SEEK KNOWLEDGE (DEEN)
The Heirs of the Ambiyaa
Hadhrat Abu Huraira رضي الله عنه reports that Rasulullah ﷺ said:
“The one who treads a path seeking the knowledge of Deen, Allah Ta’ala makes his path towards Jannah easy. The angels spread out their wings under the feet of the one seeking the knowledge of Deen in expression of happiness for the path he has adopted. And all the creation in the heavens and the earth until the fish in the ocean seek forgiveness on behalf of an Aalim; and the virtue of an Aalim over an Aabid is like the superiority of the moon over all the other stars.
And certainly the Ulama are the heirs of the Ambiyaa. The Ambiyaa did not leave behind Dinaars and Dirhams (in their legacy), rather they left behind the knowledge of Deen. Whoever has acquired it, really he has acquired a great share (of Allah’s bounties).
The Most Virtuous Ibaadah
Hazrat Abdullah bin Umar (radhiyAllahu anhuma) reports that Rasulullah ﷺ said:
“The most virtuous ibaadah (form of worship) in Deen is acquiring the correct understanding of Deen, and the most virtuous deed in Deen is one exercising abstinence from anything undesirable, doubtful or haraam.”
Rasulullah ﷺ has mentioned:
“Whoever takes a path seeking knowledge therein, Allah Ta’ala will make it easy for him, a path to jannah. The angels, out of happiness will place down their wings for the seeker of Knowledge.”
This is a sign that the person is accepted in the eyes of Allah because angels are sinless and are special servants of Allah. To be accepted by the angels is like being accepted by Allah.
May Allah Grant us the sound understanding of Deen. Aameen
