The greatest knowledge

Knowing about Allah  is the best knowledge

Knowledge about Allah is the origin and basis of every other type of knowledge. By knowing Him, all the other types will be known.

It is equally important to be educated in any field of sciences such as arts, physics, chemistry, math, medicine, physiology but this kind of knowledge has something to do with the creation and beneficial in this life only. The highest form of knowledge is the knowledge of the religion… about our Creator, His Essence, His Beautiful Names, His Perfect Attributes, His Divine Acts, the laws, prohibitions, etc.

The path to this knowledge is through studying the holy Qur’an and the Sunnah. The Prophet ﷺ said: “Seeking knowledge is obligatory upon every Muslim man and every Muslim woman.” [Ibn Majah]

Islam stresses the importance of knowledge and how it makes a difference in people’s lives. Allah ﷻ says: “Are they equal, those who know and those who know not?” [Fussilat 41:9]

If you really know Him, you will surely love Him!
