    Who is your favourite scholar of Islam and why? By scholar I mean the like of sheikh Fawzan, Uthaymeen, Ibn Taymiyah etc...
    As'Salamu'Alaikum'Wa'Ramatullah, mine has to be Fawzan, Uthaymeen, Al Albani and Ibn Baaz. These noble scholars may Allaah swt be pleased with them never let their whims and desires be injunction within Islam. They have always referred back to the kitab, sunnah and the rightful predecessors. Always with ayat and sound ahadith. In a time of fitan and people adding things into the religion not just these but the scholars of the salaf have held firm. Also scholars of the past such as Ibn Taymiyyah, the four main known today such as malik, Abu haneefa, sha'fi and Ahmed may Allaah swt pleased with all them. I can go on.

    That Mufti Menk guy is jokes. Idk if he counts as a scholar, but he's the only guy I trust that he knows what he's on about.
    Pretty sure he counts as a scholar.

    EDIT:
    Oops it seems I'm wrong lol.

    I don't think its reasonable to have 1 'favourite' scholar but I usually turn toward Dr Yasir Qadhi, Dr Zakir Naik, Mufti Menk, Ustadh Nouman whenever I have questions

    Lets not forget them in our Duas!

    Assalaamu-Alaikum to whoever is reading this

    Just wondering if you've heard of http://www.bayyinah.tv/sp/9942-bayyinah-tv ?

    I started my subscription there a few months ago and it is awesome. There are courses on learning Quranic Arabic, a cover-to-cover 'translation' of the Quranic teachings, an explanation on the way the Quran is written too!

    I just had to recommend it here, especially if you're seeking to learn arabic!

    Not debating. Just pointing out that you have quoted Ibn Kathir out of context. You forgot to mention his explanation of the next verse where he specifies those who may be killed with "justification".
    ﴿أَنَّهُ مَن قَتَلَ نَفْساً بِغَيْرِ نَفْسٍ أَوْ فَسَادٍ فِى الاٌّرْضِ فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعاً وَمَنْ أَحْيَـهَا فَكَأَنَّمَا أَحْيَا النَّاسَ جَمِيعاً﴾

    (that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land - it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.) The Ayah states, whoever kills a soul without justification -- such as in retaliation for murder or for causing mischief on earth -- will be as if he has killed all mankind, because there is no difference between one life and another.

    ﴿وَمَنْ أَحْيَـهَا﴾

    (and if anyone saved a life...) by preventing its blood from being shed and believing in its sanctity, then all people will have been saved from him, so,

    ﴿فَكَأَنَّمَا أَحْيَا النَّاسَ جَمِيعاً﴾

    (it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.) Al-A`mash and others said that Abu Salih said that Abu Hurayrah said, "I entered on `Uthman when he was under siege in his house and said, `I came to give you my support. Now, it is good to fight (defending you) O Leader of the Faithful!' He said, `O Abu Hurayrah! Does it please you that you kill all people, including me' I said, `No.' He said, `If you kill one man, it is as if you killed all people.Therefore, go back with my permission for you to leave. May you receive your reward and be saved from burden.' So I went back and did not fight.''' `Ali bin Abi Talhah reported that Ibn `Abbas said, "It is as Allah has stated,

    ﴿مَن قَتَلَ نَفْساً بِغَيْرِ نَفْسٍ أَوْ فَسَادٍ فِى الاٌّرْضِ فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعاً وَمَنْ أَحْيَـهَا فَكَأَنَّمَا أَحْيَا النَّاسَ جَمِيعاً﴾

    (if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land - it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.) Saving life in this case occurs by not killing a soul that Allah has forbidden. So this is the meaning of saving the life of all mankind, for whoever forbids killing a soul without justification, the lives of all people will be saved from him.'' Similar was said by Mujahid;

    ﴿وَمَنْ أَحْيَـهَا﴾

    (And if anyone saved a life...) means, he refrains from killing a soul. Al-`Awfi reported that Ibn `Abbas said that Allah's statement,

    ﴿فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعاً﴾

    (it would be as if he killed all mankind. .) means, "Whoever kills one soul that Allah has forbidden killing, is just like he who kills all mankind.'' Sa`id bin Jubayr said, "He who allows himself to shed the blood of a Muslim, is like he who allows shedding the blood of all people. He who forbids shedding the blood of one Muslim, is like he who forbids shedding the blood of all people.'' In addition, Ibn Jurayj said that Al-A`raj said that Mujahid commented on the Ayah,

    ﴿فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعاً﴾

    (it would be as if he killed all mankind,) "He who kills a believing soul intentionally, Allah makes the Fire of Hell his abode, He will become angry with him, and curse him, and has prepared a tremendous punishment for him, equal to if he had killed all people, his punishment will still be the same.'' Ibn Jurayj said that Mujahid said that the Ayah,

    ﴿وَمَنْ أَحْيَـهَا فَكَأَنَّمَا أَحْيَا النَّاسَ جَمِيعاً﴾
    (and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.) means, "He who does not kill anyone, then the lives of people are safe from him.''

    [Tafseer Ibn Kathir]

    Im not really sure what you read tbh. Ibn Kathir is discussing that its forbidden to take a soul without a justification.
