اطلبوا العلم من المهد الى اللحد – Is there something to this?
Science is required from the cradle to the grave, Subhan Allah Islam really wants his followers to continue to demand Science. Striving for scientific knowledge has no geographical boundaries nor any age limit.
Without us knowing it, many things we can learn without having to sit in a formal school. From the cradle, even though we were babies, much to the gain of an infant, new things as well in getting to a mother.
Through the different stages when an infant becomes a toddler and the toddler becomes a child who can talk, walk and then become finally reaches adulthood …this process is the core of learning by growing.
Not only from life experiences we can learn a lot, it also comes from reading which opens the mind. So, read! Or IQRO, it was the first letter revealed to Prophet Mohammad saw which means to read!
Allah wants us to continue reading! And to never stop learning. And learning in this day and age doesn’t stop just with books. Now with technology you can learn anything you wish from any place in the world!
Masha Allah, technology has allowed all of us in this world to learn from the privacy of our own homes. This phenomenon erases ignorance – that is if, we utilize our time wisely. Learning isn’t just for children nor is it just for the wealthy, people from all walks of life have an obligation to learn. Be it from from formal schooling to apprenticing with experts – such as: seamstresses, midwives, doctors, lawyers, teachers and chefs. However, most importantly, technology has allowed us to listen, read and learn of the word of God (Quran) anywhere you may be. Quran’ can be found on this site under tools & resources, we can download our favorite Quran reciters along with our preferred language that translates the Quran making it easy to understand.
