Here are the Children's Educating Ulama

Here are the Children's Educating Ulama
Letting Resources and Books, for Child Education
As said by Imam As Syafi'i, that knowledge will not be obtained except with 6 cases, one of which is property or material. Therefore, the scholars did not spend their money in order to continue the education of their children.

Who doesn't know Mama Is Not Sufficient (991 H), a great scholar who has more than 600 works. Mastering various kinds of scientific disciplines in Islam, memorizing more than 200 thousand hadith. He even admitted that he had owned the ijtihad machete. And at the age of 21 has produced a work. One of the works that is very popular for the Indonesian Muslim community is Tafsir al Jalalain

His greatness can not be separated from his father's education and work in preparing his education. His father had prepared a library of various books, before As Suyuthi was born, so that Syafi'iyah scholar was dubbed as Ibn Al Kutub (the son of the book), because he was born on the sidelines of the pile of books. So it's no wonder, if it's easy for As Suyuthi to have a lot of references.

Ibnu Al Jauzi
(510 H), a well-known ulama in the Hambali school also received a lot of inheritance from his father, to support his education. This was revealed, when he gave advice to his children, to always be patient in seeking knowledge, and always maintain self-respect. He wrote in Al Kabid Laftah, fi Nashihati Al Walad, about his advice to his son, when they were young: "Know O my son, that my father is a rich man, and has left thousands of treasures. When I was baligh, he gave me 20 dinars and 2 home, then I took the dinar to spend the book, then I sold the house and I used the money to seek knowledge, until the treasure ran out, nothing left, your father was not insulted by seeking knowledge, so he traveled to the countries in search of compassion for others. felt sufficiency, Allah said: "Whoever is devoted to Allah, then Allah will give a way out and rizki in an unexpected way".

Then he said, "So, my son, earnestly to keep your honor, not to look for a world that would humiliate its owner. Someone says that anyone qona'ah of bread, then he will not be a slave to man" .

Ibnu Al Jauzi
dare to go through hardships when he searches for knowledge, among others, hardship in sustenance, but he still patient. Until when the knowledge he has gained is so great, then the rezekilah come to him (See his biography in Tadzkirah Huffadz, Imam ad Dzahabi, 4/1347).

Yahya bin Ma'in
(233 AH) is also not too bad, Imam Bukhari's teacher gets a legacy from his father of 1 million dirhams and 50 thousand dinars. They all spent Yahya looking for the hadith, so that he did not have it. From that property, Yahya had 114 full bookshelves (see, Tahdzib At Tahdzib, Al Atsqalani, 11/282).

Similarly Imam As Syaibani Al Kufi (189 AH), one of the students of Imam Abi Hanifah, he said: "My father left me 30 thousand dirham, I used 15 thousand for nahwu and poetry, and the rest for hadith and fiqh (see, Al-Dajdad, Khotib, 2 / 173)

The same thing happened Hisham bin Ammar At Tsulami (245 AH), teachers from Imam Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawud, Nasa'i and others. His father rented their home for 20 dinar, for the cost of Medina, in order to hear the hadith from Imam Malik (see Tahdzib Al Kamal, Al Mizzi, 3/1144)

Not much different from the sacrifices of parents Ali Bin Ashim Al Wasithi (201
H), one of the Hafidz of Baghdad, who also became Sheikh Ahmad and Yahya Ad Duhli (Imam Al Bukhari's teacher). Where at one time, his father told him, "I have given money of 100 thousand dinars, and I do not want to see your face, except after you get 100 thousand hadith!" (see, Tadzkirah Al Huffadz, Ad Dzahabi, 1/317).

Not far away from the classical scholars and contemporary scholars, Sheikh Badru Al Alim, Muhadits of India, who gave ta'liq (comments) to Faidhu Al Bari, the syarah (explanation) of Shohih Al Bukhari, written by Al Muhadits Anwar Syah Al Kashmiri , also preparing her children's education well. In the early days he settled in Medina, he bought Al Ajwibah Al Fadhilah, written by Imam Laknawi, when he was old, unable to read.

He finally told Shaykh Abu Ghuddah, his pupil "You know that I can not afford to read it, but I buy it for the sake of my family and children, it is better for them than inheritance in the form of wealth." (See, Shofhat min Shabri Al Ulama, 300)

Choosing Halal Requests, for Child Education

Scholars do not just inherit the property for their children's education, they will also take care that the wealth they give to their children is a clean and sacred property. Because, net of wealth also affects the net of any science acquired.

Is Kamal Al Ambari (513 AH), writer Nuzhah Al Auliya, who is also a nahwu scholar, who has a wealth of wealth. Got home from his father's legacy, and only relied on the rental of the shop, which in a month only produced half a dinar.

One time the Al-Mustadhi khalifah 'sent a messenger to him, carrying 500 dinar money, to give him. But Al Ambari refused. But the messenger said, "If you do not want it, give it to your son." Al Ambari replied, "If I created it, then it was me who gave him sustenance"

Al Ambari's words show that Allah has arranged the rizki of his child, so that he does not need to accept giving the hadiyah to his child, which he himself is reluctant to accept the property given by the master, because of wara '(caution).

Ulama: The Teacher and His Companion in Finding Knowledge

The thing that cannot be left out in educating is exemplary. If parents want their children to love science, then they themselves must also love knowledge, so that they can be a good example for their children.
The scholars themselves invite their children to travel together and learn with other scholars. Asad bin Al Furat (213 AH), a pupil of Imam Malik, who had been invited by his father to "explore" since he was two years old, to seek knowledge, together with Arab troops, to Qairawan, Tunis, and to study the Qur'an in the land, and narrated Al Muwatha 'from Ibn Ziyad. (see, Syajarah An Nura Az Zakiyah, 62).

