The Importance of Seeking Knowledge

October 23, 2007

Shaykh ul-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah) said, “Seek knowledge, because,”

  • Seeking it for the sake of Allah is worship.
  • And knowing it makes you more God-fearing.
  • Searching for it is jihad.
  • Teaching it to those who do not know is charity. 
  • Reviewing and learning it more is like tasbeeh.
  • Through knowledge Allah will be known and worshipped.
  • With knowledge Allah will elevate people and make them leaders and imams, who will in turn guide other people.

[Fatawa Ibn Taymiyyah, Vol. 10, p. 39]
