Who are the scholars?

Allah said in the Qur’an: in Chapter 7 verse 181: “Of those we have created are people who direct (others) with truth, and dispense justice therewith”

Imam Ibn Katheer said in his Tafseer: Allah says: “And from those we have created” Meaning some of those who were created. “Are people” who are upon the truth in speech and action. “Who direct (others) with truth” They say it and they call towards it. “And dispense justice therewith.” They act upon it and judge by it, and it has come from Hadeeth that those people mentioned in the verse is the nation of Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم) , Sa’eed narrated on the Authority of Qatadah in the tafseer of this ayah that it was relayed that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) whenever reading this verse used to say: “This is for you and something like this was given to another people who are amongst you” then he read the verse: “And from the people of Musa there were people who directed(others) with truth, and dispensed justive therewith”.

And Abu Ja’far Ar Razi narrated on the authority of Rabee’ Ibn Anas in the saying of Allah: “Of those we have created are people who direct (others) with truth, and dispense justice therewith” he said : The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه و سلم ) said :”Verily from my ummah there will be a group of people upon the truth until Jesus the son of Mary descends whenever he descends“. And in Bukhari and Muslim on the authority of Mu’awiyah Ibn Abee Sufyan he said: The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said: “There will always be a group from amongst my Ummah who will be clear upon the truth those who curse and diffrentiate from will not harm them until the hour comes.”. …

N.B As mentioned before the Truth is what is found in the Qur’an and the Sunnah upon the understanding of the Prophet’s companions as the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said: “They (the saved sect) are those who are upon what I am upon and my companions.” And Allah said himself in Surah 2-137: “And if they believe in what you all believed (speaking of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) and his companions) they would be guided”.
