Seeking Islamic Knowledge at University

Islamic Medical Association of Nottingha

Shall I start or can it wait?

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ


As students most of use feel like our time to seek knowledge will probably come once we’ve graduated or once we have a stable income or just once we pass the next milestone we’re working towards. But what if that time doesn’t come? What if our return to Allah is planned for before then?


The importance of seeking Islamic knowledge cannot be overstated. In first five verses revealed of the Qur’an, the word “اقـــــرأ” (read) is repeated twice, the word "قـــــلــــم" (pen) is mentioned once and the word "عــــلَّـم" (teach) is repeated twice.

In the following verses in Surah Al-‘Alaq. “Read in the name of your Lord Who created. He created man from a clot. Read and your Lord is the Most Honourable. Who taught by the pen. Taught man what he knew not.” (Qur’an 96:1-5)
