Seeking Islamic Knowledge

The Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “He who treads the path in search of (Islamic) knowledge, Allah will make easy for him a path to Paradise.”

[Sahih Muslim]


We benefit from this hadith the following:

  1. The virtue of Islamic knowledge.
  2. The virtue of travelling in order to gain knowledge.
  3. The hadith is evidence that seeking knowledge is a worship and the scholars mentioned that it is the greatest worship after the compulsory actions. Ibn Abaas (radi Allahu anhu) said “studying throughout the night is more beloved to me than praying the night.

And Allah Knows Best!
