Why you should learn anything
There is not so much as important as seeking knowledge and gaining it. No actions can be done without knowledge, new knowledge cannot be acquired without knowledge of what to learn, basically, knowledge is where everything starts.One basically cannot do what one does not know how to do.
The importance of knowledge is emphasized in several places in the Quran and in the hadith of the prophet (peace be upon him). Ilm is mentioned about 105 times in the Quran while with its variations, there are about 600 mentions in the Quran.
One popular hadith of the prophet that points out the importance of knowledge seeking knowledge reads thus:
Tolabul ilm fareedotun ala kulli muslim wa muslimah
Seeking knowledge is obligatory on all muslims of both gender.
In the Quran, the almighty says:
Lakinirrasikhuna fil ilm minhum wal mumeenuna yumeenuna bimaa unzila ilayka wa maa unzila min qablika; wal muqimeena solata; wal mutuna zakata wal mumeenuna billahi wal yawmil akhiri ulaika sanutihim ajran aziman
However, those steadfast in knowledge in their midst and those who believe in what has been revealed to you and what was revealed prior to your existence. And those who establish solat and those who give zakat and those who believe in Allah and in the last day they will be rewarded greatly
The Quran verse highlights the reward that exists for those who are firm in knowledge while the hadith emphasizes the importance of seeking knowledge in Islam. As a Muslim, if one were to seek knowledge, what knowledge would be better than seeking the knowledge of the words of the Almighty Allah? What would be better than to Learn Quran?
The aforementioned hadiths and evidences from the Quran emphasize the importance of finding knowledge in Islam. How else does one search for knowledge if not by learning and learning from an authentic source.
