Wisdom of the Week (March 24, 2017):
Allah SWT said in Surah Al-Alaq:
"Read! In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists),
Has created man from a clot.
Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous,
Who has taught (the writing) by the pen,
Has taught man that which he knew not." (Al-Alaq, 1-5)
These verses are the first Quranic verses revealed to Prophet Muhammad (SAW)
in the cave of Hira. At first glance, you will find that the first word
being revealed is "Iqra", which means "Read!". This is the indication for
us to seek knowledge of the religion.
The Prophet (SAW) said:
"When Allah wishes good for someone, He bestows upon him the understanding of Deen." (Bukhari)
From these verses and the hadeeth of our beloved Prophet (SAW), we
understand that we must practice according to the Quran and the teachings
of our Prophet Muhammad (SAW) so we will be close to Allah SWT.
So we ask all in the community to engage in studying their deen.
