139- Muath ibn Jabal ( R) said: the Messenger of Allah p.b.u.h. said: Acquire knowledge (of your religion) for acquiring it is fear of Allah, seeking it is an act of worship, memorizing it is glorification (of Allah), searching for it is jihad, teaching it to those who donít know it, is an act of charity; conveying it to its seekers, brings you closer to Allah; for it is the landmarks of the permissible and the prohibited, and the light house of the paths of the owners of Paradise. It (Knowledge of Islam) is the entertainer in desolation, the companion for the stranger, the teller in isolation, the guide in times of happiness and adversity, the weapon against enemies, and the ornament among friends. Through it (Islamic knowledge) Allah raises some people to be leaders for all that is good. Their footsteps are traced, their deeds are imitated and their views are sought. Angels seek their friendship, and with their wings they rub them and every wet and dry thing seeks forgiveness for them, even the fish in the sea and other marine animals, and the beasts of the wasteland and its cattle, for indeed religious knowledge is the life of the hearts against ignorance; it is the candles of eyesight against layers of darkness.

Through religious knowledge a devotee reaches the degree of righteous people and the lofty status in this life and the after life. Reflection on it is equivalent to fasting and discussing it is equal to religious vigil. Through it relations are joined and the permissible and the prohibited are known. It is the leader of actions and actions follow it. Fortunate people get it, and miserable ones are deprived of it. Abu Umar said: This is indeed a good tradition referring of course to its content and not to its degree of authenticity.

140- Abu Thar ( R ) said: the Messenger of Allah p.b.u.h. said: To emerge early in the morning and teach a verse from the Book (of Allah) is better for you than praying one hundred units (rakaa); and for you to emerge early in the morning and teach a chapter of Islamic knowledge whether it is put into practice or not, is better than praying one thousand Rakaa (prayer unit). (Reported by ibn-Majah)
