Importance to seeking knowledge in Islam
The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said:" He for whom Allah willing good, facilitates the learning of religion "[Al-Bukhaari].
The Hafiz and linguist Muhammad Mourtada Az-Zabeedi in said: "Listening to profitable science for his religion, for his life here and his hereafter, rewards more than to perform supererogatory prayers. "
Indeed, it was reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Assisting in an assembly of the science of religion is better that accomplishes one thousand rakaa of overnight prayers."
Thus, the science of religion allows knowing what Allah has ordained and what was forbidden and obligatory. Every responsible person has to learn about the belief, the purification, the prayer, the pilgrimage , etc.
The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "Seeking the science of religion is an obligation for every Muslim" [Al-Bayhaqi].
