It takes tremendous effort to memorize the Quran, and similar painstaking to commit books of hadith to memory, but it takes Allah’s favour and special grace to understand both correctly as the predecessors did to form your creed in the image of theirs.

If you still wonder how a person could memorize so many books and still not be upon the right methodology (منهج), or even worse, you wonder what is manhaj at all, then look around and you’ll see soofees and other deviants who memorize and recite the Quran like tapes but are still innovators, and many individuals who memorize books of ahaadeeth whose real meanings they do not understand to be upon the understanding and way of the pious predecessors. That is wrongness of manhaj.
