Our Prophet (SAW) said: “Knowledge, enables the possessor to distinguish right from wrong; it lights the way of heaven; it is our friend in the desert, our companion when friendless; it guides us to happiness; it sustains us in misery, it is our ornament amongst friends and an armor against enemies.”

Allah (SWT) said: “O my Lord! Advance me in knowledge.” (Qur’an 20: 114)

The very first word in Islam is the word “Read” (Qur’an 96:1), a very important and valuable word in education and training. This is the very first command given to Prophet Muhammad (SAW), a man who did not know how to read but who afterward rose up to the pinnacle of educatedness and wisdom. It is this first word that spurred him to show people the importance of knowledge and skills in life.

It is normal among people to insist on coherence and harmony. People know that differences between people can be wildering when confronted with these differences. It might also lead to bitter conflicts and discrepancies. However, it is customary among people to seek agreement from others as well. On the other hand, one forgets to force himself to agree with others and have harmony with them in the same fashion.
