Importance of education in Islam is immense. Islam must know about Islam before practicing religion. What is Islam? Why is Islam? The first word of the Qur’an is ‘Iqra’ means ‘Read’. Understand by this word `Read’ importance of education in Islam. I will discuss the importance of education in Islam only in the light of The Holy Quran and Hadith (InshaALLAH).
ALLAH says: “Say, `Are the blind equal with those who see? Or the depths of darkness equal with light? (Mujadala: 11)”
ALLAH also says: “Those of you who believe and who have been granted knowledge, ALLAH will increase their dignity. (Ra`d: 16)”
ALLAH`s Messenger (Sa.) said: “Seeking knowledge is a duty upon every Muslim. (Sunnane Ibne Majah: 224)”
Understand by this Hadith very importance of education in Islam.
ALLAH`s Messenger (Sa.) also said: “whoever follows a path in the pursuit of knowledge, ALLAH will make easy for him a path to paradise. The angels lower their wins approval of the seeker of knowledge, and everyone in the heavens and on earth prays for forgiveness for the seeker of knowledge, even the fish in the sea. The superiority of the scholar over the worshipper is like the superiority of the moon above all other heavenly bodies. The scholars are the heirs of the Prophets, for the Prophets did not leave behind a Dinar or Dirham, rather they left behind knowledge, so whoever takes it has taken a great share. (Sunnane Ibne Majah: 223)”
Narrated Munabiya: I heard The Messenger of ALLAH (Sa.) Saying, “If ALLAH wants to do good to a person, He makes him comprehend the religion.
No place for Ignorance in Islam. Islam teaches Message of Peace. Islam inspire our gain to knowledge both Dunia (Earth) and Akhirat (Paradise). So We should every Muslim gain to knowledge both Dunia (Earth) and Akhirat (Paradise) in the light of Quran and Hadith.
