How A Student Should Benefit From His Books

Is relearning a matn (text) from the mutoon (texts) of 'ilmmiyyah as-Shari’yyah more virtuous or should one suffice with learning it one time and then move to the next matn? Benefit us (O shaykh), may you be rewarded.

This depends upon the understanding of the student. So if the student has a strong understanding and understands accurately, it’s better for him to move to the next matn.

As for the student who has a weak understanding and doesn’t understand the text, he should repeat the text until he understands it well.

No doubt, repeating the text a second time is for affirmation of the information (or knowledge).

And with Allaah is the tawfeeq.
