Question posed and translated by: Abu Yusuf Khaleefah
Q3: What are the books that you advise those who live in the west that don't have scholars in their lands with?
A: Of course those who live in the west or in any land where there are no Ulamaa, firstly I advise them with some affairs:
· The first affair: If it is easy for them to call and travel to the Ulamaa, this is a tremendous good. It is the origin with regards to the acquiring of the knowledge.
· The second affair: If this matter is not made easy for them, then it's possible for them to benefit from the tapes or the recorded lessons of the Ulamaa by listening to them. If anything becomes problematic, they call the Ulamaa by way of phone and seek understanding of the affairs they didn't know.
I also advise them to read the books of Shaykhil-Islaam Muhammad Ibn Abdil-Wahhaab (rahimahullah) as was mentioned. I also advise (them) to read the Fataawaa and treaties of Shaykh Abdil-Azze Ibn Baaz (rahimahullah), as well as the books and the treaties of Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al'Uthaymeen (rahimahullah). Also I advise (them) to read the books and treaties of Shaykhil-Islaam of our time, Muhammad Naasir ad-Deen al-Albaani (rahimahullah). Indeed, these three Shuyookh of-Islaam (rahimahumullah), their books are very beneficial. Also it is to be said about their books that which was said about the books of Shaykhil-Islaam Muhammad Ibn Abdil-Wahhaab (rahimahullah) from the aspect of the simplicity and easiness of the books. The capability of the student of knowledge to benefit from their books is easy.
