Question: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
مَنْ سَلَكَ طَرِيقًا يَلْتَمِسُ فِيهِ عِلْمًا سَهَّلَ اللَّهُ لَهُ بِهِ طَرِيقًا إلَى الْجَنَّةِ
Whoever treads a path to seek knowledge therein, Allah will make easy for him a path to Paradise [Muslim]
So is asking the Scholars considered from seeking knowledge?
Answer: “Yes. It is a means from the means of knowledge. If a person asks a Scholar, either via the phone or by going to his house, then this person has tread a path to seek knowledge therein”
