Welcome to Seekers of Knowledge

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Allah the Almighty says: "Allah will exalt those who believe among you, and those who have been granted knowledge, to high ranks." (Quran 58:11)

And He, glorified be He, also says: "Indeed, those who fear Allah among His servants are the knowledgeable." (Quran 35:28)

And He, majestic and exalted, says: "Say, 'Are those who know equal to those who do not know?' Only they will remember [who are] people of understanding." (Quran 39:9)

Safwan ibn 'Assal al-Muradi reported: I came to the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) while he was reclining in the mosque upon a cloak of his, so I said to him: "O Messenger of Allah, I have come seeking knowledge." He replied:

"Welcome to the seeker of knowledge."

Narrated by Abu Sa'id al-Khudri, the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

"People will come to you seeking knowledge; when you see them, say: 'Welcome, welcome, to the inheritance of the Messenger of Allah.' Teach them."

I asked the narrator (one of the transmitters): "What does 'teach them' mean?" He replied: "Educate them."

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) also said:

"Verily, the scholars are the inheritors of the prophets. The prophets did not leave behind dinars or dirhams, but rather, they left behind knowledge. Whoever receives it has received an abundant share."

And he (peace be upon him) also said: "Whoever Allah intends good for, He grants him understanding in the religion."

Indeed, the sciences of Sharia, dear reader, are the legacy of prophethood. The prophets did not inherit dinars or dirhams; rather, they inherited knowledge. And according to each person's share of it, so will be their share of the inheritance of the Prophet (peace be upon him). Thus, seeking knowledge is the most precious thing for which lifetimes are spent, the best thing for which money and wealth are spent, and lands and homes are left behind for it. Know that the angels lower their wings for the seeker of knowledge, pleased with what he does. Allah, Glorious and Exalted, has intended goodness for those who embark on this path, and by His grace, He has facilitated the means for those who seek it, making it easy to fulfill this noble act of worship and obedience—seeking knowledge.

Abu ad-Darda' (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) saying: "Whoever travels a path in search of knowledge, Allah will make easy for him a path to Paradise. Verily, the angels lower their wings out of pleasure for the seeker of knowledge. Indeed, everyone in the heavens and on earth, even the fish in the sea, seek forgiveness for the scholar. The superiority of the scholar over the worshiper is like the superiority of the full moon over all other heavenly bodies. Indeed, scholars are the heirs of the prophets; the prophets did not leave behind dinars or dirhams, but rather, they left behind knowledge. Whoever takes hold of it has taken hold of a vast share."

If you want to know your status with Allah, look at what you stand up for. So establish yourself where you aspire your status to be.

Here we are announcing to Muslims the establishment of the Islamic Sciences Foundation - FiT in 2016, adorned with a new beautiful attire. It sets out on a mission to spread pure Islamic jurisprudence in the vast fertile land of Allah, taking Europe as its launching point. Thus, it aims to follow in the footsteps of the righteous predecessors from the noble companions who learned this methodology from the Prophet (peace be upon him). They left their city, spreading his knowledge and guidance, paving the way for his noble message in the farthest corners of the earth. This was the practice of the followers of the companions, and those who followed them among the scholars and righteous callers, until our present day, may Allah be pleased with them all. They chose the path of spreading the teachings of Islam and teaching the concepts of this great religion through every available means. We ask Allah Almighty to accept from all of us. In such moments, we can only embody the words of the Prophet (peace be upon him) to sincere and earnest seekers of knowledge: "Welcome to the seeker of knowledge. So welcome and greetings to you all."
