Success is something that every person strives for and wishes to gain in every area of his life.
Many a times this success is sought for in this world where people try and achieve higher positions and statuses, and many a times, due to the extreme effort we put into achieve materialistic things in this world we tend to neglect the hereafter.
Despite this trend, there are a few people chosen by Allah Himself that sacrifice many years of their life to learn the religion of Islam; people who choose to acquire status but only in the sight of Allah. These people believe they have acquired the greatest rank not only in the hereafter but also in this world because they believe that they are acquired the true wealth and riches.
It is a famouse Arabic saying:
الكتب اغلي من الذهب لمن معرف قدرها
“Books are more valuable than gold… for that person who recognises its value”
These people have recognised the value of these books and the knowledge contained within. They thrive on being the inheritors of the Prophet صلي الله عليه و سلم.
“The world, with all that it contains, is accursed except for the remembrance of Allah that which pleases Allah; and the religious scholars and seekers of knowledge.”
Not so far from now, a Graduation Ceremony will take place for those students of knowledge through which Allah has chosen to spread His religion.
All brothers and sisters are requested to attend this gathering and also bring along others.
Insha Allah this gathering will give us a little insight to the true riches and wealth that Allah has placed in this world.
May Allah accept efforts of all those students who are graduation and may He take work from us all for His religion. Aameen.
