A True Saying [Quote – 800]

Published Categorised as Quote-Unquote, Quote-Unquote – Book VIII (701-800)

The following saying is yet another proof that Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, is truly a prophet and messenger of God. He says:

A single learned individual is harder for the Devil to deal with than a thousand pious individuals devoted to a life of worship and penance. 

Do you think the Tabligh Jama’at people ever caught wind of this Hadith Sharif? Along with a number of other equally clear and powerful Hadith hitting the same theme of the importance of education and learning and knowledge in the life of individuals, nations and societies.

I am sure that Hadith is included in that wonderful book that they so diligently and regularly read in their meetings. 

Fazaa-il A’maal, is it? Allah bless Mowlana Zakariyya, I think it is his compilation, unless I am mistaken.

How about if they, for a change, focus a full Chilla entirely on reading and mastering the section of that book that is devoted to Ilm or Knowledge

Not “Religious” or “Sacred” knowledge, but simply “Knowledge” — from math to language to history to science to everything else including the Qur’an, Hadith and Fiqh.

They will be doing themselves — and the whole world — a big favor.
