Being Too Embarrassed To Ask Questions

December 16, 2014 § Leave a comment


Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “A person shouldn’t feel shy about asking questions, whether the topic of the question [itself] is something to be embarrassed about or because he feels embarrassed for fear of being accused of a lack of understanding. Because some students are embarrassed to ask since they are afraid that it will be said, ‘How can he ask that when this issue is clear!’ and so it is said about him, ‘How stupid he is.’ This is a mistake, asking is the key to knowledge.”

At-Ta’leeq ’alaa Sahih Muslim, vol. 2, p. 210.
