“When Allah wants good for someone, He gives him the understanding of the religion.”Thus, we as Muslims must strive to be among those who are knowledgable, who have understanding and who utilize, implement and share that which we have been blessed with. And, surely, our desire to be among those whom Allah wants good for must be accompanied by action. We must struggle and strive to seek knowledge, to understand it, practice it and share it. Allah says:
“It is only those who have knowledge among His slaves that fear Allah.” (Faatir 35: 28)We as Muslims thus have the challenge to continiously seek and strive for knowledge. However, there is a great blessing from Allah for those who engage in this strugge and effort of seeking knowledge, as the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said:
“Whoever takes a path in search for knowledge, Allah will facilitate for him a path to Paradise.” (Muslim)May Allah guide us to be among those who seek knowledge for His sake. amin.
