"And I'm going to tell this. A young man, who was a graduate from one of the top universities in this country.
He wanted to go to Mauritania to study Fiqh. And Jazakullah Khairan, his father...and his mother gave him permission, because they're honorable people.
But she curses me because she thinks I'm the cause that he's not going to medical school.
We can't give one person for this Ummah? Our mothers can't give one son for this Ummah?
How many doctors do we have? How many engineers do we have?
Who's going to learn this Deen, to give it to the people that come after?"
Shaikh Hamza Yusuf
