1st Revelation


For this lesson we concentrate only on the:

The very 1st Command of ALLAH

One really needs to contemplate why Allah chose this word to be the first word of Divine revelation ? It is actually a VERY IMPORATNT COMMAND to always seek and pursue knowledge, cause not doing so causes stagnation and downfall.

This can be further illustrated by the following points:
  • The life of Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho alaihi wasallam's life was spent teaching and spreading Allah's message
  • The Shabah's looked up to each other and respected the more on the basis of their understanding of the Quran, sunnah and the deen. 
  • We are expected to follow the example of the people of knowledge from the Sahabah, the Ta'abi'een and Ta'aba ta'baeen based on their exemplary and profound understanding in the matters of the deen.
  • Cordoba, Isfanah, Kufa, Baghdada and so many other cities of the Muslim Empiure were considered as high seats of learning. Peopel would travel thousands of miles to be in company of men of knowledge of deen, fiqh, sciences (astronomy, botoany, engineering, mathematics etc )
  • When the Muslims ruled for almost a 1000 years, those years are considered as the golden age. The European Renaissance has it's roots in the knowledge the got from the works of the Muslim scholars and Scientists
  • We are expected to seek the company of the people of knowledge.
What gave all the above mentioned people an edge ........ their KNOWLEDGE which only comes by seeking it and learning which in turn comes by READING !

The knowledge from which no benefit is derived is like a treasure out of which nothing is spent in the cause of Allah. Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 108

Copywork : print or cursive

REFLECTION: imporatnce  is  not only of READing but also of reading what is Beneficial Inshallah
