Sh Buti broke the heart of those who ever trusted him in the past and respected his scholarship and piety. The islamic and sunni thought process is going through conflict and deep metamorphosis. Surely, there is a crisis of religious scholarship. The solution advocating the personality cult of the past dead scholars through their books will not satisfy the thirst of the muslim for learning. There is a simple principle of individual discovery and learning, the muslim needs to memorize by heart:
اتَّقُواْ اللّهَ وَيُعَلِّمُكُمُ اللّهُ وَاللّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ
Be conscience of God, and He will teach you for God is All KnowingIt is a time of anarchy and chaos. Some personal intellect, sh Google and divine guidance can bring the muslim much much closer to the truth than the drop-out shuyukh or puppies to the rulers.
وقال إني ذاهب إلى ربي سيهدين
O muslim, migrate from the land of ignorant, dogmatic, extremist, monolithic, complacent, self-conceited, self-deceiving, and misguided scholarship to the land of personal enlightenment. If you are afraid of the fire of learning and gnosis, remember the following du3aa:
يا نار كوني بردا وسلاما
