Sheikh Muhammad Al-Amin Al-Shanqeeti (father of Walad Akhtour) considered that my parents, the Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, were among the people of the period, and he mentioned this in one of his lessons on explaining the Qur’an in the Prophet’s Mosque. And it seems that the Saudi scholars had the prevailing opinion at the time to the contrary, so Sheikh Abdullah Al-Zahim, the head of the Sharia judiciary in Al-Madinah Al-Munawwarah at the time, summoned him with a group of scholars to inquire, and the debate took place that Dr. Adel bin Hazman lists in this recording. May God have mercy on the two sheikhs and reward the doctor for this interesting narration, which reveals the sheikh’s glow and his exceptional relationship with the Qur’an.
Memorization ranks, and when it combines with insightful intelligence, we produce scholars who are able to serve religion and serve people with it. We must not skimp on the legal sciences with their share of the intellectual elite, and we must generally distribute the mental elite fairly among the disciplines. Society needs all specializations, and we cannot be creative in any field with the “third era” of each generation. We have retreated in the legal, human and literary sciences because we stingy with the intellectual elite of our children and did not achieve significant gains in the experimental sciences because we did not develop the productive structures that are the basis for wealth creation that allow the translation of experimental knowledge to prosperity. The legal and human sciences must regain their share of our intellectual elite, and we must find the mechanism that guarantees this. We must also realize that the role of literature, legal and human sciences in development is no less important than the role of experimental sciences and mathematics. The relationship of experimental sciences on the one hand, and the legal and human sciences on the other hand, to development is the relationship of ability and will to action.
