Ignorance - a spiritual malady P8
Knowledge enables a person to deal with the various situations faced in life in the best possible manner with the most favourable outcome. Nabi-e-Kareem ? said referring to knowledge that a person will never be satisfied with listening to such ‘goodness’ until he enters his abode in Jannah. The true appetite of a Mu’min is thus not for things of this world, but rather for knowledge, words of wisdom and benefit, which will give him inner satisfaction. The gems of the Ahlullah, Ulama, Mashaaikh etc. when gathered are such a treasure which the precious stones of the world can never equal, therefore we should make it a passion to collect and save these advices. By reading these statements over and over again, reflecting and pondering upon them, the messages get ‘downloaded’ into the heart and will benefit a person at the time of need. Statements of the Auliya Allah, uttered in a moment of great sincerity and connection with Allah SWT, have a great impact on the heart, and has changed the lives of people. The time spent in the acquisition of knowledge has tremendous rewards and returns. Nabi-e-Kareem ? mentioned that the person who goes to the Masjid with the sole purpose of learning or teaching ‘good’ (referring to knowledge) will attain a reward similar to a person who has proceeded for and completed Hajj! Acquisition of knowledge eventually becomes the means of correct beliefs, practice and conduct. The desire for learning must always be burning in our hearts, and we must make a concerted effort to materialize this desire into reality.
