Islamic Concept of Knowledge 

Allah Paak Jalla Shanahu says in surah Alaq 96, verse: 1-5

“(O Beloved!) Read (commencing) with the name of Allah Who has created (everything); He created man from a mass suspended like a leech (in the mother’s womb). Read and your Lord is Most Generous; He Who taught man (reading and writing) by the pen. He Who (besides that) taught man (all that) which he did not know.”

Today I will talk about the Islamic Concept of Knowledge.

The verses, I recited earlier were the first revelation received by the Beloved Prophet Sallallahu Alaiyhi Wasallam in the cave of Hira. The first message conveyed by Hazrat Gabriel Alaiyhi Salaam was to read. You can understand the importance of getting knowledge from this incidence. After this Revelation, what our beloved Prophet did for 23 years. He spread knowledge of the Holy Qur’an to the whole mankind.

There are two methods of getting knowledge:

  1. Knowledge which is acquired from other human beings.
  2. Knowledge which is gifted by Allah (subhana’ wa’ta’ala). This is the knowledge which is revealed by Allah (subhana’wa’ta’ala) through His Prophets (Alaiyhimus salaam).

The beloved Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) did not attend any school or college. The source of His knowledge was Allah (subhana’wa’ta’ala).

After the creation of Hazrat Adam Alaiyhi Salaam, Allah Ta’ala taught him the names of all things. This has been mentioned in the Surah al-Baqarah 2, verse: 31

“And He taught Adam all the names (of everything).”

Because of this knowledge, Hazrat Adam Alaiyhi Salaam got superiority over all other creations including angels and jinns. It was essential for him to possess this knowledge as he was created as the Khalifa (Vicegerent) of Allah ta’ala on earth.
The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said:
“Seek for knowledge even (you have to go) to China. Getting knowledge is obligatory for every Muslim (man & woman).”
(Ibn Rajab Hambali, Jami’ bayan-il-ilm wa fadlihi)

In the Holy Qur’an, knowledge has been described as Nur (light) and Basirah (insight) whereas ignorance is referred to as Zulumat (darkness).

Knowledge does not mean only the Islamic knowledge. It encompasses the scientific knowledge too. The modern scientific knowledge is helping us to know more about the religion. The scientists are saying same things which are mentioned about 1400 years ago in the Holy Qur’an. You should get the scientific knowledge to understand the things mentioned in the Holy Qur’an. The knowledge which does not guide you to the right path is not the real knowledge according to Islamic concept of knowledge. Abu Jahl was not illiterate but he is known as Abu Jahl (father of ignorance) because his knowledge did not help him to find the right path and recognize and accept Aaqa Kareem (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) as the last Prophet of Allah (Subhana’Wa’Ta’ala).

There is one major difference between Islamic and worldly knowledge. The worldly knowledge brings pride and arrogance in a person but the true Islamic spiritual knowledge brings humbleness and modesty in a person.

One remains a student throughout his life. A person, who thinks, he knows everything, is ignorant. Knowledge is an endless ocean of information. A person who dies while seeking for knowledge is a martyr.

The total extend of knowledge acquired by human beings is just a small portion of that which Aaqa Kareem (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) possesses.

There are some guidelines for seeking Islamic Knowledge:

First of all, you need to turn to Allah (Subhana’Wa’Ta’ala). Bear-witness that He knows all, and seek assistance from Him.

 "And say: O Lord, increase me in knowledge" [Taa Haa 20:114]

Secondly, have Taqwah-Fear Allah (subhana’wa’ta’ala).
Allah (subhana’wa’ta’ala) says in the Holy Qur'an: "It is only those who have knowledge among his slaves that fear Allah." [Surah Faatir 35:28]

If you fear Allah (subhana’wa’ta’ala) you will try to gain knowledge, as it was prescribed to us to do so in many ahadith and verses in the Qur'an. If you fear Allah (subhana’wa’ta’ala), you will only acquire true and useful knowledge.

Thirdly, do not be shy or arrogant in acquiring knowledge.

Hazrat Ayesha (R.A.) said:
"How excellent are the women of the Ansaar, shyness/modesty does not prevent them from understanding the religion."
(Bukhari)

When you are shy or arrogant, you don't acquire knowledge because you have too much pride and feel as if you know 'enough'.

