Ta'lim al-Muta'allim Tariq al-Ta'allum - Path of Knowledge (Instruction for the Student) is an abridged compilation by Sayyiduna Imam Burhanuddin al-Zarnuji, may Allah have mercy upon him, on the topic of acquiring Islamic knowledge.
In this brief book, he discussed the qualities of a student. Not only did he identify the problems faced by the students during their studies, but he also offered the viable solutions to overcome these problems. Additionally, he devised the ways as to how the students can gain piety, wisdom, frugality, and perseverance in acquiring Islamic knowledge.
Imam Burhan al-Din al-Zarnuji, may Allah have mercy upon him, (d. 602 AH/1223) was a renowned scholar and the author of the celebrated pedagogical work Ta'l?m al-Muta'allim-Tariq at-Ta'-allum (Instruction of the Student : The Method of Learning). Imam al-Zarnuji was born and lived in Zarnuj, a well-known town beyond the river Oxus in the present Turkistan.
He studied with many shaykhs including: Shaykh Burhan al-Din ‘Ali ibn Abi Bakr al-Marghinini (1152–1197) author of Al-Hidayah, Shaykh Abu al-Muhamid Qawaduddin Hammad ibn Ibrahim al-Saffar; the great Shaykh Hasan ibn Mansur Qadiykhani; and others. The exact date of his death is unknown, though it is speculated that he died in 602 AH/1223 or 640 AH/1242-1243 in Bukhara.
Al-Zarnuji's treatise, Ta'lim al-Muta'allim-Tariq at-Ta'-allum, is a short introduction to the secrets of attaining knowledge. Acknowledged by many as a book in which even the most advanced and experienced teachers find advice they have yet to apply in their teaching, this book serves to create the proper framework for the Laws of Sharia program and its students and teachers alike.
