Knowledge – the most precious pearl in the crown of the purified Sharee’ah

Shaykh Bakr ibn ‘Abdillaah Aboo Zayd (rahimahullaah) wrote in the Introduction to his book [Hilyah Talibul-‘ilm], page 138:

لقد تواردت موجبات الشرع على أن التحلي بمحاسن الأدب، ومكارم الأخلاق، والهدى الحسن، والسمت الصالح: سمة أهل الإسلام، وأن العلم – وهو أثمن درة في تاج الشرع المطهر – لا يصل إليه إلا المتحلي بآدابه، المتخلي عن آفاته، ولهذا عناها العلماء بالبحث والتنبيه، وأفردوها بالتأليف، إما على وجه العموم لكافة العلوم، أو على وجه الخصوص، كآداب حملة القرآن الكريم، وآداب المحدث، وآداب المفتي، وآداب القاضي، وآداب المحتسب، وهكذا

“The motives of the Sharee’ah are affirmative upon the issue that to adorn oneself with beautiful etiquette, noble manners, good behavior, and pious conduct are distinguishing characteristics of the people of Islaam, and that knowledge – the most precious pearl in the crown of the purified Sharee’ah – cannot be attained except by those who adorn themselves with its etiquette and those who leave evil qualities associated to it.

For this reason the scholars devoted their attention to (this etiquette), outlined its importance and wrote books solely on this topic; either pertaining to [general conduct] with all types of knowledge or to specific types of knowledge such as the etiquette of the carriers of the Noble Qur’aan, the etiquette of the muhaddith, the etiquette of the muftee, the etiquette of the qaadee (judge), the etiquette of the muhtasib (the one who enjoins good and forbids evil for the sake of Allaah) and so on.”
