A Daily Routine for The Seeker of Knowledge by The Noble Shaykh, al-ʿAllāmah, Muḥammad Ibn Ṣāliḥ al-ʿUthaymīn (d.1421H) with commentary by Shaykh ʿAbd al-Razzāq Ibn ʿAbd al-Muḥsin al-ʿAbbād
Shaykh ʿAbd al-Razzāq Ibn ʿAbd al-Muḥsin al-ʿAbbād said, “Usually, especially at the beginning of the year and particularly with new students, there are many questions concerning the methodology and routine of seeking knowledge, worship and the life of a student of knowledge in general. This is a large question and it is of the utmost importance. Indeed, I have come across a valuable writing and beneficial essay by Shaykh Ibn al-ʿUthaymīn (d.1421H)(رحمه الله).
A questioner asked him to write down a routine that he could follow throughout his life. So, he authored an extremely beneficial writing, and everyone should adopt what he (رحمه الله) has written. I have commented upon his (رحمه الله) speech with whatever is easy. I ask Allāh (رحمه الله) to benefit me and you with his routine that he (رحمه الله) wrote and documented as sincere advice.”
