When a Person Thinks He Doesn’t Need the Scholars
The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:
If a student of knowledge considers himself not in need of his scholars, he will fall down, and the more he considers himself not in need [of them], the louder will be the sound of his fall.
He who hasn’t gone knee to knee with others in the gatherings of scholars; hasn’t learned good manners and character from their good manners and character; and has cut them out of his own narrations, foul and repulsive will be the course he takes, and weak will be his understanding; and he will dare to venture into things the scholars, fearing sin, have stayed away from.
So either he fixes himself, or, bit by bit, he will come down.

إن استغنى طالب العلم عن علمائه سقط، وكان لسقوطه دويّ بقدر استغنائه.
ومن لم يزاحم الرّكب في مجالس العلماء، ولم يتأدب بأدبهم، وقطع سنده عنهم، قَبُح سيرُه، وضعف فهمُه، وتجرأ على ما تورع عنه العلماء.
فإما يتدارك أو يتهالك.
