Query

Q:

Asslam alaikum brother

 I have a question..I met one person who said that any imam or teacher of deen who get salary or hadiya for his work of deen is not true Muslim.

Wat is the opinion of scholar’s on it and is there any Hadith where it is prohibited.

And during the time of Prophet pbuh

Sahaby RA tabaien and tabatabaien

How it was done.

A:

Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

The person is wrong in making such a judgment. He is heretical in making such highly erroneous and false statements. He should know that the Muslims have been paying individuals for such services from the pious predecessors.  The vast majority of scholars have sanctioned it.

 Ibn al-Qayyim says that declaring things haram without explicit evidence of the revealed text is akin to committing shirk. He infers this from the following verse in the Quran: “Do not say falsely, ‘This is lawful and that is forbidden,’ inventing a lie about God: those who invent lies about God will not prosper.” (An-Nahl 16:116)

Therefore, I would urge you to seek religious knowledge only from those who are qualified.  As Imam Ibn Sirin said, “The knowledge of religion is integral to religion itself; so, one should be careful as to who one is learning it from.”

Almighty Allah knows best.
