‘ULAMÂ - علماء
The plural of ‘âlim. Elevated people of ‘ilm.
“the haqiqahs of îmân and the principles of Qur'an cannot be delivered like worldly dealings in an official way and in return for a wage. Rather, those mysteries which are Ilahî gifts can be received by means of sincere intention, by becoming free from this world and pleasures of the nafs.” Biography ( 289 )
