Seeking Knowledge is Path to the Paradise

Let us seek beneficial ‘ilm or knowledge diligently! May Allah grant us a place in His Paradise! Aameen.

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:

وَمَنْ سَلَكَ طَرِيقًا يَلْتَمِسُ فِيهِ عِلْمًا سَهَّلَ اللَّهُ لَهُ بِهِ طَرِيقًا إلَى الْجَنَّةِ، وَمَا اجْتَمَعَ قَوْمٌ فِي بَيْتٍ مِنْ بُيُوتِ اللَّهِ يَتْلُونَ كِتَابَ اللَّهِ، وَيَتَدَارَسُونَهُ فِيمَا بَيْنَهُمْ؛ إلَّا نَزَلَتْ عَلَيْهِمْ السَّكِينَةُ، وَغَشِيَتْهُمْ الرَّحْمَةُ، وَ حَفَّتهُمُ المَلاَئِكَة، وَذَكَرَهُمْ اللَّهُ فِيمَنْ عِنْدَهُ، وَمَنْ أَبَطْأَ بِهِ عَمَلُهُ لَمْ يُسْرِعْ بِهِ نَسَبُهُ

❝And whoever follows a path to seek knowledge therein. Allah will make easy for him a path to Paradise. And, every people who gather together in one of the Houses of Allah. Reciting the Book of Allah and studying it among themselves. Sakeenah (tranquility) will descends upon them. And mercy envelops them. The angels surround them. Allah will mentions them amongst those who are with Him. And whoever is slowed down by his actions, will not be hastened forward by his lineage❞

[Muslim 2699, Arbain Nawawiy].

The more you have knowledge, the more you know what’s good, then you do it. And what’s bad, then you stay away from it. That’s why seeking knowledge is path to Jannah.
