Possessing scholarly knowledge of Islam brings you closer to your lord,
Most Exalted. He is the Possessor of all knowledge and out of His Mercy,
has granted some knowledge to His Creation so that they can learn about Him
and love Him and Worship Him alone. Such sacred knowledge provides a direct
route to whomever toils for it, to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing be upon him);
and what an excellent inheritance it is. no honour could be greater and sublime than taking
from the fountains of Prophets and Messengers.
Abu Darda' (Allah be pleased with him) said, "Indeed I heard
the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing be upon him) say:
'Whoever treads a path in search of knowledge, then Allah makes
easy a path for him towards Paradise. The angels lower their
wings approvingly for the seeker of knowledge. Indeed everything
in the Heavens and on Earth seeks forgiveness for the scholar,
even the fish in the sea. The virtue of the scholar over the
worshipper is like the full moon over all the other planets.
The scholars are the inheritors of the Prophets. The Prophets
do not leave gold or silver to be inherited, rather they leave
knowledge, so whoever takes from that has taken an abundant share."
Muslim communities around the world are suffering from a general
absence of traditional Islamic learning and scholarship.
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said,
"Whomever Allah wishes well for, He gives deep understanding in religion."
Thus overcoming chaotic curriculum in a confused world, we need to reconnect
to the fundamentals of learning knowledge and revive our intellectual heritage
for the purpose of wholly embracing Islam and seeking thereby, the pleasure of
our lord and a hope of companionship with the Prophets in the Hereafter.
In this eighth instalment of the Ibn Rajab series, the illustrious Imam,
may Allah have mercy upon him, penned a truly inspiring work highlighting
the merits of knowledge, its types and the role it plays in transforming an
individual. Indeed the cure for ignorance is to embark on a noble journey in
search of knowledge, with its path leading to Paradise. This gripping classical
masterpiece will remain a referral guide for everyone intent on joining the ranks
of the elite of the Muslim Ummah.
