Education is a very important aspect of human life. It causes human development and takes man to the height of success. Education reforms the societies by positive social change. All the scientific and industrial development in the world is due to education. Moreover, it is the education which opens the minds of people and teaches them certain moral values. Certainly, education guides man to do what is good and avoid what is wrong. In the religion of Islam, there is great importance attached with the education. Thus, there are many ahadith and Quran verses about education that tell us about importance of education in Islam.

Quran Verses about Education:

Quran is a great book of guidance that guides us about all the matters of life. It is a comprehensive holy book that has the solution for all our problems. Learning and teaching Quran is also getting and giving education about the Holy Quran. Also, there are many Quran verses about education that are as mentioned below. These Quranic verses will clear our perspectives of what Islam says about education and getting knowledge.

  • “Read! In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists), Has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood). Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, Who has taught (the writing) by the pen [the first person to write was Prophet Idrees (Enoch)], Has taught man that which he knew not.” (Quran, 96:1-5)

Ahadith about Education:

There is also a mention of education and getting knowledge in the sayings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAWW). The Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) himself was a great teacher who taught to his companions and via ahadith and Sunnah, Muslims today take guidance in the matters of life. However, following are the sayings of Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) about education or getting the knowledge;

  • It was narrated by Ibn Mas`ud: “I heard the Prophet (SAWW) saying, “There is no envy except in two: a person who God has given wealth and he spends it in the right way, and a person whom Allah has given wisdom (i.e. religious knowledge) and he gives His decisions accordingly and teaches it to the others. ” (Sahih al-Bukhari, 1409)
  • The Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) said: “The seeking of knowledge is obligatory for every Muslim.” (Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 74)
  • Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) said: “Acquire knowledge and impart it to the people.” (Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 107)

Thus, the above mentioned ahadith and Quran verses about education and getting knowledge show the significance of education in Islam. It is very important for Muslims to get the Islamic knowledge and education. However, it is also important for them to get the knowledge and education about this world too. For instance, it is important to learn Quran and study science too if you have interest in science; however, one should never gain knowledge which is against Islam. Lastly, knowledge is power which we can be taken by education, thus, we should never miss any chance to educate ourselves.
