a natural way of life that is to submit one Almighty God. Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

Dear brothers and sisters,

00:04:12--> 00:04:43

after accepting Islam, it is essential that the person be on it. As Allah Almighty says In surah facilite surah number 41 is number 30 in the levina palu or boonah law, those who have said Allah is our rub. Allah is our Lord. So Mr. Gorman and then being on it, be steadfast on it, we form on it.

And you cannot be formed on Islam unless and until you learn essentially, the Pillars of Islam and pillars of a man.

00:05:43--> 00:06:03

In this session Alhamdulillah we have three new Muslim brothers who are from different backgrounds and nationalities. One brother is from Philippine, the other one is from Uganda. And the third one hamdulillah is from India. So we will dedicate this session of ours

00:06:04--> 00:06:15

in taking questions pertaining to knowledge. So we may have the first question from you, brother regarding knowledge. Salaam Alaikum. Brother,

00:06:16--> 00:06:46

Allah, what is the importance of knowledge in Islam? handler? This is an very important question, what is the importance of knowledge? You see, there is one thing without which we will be in darkness, there is one thing without which we will have no fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala there is one thing without which there is no obedience of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. And there is one thing my brothers

00:06:47--> 00:07:17

that we need to realize that without which we cannot find the right path. And that is knowledge. Knowledge is that important? Because knowledge, it helps you to distinguish right from wrong. It helps you to bring the person from darkness to light. Knowledge empowers your Eman. It helps you in order to live the life as per developer must panel data.

00:07:18--> 00:07:42

As far as the importance of knowledge in Islam is concerned. Islam is a religion of knowledge. You see, Islamic faith, it demands knowledge before action, which means that you need to learn before you act. Knowledge is that important. And hamdulillah. If we see

00:07:43--> 00:08:10

the importance of knowledge in Islam, we can see the first revelation that came to Muhammad peace be upon him, it's concerning what knowledge, a lot of mighty, he says in the Quran. In surah, Allah surah number 96 is number one, Allah subhanaw taala says it Pura Bismillah bacon Lily had read, listen,

00:08:11--> 00:09:07

learn, recite in the name of your Lord who create. So the first revelation itself is concerning what knowledge that itself shows how important the knowledge is in Islam. Also, if you see the hadith of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, he said, seeking knowledge, seeking knowledge is compulsory upon every Muslim, male and female. So there is no excuse there is no escape of not gaining knowledge in Islam. That's how important knowledge is there in the house of Islam. Furthermore, if you see and realize that a person who has knowledge, they really fear they really have that consciousness of us panels Allah, Allah Almighty says in Surah Fateha surah number 35 is number 28. Allah Subhana Allah

00:09:07--> 00:09:36

says in Nehemiah shala millinery by the hill or Lama, indeed, those people who have knowledge of Allah, the fear of law, they are more conscious of Allah, they love Allah. Let's understand this is this is a beautiful art concerning knowledge. If you would like to know our last panel dialogue and lower last panel dialogue, have consciousness of Allah subhanaw taala What do you have to do? You have to get knowledge.

00:09:37--> 00:10:00

A person when he gains knowledge, it's only then he will realize he will have the consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So therefore, knowledge is really really important in the house of Islam. But we need to realize one very important thing and that is the knowledge that we gain the knowledge that

00:10:00--> 00:10:54

Gain, it must be the golden rule is it must be authentic. It must be beneficial. It must not be a knowledge to gain for a part of information and knowledge it should be beneficial. And that same time it should be authentic. That's a golden rule of seeking knowledge. Because Allah subhanaw taala he says in the Quran, in Surah, Yusuf surah number 12 and number 108, Allah subhanaw taala says, would say to them, how do he Sabine This is my way the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he meant to say, all say to them hardy Sabine or the RO Illallah. I call people to Allah panels Allah, Allah wa sera with certain knowledge with insightful knowledge. So you need to make sure when you

00:10:54--> 00:11:10

understand the importance of knowledge, you need to make sure that you should gain the knowledge which is authentic and certain, according to the teachings of the Quran, and the authentic fitna of Prophet Muhammad. Peace and blessings be upon him. Hope that answers your question.
