This is the first book in the “Classical Knowledge Series” – a collection of selected scholarly works from the past that deal with the subject of religious knowledge. This particular book is a translation of the famous classical work “Kitaab-ul-‘Ilm”, a collection of narrations about the virtues, merits, manners, and etiquettes of knowledge, written by Imaam Abu Khaithama An-Nasaa’ee (Died 234H). In this initial installment, the reader will have a glimpse into the statements and actions of our pious predecessors with regard to seeking, spreading and implementing knowledge. There are over 160 narrations in total, including statements of the Prophet, his Companions, the Taabi’een and the suceeding early generations. In addition to this, the great scholar of Hadeeth of recent times, Imaam Muhammad Naasir-ud-Deen Al-Albaanee, has reviewed the treatise and verified the narrations contained within it, distinguishing the authentic from the weak. So this treatise is of great benefit and deserving of being read and studied by every Muslim, whether in gatherings or individually.
