This question is more about teaching when there are no scholars present in the land, however it is included here because it is still relevant to the wider issue under discussion, which is teaching and conveying what one knows even if one does not have a tazkiyah or graduation. The Shaykh was asked in his lesson, Mukhtasar Zad al-Ma'aad (26th Dhul-Hijjah 1433H) regarding teaching and conveying of knowledge (mp3)
فضيلة الشيخ وفقكم الله هذا سائل من تونس يقول : ما الشروط و الضوابط التي تسمح لطالب العلم ان يقوم بالقاء الدروس و الدورات العلمية في بلده حيث ان البلد الذي نحن فيه لا يوجد فيه علماء ؟
Esteemed Shaykh, may Allaah grant you success, this questioner from Tunisia says: What are the conditions or rules which permit a student of knowledge to give lessons or knowledge seminars in his land (with the knowledge) that there are not to be found any scholars in the land we are in.
The Shaykh answered:
بلغ ما تعرف ، ماتعرف من العلم انشره و بلغه للناس ، و اما الامور التي لا تعرفها و لم تتوصل اليها فلا ، امسك عنها . نعم
Convey what you know, what you know of knowledge then spread it and convey it to the people. As for affairs that you do not know and which have not come to you, then withhold from them. Yes.
