Benefit: Constantly and Continuously Connect with the Scholars

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

  [Q]: Who do we take knowledge and fatāwá from? What are the qualities of the people of knowledge and al-Iftāʾ(i.e. Those who are able to give verdicts)?

Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān: Knowledge is taken from the scholars, either in the mosques if they are in the mosques, or in an organised curriculum in the schools, institutes or colleges. Knowledge is taken from the scholars; it is not taken from the ignorant nor from papers or broadly looking into books. This is not [the way to] seek knowledge, because perhaps it may bring about other than that which was intended or perhaps you may understand wrongly. You might read from a book which comprises of doubts and evils, and this will contaminate your way of thinking.

So upon you is to constantly and continuously connect with the scholars in the mosques, schools and conferences of knowledge. Likewise, those whom verdicts are taken from are known amongst the people. The general verdicts are directed to The Permanent Committee for Islamic Research and Fatāwá. As for personal verdicts, they are taken from the one in whom you have confidence in his knowledge and religion.
