Student of Knowledge and Books

This is a translation of a small on-line booklet called: “Taalib-ul-‘Ilm wal-Kutub” [The Student of Knowledge and Books] which was originally a lecture delivered by Shaikh Saalih bin ‘Abdil-‘Azeez Aali Shaikh in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and transcribed by a student of knowledge then made available for free on the internet in Arabic.
In this book, the Shaikh discusses seven etiquettes that a Muslim, and in particular a student of knowledge, should abide by with regard to books.
(1) Arranging and Organizing Books. (2) Acquiring the Most Accurate Editions of books. (3) Keeping One’s Books Clean and Tidy. (4) Recording the Points of Benefit found in Books. (5) Lending books Out to Others. (6) Reviewing and Inspecting One’s Books. (7) Preserving and Safeguarding One’s Books
