salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. This is your sister Felicia Bennett from developing diamonds coming to you on behalf of Academy alive. When we are busy in our different pursuits in life, particularly this pursuit of Islamic knowledge, sometimes it can become tedious, tiring and exhausting. Going to that weekly clause doing that same homework. Personally, we had a very long drawn out, or an Tajweed course, which ultimately took us six, seven years to complete because it was just a few hours each week on an ongoing basis, it's very easy to feel like it's taking too long a can't be bothered or I'm tired of going to these cloths or it can become tedious. And that happens
if we don't have a greater vision of that journey of us embarking on the path towards knowledge if we don't realize the blessings that come with it, and some of the amazing aroma and tranquility mercy from Allah subhanaw taala that comes along with being a student or a seeker of knowledge, and it's very easy to lose sight and lose motivation. So I wanted to remind you of the mercy that envelops those who are seeking knowledge you know, mercy envelops the gatherings the classes, the groups are the individuals who seek knowledge also tranquility descends upon them and angels surround them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the angels lower their wings in their
great pleasure for the one who seeks knowledge. So like the angels are lowering their wings out of like respect, like respect, you are someone who is seeking knowledge and the most pure of creation, the angels are showing you respect because you are a seeker a student of knowledge upon Allah, even LTM Rahim Allah also said, If getting closer to the Lord of the worlds, and joining the world of the higher group of angels were the only virtues of knowledge. This is one of the amazing virtues of knowledge, you're with the higher group of angels, this is your status. This alone would be enough merit and honor that is enough honor to know that you just being a student of knowledge, even though
it's hard sometimes, even though you lose motivation, you feel lazy, sometimes, you sticking to that being committed to that you are now honored, along with the higher levels, the higher groups of angels, that's enough merit and honor within within and of itself, but knowledge also has other virtues. panela and for no one can gain glory in this world and the hereafter without it. The only glory that we can gain in this life and in the next life, it is only through knowledge, there are so many virtues of knowledge and let us be thirsty for it. Let us be eager for it, let us be motivated for it and never stop our whole lives. And let's try to keep in the forefront of our minds that this
is the type of status and honor that we want with Allah subhanaw taala we don't want to play average. We don't want to play small, we want to be of the most honorable of creation of the human beings of our, you know, communities of societies of our species and race as mankind because we are those who seek knowledge
