Assalaamu alaikum [Peace be to you],
Education has been greatly emphasized in Islam. The first verse of the Qur’an to be revealed to the Prophet Mohammed -peace be upon him- indicates the importance of education in Islam; the verse started with the word “Iqra’
”, it is a command that means "read" in Arabic, and that implies the concepts of ‘learning’, ‘exploring’ and ‘seeking enlightenment'. This demonstrates that reading (knowledge) is the way to approach the Creator of a ll that exists.
the God, Exalted be He, says:
In the name of the God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
اقْرَأْ بِاسْمِ رَبِّكَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ
Iqra' in the name of your Lord who created
خَلَقَ الْإِنسَانَ مِنْ عَلَقٍ
Created man from a clinging substance.
اقْرَأْ وَرَبُّكَ الْأَكْرَمُ
Recite, and your Lord is the most Generous
الَّذِي عَلَّمَ بِالْقَلَمِ
Who taught by the pen
عَلَّمَ الْإِنسَانَ مَا لَمْ يَعْلَمْ
Taught man that which he knew not.translation of verses 96:1-5
Hence, Muslims believe that Allah created humanity and commanded that they seek knowledge in order to understand more about the world, to know more about the God and to become stronger in their faith. The importance of education has been emphasized repeatedly in the Qur’an, which is the ultimate source of guidance for Muslims. for example, verse 20:114 says,
وَقُل رَّبِّ زِدْنِي عِلْمًا
and say, "My Lord, increase me in knowledge."
This verse indicates that whatever we know is limited as we need to keep asking Allah to increase our knowledge. Therefore, a Muslim should constantly be seeking more knowledge (ilm). The Qur’an treats knowledge as a means to reaching iman (faith) for all Muslims, males and females, to becoming true believers. This is demonstrated in the following verses:
يُؤْتِي الْحِكْمَةَ مَن يَشَاءُ ۚ وَمَن يُؤْتَ الْحِكْمَةَ فَقَدْ أُوتِيَ خَيْرًا كَثِيرًا ۗ وَمَا يَذَّكَّرُ إِلَّا أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ
He gives wisdom to whom He wills, and whoever has been given wisdom has certainly been given much good. But none remember except men of understanding.translation of 2:269
قُلْ هَلْ يَسْتَوِي الَّذِينَ يَعْلَمُونَ وَالَّذِينَ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ ۗ إِنَّمَا يَتَذَكَّرُ أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ
Say, "Are those who know equal to those who do not know?" But only men of understanding will pay heed.translation of 39:9
The hadith of the last Prophet of Islam -peace be upon him- also emphasise the value of knowledge.
he -peace be upon him- said:"The seeking of knowledge is obligatory for every Muslim."
and“One who treads a path in search of knowledge has his path to Paradise made easy by God…”
and"God, His angels and all those in Heavens and on Earth, even ants in their hills and fish in the water, call down blessings on those who instruct others in beneficial knowledge."
He also said:"The learned are the heirs of the Prophets, and the Prophets leave (no monetary inheritance), they leave only knowledge, and he who takes it takes an abundant portion"
he also said:“When a man dies, his deeds come to an end, except for three: A continuous charity, knowledge by which people derive benefit and a pious son [or daughter] who prays for him.”
Therefore, in the Qur’an and hadith, the importance of education is explicit; in Islam seeking education is obligatory, and that knowledge is considered to be the path towards greater closeness to Allah.
