ON SEEKING KNOWLEDGE

January 21, 2022

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
الحمد لله، والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله، وبعد:


AlHamdu lillah, all praises are due to Almighty Allah (SWT/سبحانه وتعالى), and may His peace and blessings be upon our noble Prophet Muhammad (SAW/صلى الله عليه وسلم).



الرَّحْمَنُ * عَلَّمَ الْقُرْآنَ * خَلَقَ الْإِنْسَانَ * عَلَّمَهُ الْبَيَانَ

The Most Merciful. Taught the Qur'an, Created man, [And] taught him eloquence. {al-Qur’an 55:1-4}



[Reflect on the order of ayahs 2 and 3, and the repetition of the word (علّم) “taught” in ayahs 2 and 4.]


Do you want (for yourself and your family) to:

  • Get to know Allah (SWT) and His Messenger (SAW) better and establish a firm bond with them (أولوا الألباب)?

  • Better comprehend the teachings of the Qur’an and Sunnah, and fully implement Islamic values in your daily lives (الفقه في الدين)?

  • Fulfill your personal obligation (فريضة) and engage in the best of voluntary deeds (أفضل القربات)?

  • Appreciate the purpose of our existence, give life and light to our hearts and become a strong and enlightened community (على بصيرة)?

  • Be among those who are truly in awe and reverence to Allah (يخشى الله)?

  • Be close to Allah and honored (فضل العالم) and raised to high levels in this world and the hereafter (يرفعهم درجات)?

  • Stand in the shoes of all the Prophets of Allah and continue their mission (ورقة الأنبياء)?

  • Be blessed with an abundance of Goodness (من يرد الله به خيراً) in this world and the next?

  • Follow an easy path to Paradise (طريق إلى الجنة)?

  • Be constantly protected by the Angels (إن الملائكة لتضع أجنحتها)?

  • Have all of Allah’s creation make duaa for you and seek forgiveness for your sins (يستغفر له), and that includes all the fish in the oceans, seas, rivers, lakes, etc. (حتى الحيتان في الماء)?

  • Obey the very first command of Allah (SWT) to read, understand and proclaim (اقرأ)?



You can have all the above rewards (as mentioned in the Qur’an and Hadith) and more by seeking knowledge and being better informed about the teachings of Islam.



Please join us at the masjid for all programs, Salah, KhuTbahs (sermons), discussions, khaTirahs (reminders), duroos (lessons), Halaqahs (study circles).



Families, sisters, and kids and youth in particular, are welcome. You are all invited to the House of Allah SWT. Please accept His invitation.



May Allah bless us and shower His Grace upon us. We seek His guidance and His pleasure.



وجزاكم الله خيراً. والسلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
