The Purpose Of Acquiring Knowledge

The Purpose Of Acquiring Knowledge

” Congratulations On The Greatest Bounty It is Allāh’s great favour that He conferred us with attachment to knowledge, the desire to study and teach it, and enthusiasm for it. We all went to our respective homes in Sha‛bān. For about six weeks we moved away from the programme of the madrasah and spent our time with the freedom to do as we liked. There are many who, through Allāh’s inspiration, spent their holidays profitably. There are others whose holidays are spent in futile activities and sins, and in passing the time lazily. After spending six weeks away from the madrasah, Allāh ta‛ālā inspired you to come back. This is a great favour of Allāh ta‛ālā. Some people slip up during the holidays [and do not return to the madrasah]. Others slip up at the very beginning of the year. While yet others slip up in the middle of the year. Shaytān casts various types of whisperings such as the food in the madrasah is not good, the boarding is not good, the classmates are not friendly, the roommates are not good, the timetable is difficult, studies themselves are difficult, Arabic is difficult, there is no compatibility with the teachers, the madrasah is very far from home, my mother is alone at home, my father is alone, my brothers and sisters will fall into evil [in my absence], and so on. Shaytān creates various types of thoughts and some people fall as a result of these whisperings. ”
