Qaala Rasoolullaahi Sal-Allāhu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam - "Talabul-'ilmi Fareedatun 'Ala Kully Muslimin"
Rasool Allāh Sal-Allāhu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam said: “Seeking Knowledge is an obligation upon all Muslims”
(Sunan Ibn Majah)
Knowledge is such an illumination (Noor) that when it shines on an Unknown, that Unknown no longer remains unknown; it becomes known with its qualities and characteristics.
Imagine if we lived our entire life without knowing what Allah Subhaanahu wa T'aalaa expects of us? Have we then fulfilled our purpose in life? The obvious answer is “No”!
Therefore, acquiring correct Knowledge is a first and foremost obligation upon all Muslims.
