Shaykh Hassan Ba Shu’aib was asked:


I am a beginner student of knowledge, I love seeking knowledge. I seek knowledge with a group of beginner students of knowledge at the same time. Between Maghrib And Isha every Sunday and Wednesday we have a lesson in the three fundamental principles, and on Saturday a class in Lumatul Iaatiqaad and Al Mumtia explanation of Al Ajoroomiyah with one of the students of knowledge from Dammaj and he is from Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaah, Salafi.

But the problem is that my family never wants me to go to this student of knowledge, with the claim that he is extreme and prohibits permissible things, so they claim. Such as the Television and other than it. Thus they don’t want me to seek knowledge with him. Is it permissible for me to disobey them and go to the classes, I don’t know what to do! And knowing that I currently go to the classes secretly without them knowing? Benefit us May Allah benefit you.


It being that you are a beginner, then you are in need of these sciences, specifically that which is connected to the matters of monotheism and creed.

Upon this, it isn’t permissible for them to prevent you from learning it at the hands of the Salafi students of knowledge.

Thus be patient upon that which you are upon, seek aid from Allah and put your trust in him.
