When someone doesn’t have knowledge, anybody can fools him and directs him to something wrong and he doesn’t consider it.
Also, if someone doesn’t have knowledge of Islam, anybody can fools him and guide him to the wrong path and wrong perception.
A wise word says: “When you do not have knowledge, someone will bring you dirt and you will believe it’s gold”.
That’s why the Prophet ﷺ said:
مَن سلَك طريقًا يطلُبُ فيه عِلْمًا، سلَك اللهُ به طريقًا مِن طُرُقِ الجَنَّةِ
“Whoever takes a path upon which to obtain knowledge (of Islam), Allah makes the path to Paradise easy for him” [Tirmidhi, Abu Daud. Al Albani says that this hadith is saheeh].
The Prophet ﷺ also said:
طَلَبُ الْعِلْمِ فَرِيضَةٌ عَلَى كُلِّ مُسْلِمٍ
“Seeking knowledge (of Islam) is a duty on every Muslim” [Ibn Majah, classed as hasan in Sahih Ibn Majah by al-Albani].
