The below is taken from Ibn Rajab’s jaami’ al-uloom wal hikam. Under his explanation of the hadeeth:




قال : ( الله ، ولـكـتـابـه ، ولـرسـولـه ، ولأ ئـمـة الـمـسـلـمـيـن وعــامـتهم ) رواه مسلم [ رقم : 55 ]


عن أبـي رقــيـة تمـيم بن أوس الـداري رضي الله عنه ، أن النبي صلى الله عـليه وسـلم قـال ( الـديـن النصيحة ).

قلنا : لمن ؟؟





‘The Deen (religion) is naseehah (advice/sincerity)’. We said ‘To whom?’ He said ‘To Allah and His Book, and His Messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk.’ [Related by Muslim]

و من أنواع النصح لله تعالى و كتابه و رسوله – و هو مما يختص به العلماء – رد الأهواء المضلة بالكتاب و السنه على موردها ‘ و بيان دلالتهما على ما يخالف الأهواء كلها ‘ و كذلك رد الأقوال الضعيفة من زلات العلماء ‘ و بيان دلالة الكتاب و السنه على ردها ‘ و من ذالك : بيان ما صح من حديث النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم و لم يصح منه تبيين حال رواته و من تقبل رواياته منهم ‘ و من لا تقبل . و بيان غلط من غلط من ثقاتهم الذين تقبل رواياتهم

Among the types of admonition for the sake of Allah and His Book and His Prophet, is that which is specific to scholars, such as returning the desires which lead one astray back to the straight path with the Quran and sunnah, and clarifying the proofs against such desires. Similarly, it includes rejecting weak statements from the mistakes of the scholars, while clarifying the evidence of the Quran and Sunnah in answering them, as well as the clarification of what is correct from the Prophet’s hadiths (صلى الله عليه و سلم) and what is not authentic by clarifying which narrators were accepted and those who were not, as well as clarifying the mistakes from the trustworthy narrators whose narrations were accepted.
