Pearl of Wisdom

narrated in Maalib al-Sa'ul, 'A fire set ablaze in the house wherein he was in the state of prostration in his prayers. They [the people of the household] cried, ?O son of the Prophet, O son of the Prophet! Fire! Fire!' But he did not raise his head from prostration until the fire had been extinguished.' He was asked, 'What is it that diverted your attention away from it [the fire]?' He replied, 'The Fire of the Hereafter.'

Question : #289 Category: Taqleed
Subject: Identifying a Taqleed
Question: What are the ways through which I can identify the most learned of Mujtahids?
Answer: There are three ways of identifying a Mujtahid, and the A'alam:

* when a person is certain that a particular person is a Mujtahid, or the most learned one. For this, he should be a learned person himself, and should possess the capacity to identify a Mujtahid or an A'alam;

* when two persons, who are learned and just and possess the capacity to identify a Mujtahid or the A'alam, confirm that a person is a Mujtahid or an A'lam, provided that two other learned and just persons do not contradict them. In fact, being a Mujt ahid or an A'lam can also be established by a statement of only one trusted and reliable person;

* when a number of learned persons who possess the capacity to identify a Mujtahid or an A'lam, certify that a particular person is a Mujtahid or an A'lam, provided that one is satisfied by their statement.
