How to seek knowledge if there are no scholars in our lands

by Shaykh Saalih bin Sa’d as-Suhaymee May Allah preserve him

Question: There are no scholars or students of knowledge in my land to learn from. What do you advise me to do in regards to seeking knowledge and what should I begin with?

Answer: If there are books from the major scholars, then begin with those summarized versions of it. For example Kitaab Tawheed, Usool Thaalaatha, 40 Ahaadith of Imaam Nawawi, Introduction of ibn Abi Zayd al-Qayrawaani and whatever resembles that.

And if there are found explanations of the major known scholars from tapes then benefit from it. If there are any issues which are difficult, then call the people of knowledge and ask them about it.
