Read, in the Name of Your Lord
Knowledge is an integral part of Islam. In one example, Allah tells us in Surat AzZumar, verse 9:
(هَلْ يَسْتَوِي الَّذِينَ يَعْلَمُونَ وَالَّذِينَ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ)
. . . are those who know equal to those who do not know?
And everyone is familiar with the first word of revelation in Surat Al-Alaq, verse 1:
(اقْرَأْ بِاسْمِ رَبِّكَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ)
Read, in the Name of your Lord who created.
Also, the Prophet (sallah o alaihi wassalam) told us: Whoever treads a path seeking knowledge, Allah will make easy for him the path to Paradise. [Part of a sahih hadith reported by Ibn Majah and others, fulfilling the conditions of Imam al Bukhari and Imam Muslim]
Seek Beneficial Knowledge
For Muslims it’s not just important to have knowledge; traversing the path to acquire knowledge is in itself highly regarded in Islam. Muslims are encouraged to seek knowledge in all areas as long as it is beneficial knowledge.
We’re taught to say in our supplications, Allah teach me what is beneficial to me and benefit me by what you have taught me and increase my knowledge. Ameen.
