When both parents are illiterate, children will not be literate.
Illiteracy will cover the whole family .
Lack of Islamic knowledge can cause Satan to conquer you. Satan the cursed one will always whisper in your ears and tell you that you are right.
When your children didn’t read Qur’an, you will not mind because you too you didn’t read it. When you
find there is no copy of Al-Qur’an in your room but you bought many
textbooks for your kids, you still won’t mind.
Your children don’t know how to pray well but you still think it’s not yet time
because they are still young. When there is a long time without remembering Allah in your home, you think it’s nothing, Subhanallah!
It’s the work of Satan and our fault too. When we neglect the Qur’an
and Sunnah we will not find peace in our hearts and Satan will be our friend.
Dear parent when you didn’t educate your children with Islamic knowledge, Allah will ask you about it. When you buy worldly things but you don’t have even a copy of the Qur’an, Allah will ask you where do you find your money and where do you spend it?
Did you teach your children the biography of our beloved Prophet (pbuh)?
Did you enroll your children in Islamic schools ?
Our forefathers, the Islamic scholars, studied without limits. They spent all their time studying and didn’t sleep enough, but here we are in an era where technology is widespread. Instead of joining online Islamic schools like IOU and seekershub.org, you spend your whole day chatting. You don’t even think of seeking Islamic knowledge.
You still ignore Islamic knowledge. You graduated from university; you studied many short courses; but you can’t explain the pillars of Islam . The Almighty Allah, He is the Lord the worlds *Rabbil
aalamin.* Your prayers and good deeds will not benefit Him. He is Sufficient, the Owner of everything. He needs nothing from you and your good deeds will benefit only you.
The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him said:
“If anyone travels on a road in search of knowledge, Allah will ease
the way to Paradise for him. The angels will lower their wings in
their great pleasure with one who seeks knowledge. The inhabitants of
the heavens and the earth and even the fish in the deep waters will
ask forgiveness for the learned man. The superiority of the knowledgeable
man over the worshipers in Islam is like the superiority of the full moon
over the rest of the planets. The scholars are the inheritors of
prophets. The prophets didn’t leave behind wealth; they left
behind knowledge, and whoever takes this knowledge takes a great fortune”
(Abu dawood , Ibn majah , Tirmithi).
Look at the superiority of those who seek knowledge and those who
refuse to seek knowledge. Every knowledge is important but Islamic
knowledge is the best for the Muslim ummah.
Whoever wishes for honor and glory in this life and the next, then such a
person should return to the Book of Allah.
The starting point of seeking knowledge is the Quran (including memorization
and perfection in recitation).
By memorizing and studying the Quran, a student of knowledge will
have patience and humility which will help him through his long path of
this is so beautiful