Similarly Mama Is Not Sufficient (991 H), since the age of 3 years had been his father attended the tribunal of Ibn Hajar Al Atsqalani. The passing of father's father does not mean that the child's education should be neglected. Suyuthi's father before his death had been wary of Kamaluddin bin Hammam, the scholar of the time to educate As Suyuthi.

The same was done by the father of Ibn Mulaqqin, teacher of Ibn Hajar Al Atsqalani from Egypt. Before he became an orphan, his father had left his education to a dish called Syeikh Isa Al Maghribi, a mentally receptive reader, to the students of science, until he was better known as Ibn Mulaqqin (son of pentalqin). He was the greatest scholar of his time.

Imam Sam'ani (562 AH), since his 4 year old, his father, Imam Abu Bakar presented him to several scholars, such as Ali Abdu Al Ghaffar As Sairazi, Abu 'Ala Al Qushairi, and some scholars. Then when he was 9 years old, his father took him to Naisabur. Not only that, after he returned to Marwa at the age of 38 and married, his three-year-old son, Abu Mudhafar, was brought with him back to Naisabur in order to study some scholars there. (see, Thabaqat As Syafi'iyah, As Subki, 7/180).

Imam Abu Al Waqt As Sijzi (553 AH), called Imam Ad Dzahabi as Sheikh Al Islam, who is also a teacher of Ibn Al Jauzi, has traveled to search for knowledge since the age of 7 years. He has a terrible story, when he travels to seek knowledge with his father.

One day he spoke to one of his students Yusuf bin Ahmad As Syairazi: "O my son, I have traveled to listen to As Shahih by walking with my father, from Harat to Dawudi, I have not been 10 years old, while traveling, my father gave me two miles , if I look tired, then he told me to throw a stone, then I went on a journey and sometimes he asked, "you're tired," then I said, "yet" .. "Why are you running slowly?" Then I quicken my steps, until I do not have any more, then he holds me ".

One time they passed by a group of farmers. And they call on As Sijzi's father, oh Sheikh Isa, let this boy ride with us, we are together to Bushanj. So his father said, "I take refuge in Allah, from riding a vehicle when looking for a hadith, but we choose a way".

When met Abdul Baqi Al Harawi, he offered me sweets, I replied, "O sir, I love one more juz from Abu Jahm better than eating sweets". He smiled and said, "If the food comes, the outgoing is talk".

See, how is As Sijzi's father educating his child, so that the young child already has a high love for the hadith. And how did As Sijzi's father teach his children to take care of the azzam, to fight the tiredness of traveling. by using stone tools.

Similarly, many scholars, as well as fathers, were also teachers for their children, such as Kamal Al Ambari (077 H) cultivated hadith from his father, Tajuddin As Subki (771 H), taking knowledge from his father, Taqiyuddin As Subki. Similarly, Abu Zur'ah Al Iraqi acquired knowledge from his father Hafidz Al-Iraqi, until he continued the Tharhu At Tasrib sermon that Hafidz Al Iraqi had preached before his death. There are also a lot of narratives that take from father, grandfather and so on.

Similarly, Imam As Syaukani writer Nail Al Authar, has read the book Al Azhar, fiqih madzhab Zaidiyah from his father. There is an interesting story in this regard, which reflects the criticality of Imam As Syaukani. On the sidelines of the study with his father, he asked: "Daddy said, this is Hanafi's madhhab, this is Fulani's school, which is right from these opinions?" His father replied: "The truth is the opinion of Imam Al Hadi." Imam As Syaukani also responded: "It is impossible for Imam Al-Hadi to testify that everything is wrong, so how do we know that opinion is right?" Finally Syaukani's father took him to some of the scholars in Yemen.

Always monitor children's learning outcomes

Not only teach or choose a good teacher. But the scholars also monitor the child's learning outcomes. Listen to Tajuddin As Subki (771H): "When I came from a sheikh, my father (Taqiyuddin As Subki) said to me," show what you have earned, what you read and hear. "So I explain it If I returned from Ad Dzahabi, he said, "show what you have got from your shaykh". If I returned from Shaykh Najmuddin Al Qahfazi, he said, "You can get from the Thingkiz mosque". I came home from Syeikh Syamsuddin Ibn Naqib, then he said, "you found from Syamiyah".
If I returned from Syeikh Abu Abbas Al Andarsy, he said, "You found out from the mosque". If I came home from Hafidz Al Mizzi, he said, "you get from Sheikh As." He preached the word Sheikh with fashih, and raised his voice. I understand that it is intended that I too will feel the greatness of the name of Al Mizzi, until I come to his house more. "(See, Thabaqat As Syafi'iyah, As Subki, 10/399).

The result, no doubt. Tajuddin As Subki became a well-regarded scholar, especially among muhaditsin and madrasah As Syafi'i. So Al Mizzi wants his students to record As Subki in ulaan ulaan ulaan (the highest rank), as well as Imam Ad Dzahabi, wanting the same, although As Subki's age is still relatively young, Ad Dzahabi assesses as muhadits jayyid (good). But his parents, Taqiyuddin protested, was quite a beginner thabaqat. But his teachers also do not accept. Finally As Subki is included thabaqat wustha (middle level).

Indirectly, Taqiyuddin taught his son, Tajuddin, to be always humble, although his knowledge was almost equal to his teachers.
