The Beauty of Knowledge in Islam


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,

I’m thankful to Allaah ta ‘aala, for having been given the opportunity to realise the importance of knowledge in my life. This is my simple advice to all Muslims who want to understand their religion, or to do the da’ee who wants to convey the truth of Islam to non-Muslims – study your religion first. Understanding of the deen is something of which value cannot be put, but it is necessary. Before you engage on your journey of learning, you’d need to value knowledge, value its purpose and its role in our lives. To gain this wisdom, every Muslim should read, Imaam al Ghazzali’s, “Ihya’ ‘Ulum al-Din“. In reading this book, there is a beautiful quote which made me create this post:

“Learning is the glory of mankind,
The wise are beacons on the road to truth;
Man is worth his knowledge, nothing more –
The fool will be his inveterate foe,
Knowledge is man’s hope of life immortal,
Man may die but wisdom liveth ever.”

wa Allaahu ‘Alam.