Finally, act upon the knowledge you learn
Our Beloved Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said:

"A servant’s two feet will not move on the Day of Judgement until he is questioned about four (things): His

youth, how he spent it, his knowledge, how he acted upon it, his wealth, how he earned it and how he spent it and his body, how he used/wasted it."
(al-Tirmidhi)

Hazrat Anas Ibn Maalik (R.A.) reported that our Beloved Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said:

“Seeking knowledge is incumbent on every Muslim; he who offers knowledge to those who do not appreciate it, is like the one who decorates pigs with precious stones, pearls and gold.”
(Ibne Majah)

Hazrat Hudhaifah Ibn al-Yaman (R.A.) narrated that our Beloved Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said:

“The excess of Ilm is better than the excess of Ibadah (worship), and the best of your religion is the wara’ (piety, self restrain).”
 (Al-Tabarani, Al-Awsat; Al-Bazzar)

Hazrat Anas (R.A.) narrated that the Beloved Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said:
 
“Make things easy! And do not make them complicated! Be cheerful! And do not be repulsive.”
(Bukhari)

Hazrat Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud (R.A.) said, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said:

“Let there be no envy, except in two things:
A man whom Allah gave the wealth and guided him to spend it in righteous way. Or a man to whom Allah gave wisdom and he acts wisely and teaches it to others.”
(Al-Bukhari and Muslim; An-Nawawi, Riyad As-Salihin)

Hazrat Jabir Ibn ‘Abdullah (R.A.) narrated, I heard the the Beloved Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) saying:
 
“My Lord! I ask You for beneficial knowledge, and I seek refuge with You from non-beneficial knowledge.”
(Ibn Hibban, Sahih)

Hazrat Abu Dharr (R.A.) narrated, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said to me:

“O Abu Dharr! If you learn one verse from The Book of Allah (The Quran), it is better for you than to voluntarily pray one hundred rakats, and if you learn a category of knowledge (religion), regardless if it is applied or not, it is better for you than to voluntarily pray one thousand rakats.”
(Ibn Majah, Sunan; Ibn Hajar Al-‘Asqalani, Mukhtasar At-Targhib wa-t-Tarhib; Al-Ghazali, Ihya’ ‘Ulum Ad-Deen)

Hazrat Anas (R.A.) said, the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) said:

“He who leaves his home in order to seek knowledge, he is in Allah’s path until he returns [to his home].”
(At-Tirmidhi, Sunan, An-Nawawi, Riyad As-Salahin)

Hazrat Safwan Ibn ‘Assal (R.A.) said: I came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) while he was reclining on a red coat [in the mosque] and I said to him:

“O’ Messenger of Allah! I came to seek knowledge.
He said: Welcome knowledge seeker!
Indeed, the angles surround the knowledge seeker with their wings, then they pile on top of each other until they reach the lower heaven out of their love of what he is seeking.”
(Ahmad Ibn Hanbal; At-Tabarani; Ibn Hajar Al-‘Asqalani, Mukhtasar At-Targhib; Ibn Hajar Al-‘Asqalani, Al-Isabah fi Tamyziz As-Sahabah)

Muslims are far behind in the field of education. The Muslims should gain education which is necessary for earning as well as Islamic education to spend life in Islamic ways. The Muslims once ruled this world. How? You can judge from this example. S.P.Scott, speaking of the Muslims (Moors) of Islamic Spain, wrote: “At a time when even (Christian) kings could not read or write, a Moorish king had a private library of six hundred thousand books. At a time when ninety-nine percent of the Christian people were wholly illiterate, the Moorish city of Cordova had eight hundred public schools, and there was not a village within the limits of the empire where the blessings of education could not be enjoyed by the children of the most indigent peasant, and it was difficult to encounter even a Moorish peasant who could not read and write.

During the 7th and 8th centuries, Muslims scholars made significant advances in science, mathematics, medicine, astronomy, engineering and many other fields.

There was a time when people used to come to Islamic countries for education.

Get education. Become a doctor, engineer, solicitor, business man or what ever you wish to be but also get Islamic education to understand the purpose of your being here in this world. Only in this way, you will be successful in this world as well as in the hereafter.

May Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala grant us knowledge of Islam and help us to act upon the Islamic knowledge we already have.

  • May Allah Paak  enlighten our hearts with His Noor and grant us the ability to perform good deeds
  • May Allah Paak forgive our major and minor sins and protect us from the spiritual diseases like anger, jealousy, backbiting, pride and greed.
  • May Allah Paak protect us from the punishment of the grave & hellfire, and  enlighten our graves with His Noor
  • May Allah Paak mercy upon the entire Ummah.
