Benefit: Seeking knowledge is not done by relaxation of the body-Ash Shaykh Abdul Kareem al Khudayr


[Taken from the website of the Shaykh under the collection of benefits]

Ash Shaykh Abdul Kareem al Khudayr mentioned that seeking knowledge is not done by relaxation of the body but by exerting one’s efforts full into this knowledge. It is by wearing out or tiring one’s body. We do this even in working(seeking rizq for our families and ourselves) so how could seeking this blessed knowledge(which is more virtuous) be sought by relaxing and playing?

From the virtues of Tawhid: “And among its virtues is that it is the greatest means of removing the sorrows of this world and the Hereafter, and warding off punishment in both worlds. It is because of its virtues that one is forbidden from eternity in the Fire - provided that his heart contains a mustard seed’s equivalent amount of it - and if it is complete in his heart, then it will prevents him from ever entering the Fire at all.

Indeed the knowledge of tawheed, O reader, is that knowledge which all the Prophets were honored with, and with it they assaulted falsehood, ignorance, and shirk. So ignorance of this knowledge, the knowledge carried by the Prophets, which guides to the truth and saves from misguidance and shirk, ignorance of this is fatal and a deadly poison which kills the intellect and the ability to think.

When it comes to memorizing then know that there is no ‘amazing’ ‘new’ ‘innovative’ way, or method. It’s repetition. That simple. Whether you choose to repeat it 20 times or 200 times a day, just strive to do something everyday.

May Allah aid us in striving in this ilm
