Importance of Education In Islam
The importance of education has been emphasized repeatedly in the Qur’an, which is the ultimate source of guidance for Muslims. Allah say’s in the following Verse 20:114 “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. The Qur’an treats knowledge as a means to reaching Iman (faith) for all Muslims, males and females, to becoming true believers.
Allah say’s in the following verse. (Verse 2:269) “Allah grants wisdom to whom He pleases and to whom wisdom is granted indeed he receives an overflowing benefit.”
The Ahadith of Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) also emphasize the value of knowledge. As the following Hadith narrated by Abu Hurrairah notes: “When a man dies, his acts come to an end, but three, recurring charity, or knowledge (by which people benefit), or a pious son, who prays for him (the deceased).” (Sahih Muslim: Book 12, Hadith 4005)
