Bismillah Hirahaman Niraheem
While in college, I have always found a vast difference in my depth of understanding subjects which are taught by someone and those which I learnt on my own. Also the food cooked by asking some experienced cook is more delicious than the one cooked by looking its recipe over the internet. That is why while learning we look for a reputed college with good staff and while cooking we rather ask our mother than learn every recipe through the internet.
Then why is it we don’t apply this to gain Islamic knowledge and are content with learning religion through some books or through the internet. Why don’t we really look for someone to guide us, one who is experienced and more knowledgeable in matters of deen and diseases of the heart.
