One Step Closer - Knowledge
1- A stairway to excellence, and one of the most precious things that we can ever have, because it brings us closer to Allah and makes us feel the sweetness of paradise one earth.
2- Knowledge about Allah, His prophet, Islam, Qur’an is the knowledge Allah refers to, not the modern sciences, the beneficial knowledge is the first one, the other ones are beneficial somehow but there is no comparability between them and the knowledge of Allah that can illuminate the heart, it gives you life and light.
3- Knowledge has a very high status is Islam, it is the basis of every action we do, without it action will never be right because the one who acts without knowledge has a destructive disease that is ignorance so the mischief that he will bring about will be far greater than the goodness that he is trying to bring about.
4- Knowledge of Allah is praised by Allah because it is the foundation upon which everything is built, it comes before speech and action, it is very central in our life because knowing Allah is the purpose for which we were created.
5- Thirst for knowledge shows in those who are deprived from the knowledge of Allah, they might have other knowledge but they have heart emptiness, and they are looking for happiness, so once they know the knowledge of Allah and act upon it, Allah will open for them new fields of spiritual knowledge.
