidana Islam dapat ditegakkan.(Majmu al-Fatawa : 25/365)

KNOWLEDGE AND HYDROCEPHALUS

SHEIKH 'ABDULLAH 'AZZAM (ASY-SYAHID, INSYAALLAH)




"...Allah's way of building the human soul is to develop it gradually, just like a building. You build a building floor by floor, placing one brick over the other, etc. until the human soul is fully built.

The human soul cannot be built overnight, it cannot be built overnight. It needs a long time to be built...build it gradually, just like the body grows gradually. When a person is born, he is half a meter tall, for example. One day, he will be seven years old, and one day he will be seventy-five years old. He will grow from being a meter tall to being a meter and a quarter tall, etc. When he gets to be twenty years old, he will be between 170 to 175 centimeters tall.

The human soul is exactly like this when it comes to gradually growing in the religion. This is why the Lord of Honor would reveal the Qur'an one, two, or three verses at a time and would require them to act upon those verses. The Companions of the Messenger of Allah would take one, two, or three verses - never more than ten at a time - and then go act on them. They would then come back, learn some more, and go act on what they learned. As Ibn Mas'ud said: "We learned knowledge and action with the Qur'an."

Therefore, it is very dangerous for you to have a lot of knowledge while having only a modest level of action. The one who hears you thinks to himself 'Ma Sha' Allah!' He hears you talking about this verse from the Qur'an, this hadith, the hadith being authentic, the hadith being weak, 'Aqidah, Islamic history, the Khulafa', 'Umar said this, Abu Bakr said that - may Allah be Pleased with them all.

However, you are ten centimeters when it comes to action, and when it comes to knowledge, you are over three meters. There is no balance! This is a disease. Having a lot of knowledge without action is a disease just like having a lot of action without knowledge.

There is a disease in the medical field known as hydrocephalus. It is when someone's head becomes so enlarged that his body is unable to carry it. I saw someone with his head like this, his body was thin, and his knees were unable to support his head. It could not! This is what many people look like: they learn a lot of knowledge - they memorize, they do not learn - they memorize. However, his head is poised like this while his body and limbs cannot support it. The size of a person's head must be consistent with the size of his body. Otherwise, he will be considered diseased if any part of his body grows larger while the rest of his body doesn't grow. If the medicine he takes all goes to one part of his body - for example, it all goes to his nose - his nose will become bigger than the rest of his head, and he will be deformed!

So, the Religion of Allah is a gradual divine method of developing the human soul just like this. Just like a medicine dropper administers the medicine gradually, they would take two verses or two ahadith, and they would go act upon them just like this..."

STUDY THE SUBJECTS THAT WILL CHANGE THE WORLD

SHEIKH 'ABDULLAH 'AZZAM (ASY-SYAHID, INSYAALLAH)


"...Look at these Ba'this. Here is Michel 'Aflaq (Christian co-founder of the Ba'th Party), who ruled two significant portions of the Arab world. He positioned himself upon the throne of 'Umar bin 'Abd al-'Aziz (i.e. Syria), and he now positions himself upon the throne of Harun ar-Rashid (i.e. Iraq).

Michel 'Aflaq obtained the post of Minister of Education in Syria for a few months - he was just a minister - and he took the Ba'this and sent them to study in La Sorbonne (a university in Paris). What did he send them to study? Philosophy, psychology, history, social sciences, economics, politics - not medicine or engineering - because these are the subjects that change societies, and these are the subjects that change mentalities. As for the professor in the college of engineering, what will he change? He will keep teaching the same theories of engineering. As for history, you can paint it as you wish, and you can distort the events that you want and paint what you wish in a good light (i.e. you can affect what you are teaching).

And they actually did this, and they came back and took over the University of Damascus. They occupied the position of guiding a generation. So, you do not find them directing their little pigs except to study the social sciences, and they never enter the colleges of science. Why not? Because when it comes to the colleges of science, if a Christian studies chemistry, will it change anything? N2 + HCl will always equal N2Cl + H2. Will this formula ever change? It will never change. Hydrogen sulfate with the Ba'this is H2S04, and with the Muslims it is also H2S04. Will they bring about a new law of chemistry? They will not bring about a new law of chemistry.

As for history, building your mind, building your character, look at the Jews. The Jews in America and outside of America occupy positions in Eastern studies, Islamic studies, Arabic language studies, history, economics, etc. You find Henry Kissinger and Safroni - two Jews, and the Jews respect them - if anyone in the world wants to be respected, they say that they studied with Kissinger or Safroni. Many ministers in the Arab world studied under him, yes! In our lands, one by one. Over twenty ministers graduated from the same university, and the Jews sent them back after having wiped out all the Islam that was in their conscience with bleach...they send him back to his country with letters of recommendation from the university and its professors, along with any articles he had written - articles in the Times about economics and the Arab mind - he writes a few articles and becomes a minister in his country!

As for us, we want the Muslim doctor, the Muslim lawyer, the Muslim engineer - what will he do all day behind the bricks, the cement, and the laborers? A laborer who works with cement from dusk till dawn - do you think he will have time to listen to anything you have to say? He is simply looking to put food on the table. He is not in the mood to listen to what you have to say. He is simply looking to put food on the table. You have ruined it for yourself, except if you wish to build houses with Islamic designs. This is another story! If you want to design windows with Islamic designs and to put on them Andalusian embroidery, this is another story. Maybe we can benefit from your embroidery, if Allah Wills! The door is on the right and the exit is on the left...maybe, if Allah Wills, we can benefit from your knowledge!

We would advise our brothers to study Shari'ah, to study literature, to study Arabic literature, to study history..."
