In the name of Allah , the Beneficent,
“…Allah will raise those who have believed among you and those who were given knowledge, by degrees. And Allah is acquainted with what you do”
Surat Al-Mujadila [58:11]
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his progeny) said:
“If one sets out on a journey to seek knowledge Allah will lead him to the way that would take him to paradise. The angels will stretch their wings for the pleasure of the seeker of knowledge and all that is in the heavens and earth even the whales in the oceans will ask forgiveness for him (from Allah). The excellence of the scholar over other people is like that of [the light of ] the moon over other stars during a full-moon night. The scholars are the heirs of the prophets. The prophets did not leave any Dirham or Dinar (wealth) as their legacy but they did leave knowledge as their legacy. Whoever acquires a share from such legacy has gained a very large share.’"
