Dars 1.

Reminder :
Ash-Shaykh Hasan ibn Abdul Wahhab Marzooq al-Banna said, A believer never gets bore from repeating/revising the
knowledge, specially Ahlus-Sunnah.And your heart should not be closed by repeating rather it should affirm and remind what
your learning.Indeed, for this reason Allaah says, Verily, Reminder benefits the believer.

Why we seek knowledge?

A: 1)Knowledge is a form of worship and any worship should be sought for the sake of Allaahs pleasure only.That is why
scholars said, Knowledge is a secret prayer and worship of heart.
Meaning: Knowledge is inside heart which you cannot see like prayer movement of body,but you can see the fruits of knowledge
when one acts upon it.
2)One Should seek knowledge for Allaah and not that people respect him.
Scholars say, One should not seek knowledge for gaining respect, neither for arguing with people of knowledge, one should
not seek to feel proud and feel more in rank than others, one should not seek for getting worldly benefit (like mufti, professor
etc. But, this all will come itself but it should not be sole purpose). The Scholars says, The more a person seeks knowledge,
more he realizes how ignorant he is and more he becomes humble.He understands and acknowledges it.
3)A person should be teaching carefully fearing as he is speaking about Allaah and His Messenger .
4)Haste first in learning and not in teaching others. For you will be asked on the day of Judgement. Knowledge is before
speech and action.

Then, Why should we seek knowledge ?

thinks about Allaah good and hopes in Him. He have trust and attach himself to Him. To correct our Akhlaaq with our
parents. Not to raise voice and being humble to them. To have manners with spouse.To have manners with children.To

what he prohibits.
