Education

[Verily] All praise is for Allah, we seek His help and His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allah from the evil of our own souls [and from our bad deeds]. Whomsoever Allah guides no one can misguide and whomsoever Allah misguides no one can guide. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad ﷺ is His slave and Messenger.

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ ٱتَّقُواْ ٱللَّهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِۦ وَلَا تَمُوتُنَّ إِلَّا وَأَنتُم مُّسۡلِمُونَ

O you who believe! Fear Allah as He should be feared, and die not except in a state of Islam (as Muslims) with complete submission to Allah. Qur'an [3:102]

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلنَّاسُ ٱتَّقُواْ رَبَّكُمُ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَكُم مِّن نَّفۡسٍ۬ وَٲحِدَةٍ۬ وَخَلَقَ مِنۡہَا زَوۡجَهَا وَبَثَّ مِنۡہُمَا رِجَالاً۬ كَثِيرً۬ا وَنِسَآءً۬‌ۚ وَٱتَّقُواْ ٱللَّهَ ٱلَّذِى تَسَآءَلُونَ بِهِۦ وَٱلۡأَرۡحَامَ‌ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ عَلَيۡكُمۡ رَقِيبً۬ا

O mankind! Be dutiful to your Lord, Who created you from a single person, and from him He created his wife, and from them both He created many men and women, and fear Allah through Whom you demand your mutual (rights), and (do not cut the relations of) the wombs (kinship) Surely, Allah is Ever an All-Watcher over you. Qur'an [4:1]

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ ٱتَّقُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَقُولُواْ قَوۡلاً۬ سَدِيدً۬ا (٧٠) يُصۡلِحۡ لَكُمۡ أَعۡمَـٰلَكُمۡ وَيَغۡفِرۡ لَكُمۡ ذُنُوبَكُمۡۗ وَمَن يُطِعِ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ ۥ فَقَدۡ فَازَ فَوۡزًا عَظِيمًا

O you who believe! Keep your duty to Allah and fear Him, and speak (always) the truth). He will direct you to do righteous good deeds and will forgive you your sins. And whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger ﷺ he has indeed achieved a great achievement (i.e. he will be saved from the Hell-fire and made to enter Paradise. Qur'an [33:70-71]

Education in Qur'an and Sunnah

In brief, education in Islam is important for all Muslims, why is it important? Because as Muslims we should know our religion and know about Allah Swt and how to worship Allah more, in the correct way. When you have more knowledge you can worship Allah Swt by this knowledge and practice it correctly, as a result you will receive more reward and increase your ibaadat, worship.

If you want to know knowledge you need to put effort and follow this rule: First is ‘ilm, knowledge, second is ‘amal , practice, third is da’wah, inviting to Islam and forth is sabr on the ‘ilm, patience in Islam, therefore those people who are thirsty for knowledge are always hungry for more knowledge.

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported

The Messenger of Allah said, "He who goes forth in search of knowledge is considered as struggling in the Cause of Allah until he returns." [At- Tirmidhi]

Allah Swt mentions ‘ilm, knowledge in many places in the Qur’an

ٱقۡرَأۡ بِٱسۡمِ رَبِّكَ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ (١) خَلَقَ ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنَ مِنۡ عَلَقٍ (٢) ٱقۡرَأۡ وَرَبُّكَ ٱلۡأَكۡرَمُ (٣) ٱلَّذِى عَلَّمَ بِٱلۡقَلَمِ (٤)عَلَّمَ ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنَ مَا لَمۡ يَعۡلَمۡ (٥)

Read! In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists), (1) He has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood) (2) Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who has taught (the writing) by the pen. (4) He has taught man that which he knew not. Qur'an [96: 1-5]

شَهِدَ ٱللَّهُ أَنَّهُ ۥ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ وَٱلۡمَلَـٰٓٮِٕكَةُ وَأُوْلُواْ ٱلۡعِلۡمِ قَآٮِٕمَۢا بِٱلۡقِسۡطِ‌ۚ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ٱلۡعَزِيزُ ٱلۡحَڪِيمُ (١٨)

Allah witnesses that there is no deity except Him, and [so do] the angels and those of knowledge - [that He is] maintaining [creation] in justice. There is no deity except Him, the Exalted in Might, the Wise. Qur'an [3:18]

قُلۡ هَلۡ يَسۡتَوِى ٱلَّذِينَ يَعۡلَمُونَ وَٱلَّذِينَ لَا يَعۡلَمُونَ‌

Say: "Are those who know equal to those who know not?" Qur'an [39:9]

وَقُل رَّبِّ زِدۡنِى عِلۡمً۬ا

And say: "My Lord! Increase me in knowledge." Qur'an [20:114]

يَرۡفَعِ ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ مِنكُمۡ وَٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡعِلۡمَ دَرَجَـٰتٍ۬‌

Allah will exalt in degree those of you who believe, and those who have been granted knowledge. Quran [58:11]

إِنَّمَا يَخۡشَى ٱللَّهَ مِنۡ عِبَادِهِ ٱلۡعُلَمَـٰٓؤُاْۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَزِيزٌ غَفُورٌ (٢٨)

It is only those who have knowledge among His slaves that fear Allah. Verily, Allah is All Mighty, Oft Forgiving. Quran [35:28]

قَالُواْ سُبۡحَـٰنَكَ لَا عِلۡمَ لَنَآ إِلَّا مَا عَلَّمۡتَنَآ‌ۖ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ ٱلۡعَلِيمُ ٱلۡحَكِيمُ (٣٢)

They (angels) said: "Glory be to You, we have no knowledge except what you have taught us. Verily, it is You, the All-Knower, the All-Wise." Qur'an [2: 32]

فَٱعۡلَمۡ أَنَّهُ ۥ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا (١٩)

So know (O Muhammad) that Lâ ilâha ill-allâh (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah) Qur'an [47:19]

وَٱتَّقُواْ ٱللَّهَ‌ۖ وَيُعَلِّمُڪُمُ ٱللَّهُ‌ۗ

And fear Allah. And Allah teaches you. Qur'an [2:282]

Prophet Muhammad said: "Seeking Knowledge is obligatory upon every Muslim." (Related by Ibn 'Adiyy, Al-Bayhaqi & Al-Tabarani)

1381. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah said, “Allah makes the way to Jannah easy for him who treads the path in search of knowledge.” [Muslim]

O Allah! I ask You for knowledge that is of benefit, a good provision and deeds that will be accepted. [Ibn Majah and others]

“O Allah , I seek refuge in You from knowledge which does not benefit, from a heart that has no fear, from a soul that is never content, and from an invocation (da’wah) that is not responded to.” [Muslim 2722]

We ask Allah Swt to increase us in Eman and His knowledge and guide us to follow the Qur’an and Sunnah correctly. Oh Allah help us to do good work in dunya and grant us all Jannat Al Firdous al ‘Ala. Allah knows Best

Walakhira dawana alhamdulillahi rabil alamen

And the last of their call will be, "Praise to Allah, Lord of the worlds!"
