1. One should be seated in a Deeni discourse with the correct intention. The intention one needs to have is to acquire the love of Allah Ta’ala, His Rasul (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and the Sahaabah (Radhiallahu Anhum). Similarly, one should have the intention of learning Deen, implementing it in one’s life and thereafter imparting it to others. One should not sit in the talk with the mere intention of entertainment or just to increase one’s knowledge.
2. One should sit with complete and utmost respect during the Deeni discourse.
1. The primary purpose for one participating in a Deeni discourse is for one to correct and reform himself and to acquire the knowledge of the sunnah (i.e. the mubaarak lifestyle of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)).
2. One should consider the Deeni discourse as a means of spiritual medication and consider it to be directed to oneself.
1. One should listen attentively to the speaker.
2. Whilst the Deeni discourse is in progress, one should not be engaged in any other activity other than paying attention to the speaker e.g. looking around, playing with the cell-phone, speaking to someone, fidgeting with something etc.
1. Whilst the Deeni discourse is being delivered, one’s full attention should be focused towards the speaker. One should not be engaged in any other ibaadat e.g. making zikr, reciting the Qur’an etc.
2. One should endeavour to sit close to the speaker. Sitting close to the speaker will assist one in focussing better towards the speaker.
1. If the first row is full then only should one move to the second row. The reason being that, unnecessarily one should not allow the back of another person to face towards him.
2. Without a valid reason, one should not lean against the wall while the lecture is being delivered. This is not in keeping to respect.
