Friday Message from the Mission Board
AS SALAAM ALEAKUM WARAHMOTULAHI WABARAKAATUHU BROTHERS AND SISTERS
Obligation of Seeking Knowledge.
Islam commands every Muslim, male or female, to seek knowledge especially the basics of the deen and anything else that is necessary for life. However, we must be weary of seeking knowledge for knowledge’s sake.
Allah (SWT) called the ‘books on donkeys’ as they used to study their religious scriptures but not act on them. We find in the Qur’an, whenever Allah (SWT) mentions Iman (faith) he also talks about action.
Indeed, faith alone will not be enough in the Day of Judgement when Allah (SWT) will ask every human being to give account of what they did or didn’t do.
May Allah preserve our lives and make it easy for us.
