Knowledge is not something that can be learned from simply reading a book; it is a gift passed down by the ulema to those willing to receive it. The benefit of studying under a scholar, such as Mufti Abdur-Rahman, cannot be quantified. Rather, I would say with the utmost conviction that as a result of his abilities and knowledge, I have seen a great increase in my understanding of the din, as well as a clearer perspective on issues. Mufti Abdur-Rahman’s teaching style is one that makes you think critically and one that forces you to apply what you are learning. The results are far sweeter than anything one could have cultivated himself.
