Seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave

Peace be upon you dear friends :D

Confucius, the Chinese philosopher said: "Ignorance is the night of the mind, but a night without moon or star."

if ignorance is night, then knowledge is light! Islam stands against ignorance and encourages muslims to learn as long as they live. learning in Islam is a duty on every muslim, man and woman. and it's considered one kind of worship: the muslim is rewarded by God for all his/her effort to learn and to teach others.

The prophet Mohammed -peace be upon him- encouraged his followers and all muslims to learn. learn to know themselves. and learn to know God. and learn to succeed in this life and the hereafter.
among his sayings:

"An hour's contemplation is better than a year's adoration"

"To spend more time in learning is better than spending more time praying; the support of religion is abstinence. It is better to teach knowledge one hour in the night than to pray all night."

"Whoever seeks knowledge and finds it, will get two rewards; one of them the reward for desiring it, and the other for attaining it; therefore, even if he does not attain it, for him is one reward."

"He who knows his own self, knows God."

"The ink of the scholar is more holy than the blood of the martyr"

"Learn to know yourself."

"Who are the learned? They who practice what they know."

An ancient Arabic proverb says: "Seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave." So, dear brothers and sisters, as you can see. knowledge is light and ignorance is darkness. so let's stay in the light and learn at least one new thing per day.
