The following article is a great read on the crises of Knowledge among the Muslims of today compared to the Muslims of Salaf Saliheen.
By Khalid Baig
Imam Malik bin Anas (b. 93 AH, d. 179 AH) was one of the greatest Islamic scholars of all times. Among his 1300 disciples were people from all walks of life; rulers, judges, historians, Sufis, poets, and scholars of Qur’an, Hadith, and Fiqh (Jurisprudence). The Khalifah attended his class as an ordinary student along with others.
In the best traditions of this Ummah Imam Malik considered his knowledge as a trust. When he knew something to be right or wrong, no intimidation could stop him from declaring so. It was his fatwa that divorce given under compulsion is invalid, that earned him the wrath of the ruler (as it implied that pledge of allegiance given under compulsion was also invalid). He was punished with lashes and at every strike he said,
“I am Malik bin Anas and I declare that divorce given under compulsion is invalid.”
Narrated Ibn ‘Umar, The Prophet said:
“Oppression will be a darkness on the Day of Resurrection.”
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 43, Number 627.
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: The Prophet sent Mu’adh to Yemen and said,
“Be afraid, from the curse of the oppressed as there is no screen between his invocation and Allah.“
Shahih Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 43, Number 628.
