When do we call a person a student of knowledge? [Reminder for those who say: We only invite those who have graduated!]

Question to Shaikh Ubaid Al-Jaabiri (may Allaah preserve him):

When is the (term) Taalib Al-Ilm (Student of knowledge) applied to a person?


If a person is known for (his) adherence to the people of knowledge (i.e. the scholars) and taking from them (i.e. seeking knowledge) from them, he is called a student of knowledge. [End of quote]


All praise is due to Allaah. In the West we have been blessed with salafi students of knowledge- graduates from Madeenah University as well as others who have been seeking knowledge from the scholars for many years. They are known to the scholars for their trustworthiness and firmness upon the Manhaj As-Salafi. They are known to Shaikh Ubaid, Shaikh Rabee, Shaikh Muhammad Bin Haadi, Shaikh Abdullaah Al-Bukhaari and others (may Allaah preserve them all). In our Maraakiz we invite all the Salafi students of knowledge who are trusted by the scholars, whether they studied under the scholars at Madeenah University or studied under the scholars outside the University. We ask Allaah for Ikhlaas, Thabaat, Sidq and Husnul Khaatimah. Aameen
