Motivate Yourself to Seek Islamic Knowledge
💻 The internet today is playing a vital role in the revival of Islamic scholarship in the recent times. The new generation of Muslims around the world are utilising the power of Internet to access authentic Islamic knowledge through blogs, articles, lectures and videos.
⌨️ Internet is a blessing that has never been given to any Muslim ever in human history. Now us Muslims can read the Quran and Hadith with citations through smartphones in our hands.
🔎 Now we can search different Ayah of the Quran or a Hadith according to the topic or using different search phrases. Imagine how excited Imam Bukhari would be to get his hands on such technology.
⏳It takes a lot of willpower to teach yourself about the teachings of Islam. And to get the willpower to teach ourselves about the teachings of Islam, we should ask ourselves few questions such as, why should I seek Islamic knowledge? What will I get out of it? How this Islamic knowledge is going to help me become a better Muslim in this world and the hereafter?
💎 Let us look at some of the things the Prophet (SAW) told us regarding this.
📚The Blessings of Seeking Knowledge“And among people and moving creatures and grazing livestock are various colors similarly. Only those fear Allah, from among His servants, who have knowledge. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Forgiving.” (Quran, 35:28)He also said: “Whoever takes a path upon which to obtain knowledge, Allah makes the path to Paradise easy for him.” (Tirmidhi 2646)“When Allah wishes good for someone, He bestows upon him the understanding of Deen.” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim, qt in Riyad al-Salihin Book 13, Hadith 1)
📚🔎Remember that seeking knowledge is an act of worship. And so for any seeker of knowledge, your intentions need to be sincere for the sake of Allah. May Allah SWT shower his knowledge and wisdom upon us and guide us to the right path, Insha’Allah!
