Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
وَقُل رَّبِّ زِدْنِي عِلْمًا
(Qur’ān 20:114). ‘Wa Qul Rabbi Zidni ‘Ilman’, ‘And say, “My Lord, increase me in knowledge.”.’ Ṣadaqa Llāhu l-‘Aẓīm. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla says in Qur’an ‘Azimu sh-Shan, “Say, May we be given knowledge.” It is also a Dua. The more knowledge you acquire insha’Allah, the more you are accepted in the presence of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. That is about good knowledge. There are various kinds of knowledge that we acquire. Knowledge that teaches about knowing Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is the one. It is the knowledge that raises people, exalts them and gives them benefit.
Knowledge has no end. Even though you say you’ve learnt a lot and know everything, that is wrong. As long as you are alive, you learn new things until your last breath. This knowledge has no end, because Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla enlightens people with knowledge and shows people the way.
Allah ﷻ gave mind to mankind and Jinns among other creatures. And He ﷻ made things Fard for them that they must do using their minds. Those without mind are not Mukallāf (responsible) for anything. Mukallāf are people and Jinns. They must perform worship and walk on the way of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla upon His ﷻ order. What they need while they walk is knowledge. It cannot be without knowledge.
When Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla created humans, as soon as the baby is born, he starts learning. That is knowledge too. Everything is knowledge for him. Slowly slowly, he learns either good things or bad things. Bad things are not knowledge but ignorance. Insha’Allah may we be taught true knowledge. May we be taught useful knowledge.
There are some people who have learnt in vain after studying for years and decades while thinking they learnt something. Whereas what they learnt is not useful but harmful. Therefore, we don’t want that. We don’t ask for ignorance, we ask for knowledge from Allah ﷻ. May Allah ﷻ teach us knowledge that brings light to our hearts insha’Allah.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
