Imaam adh-Dhahabi (the student of Ibn Taymiyyah) rahimahullah said:

فالذي يحتاج إليه الحافظ أن يكون تقيا ذكيا نحويا لغويا زكيا حييا سلفيا

“That which a scholar/student of knowledge needs to have is:

  • – Taqiyan [possess fear of Allah (taqwa)]
  • – Dhakiyah [be intelligent]
  • – Nahwiyan [firm in Arabic grammar]
  • – Lugawiyan [firm in Arabic language]
  • – Zakiyan [pure in action and/or intentions]
  • – Hayiyan [shy]
  • – Salafiyyan [follow the way of the Salaf As Saleh]”
