We commend you on your desire to seek and propagate the sacred knowledge.

Da’wah is of utmost importance and a duty of every Muslim. Everyone is responsible to do Da’wah to his/her personal capacity.

We recommend that you read the following two publications, which provides a holistic overview on the status and rank of the student, the purpose of seeking sacred knowledge, and innumerable advices for the student that, if imbued into your lifestyle and daily routine, will be a source of immense blessing in your intellectual and spiritual endeavours, and a means of success in both worlds, inshāAllah:

We recommend that you seek the required sacred knowledge of the Qur'ān and Sunnah under the guidance and tutorship of reliable and qualified [i]Ulamā[/i] (Islamic scholars) from [i]Ahlus-Sunnah was Jama’ah[/i]. Thus you are able to seek guidance and refer questions if and when they arise.

We pray that the Almighty guides you towards beneficial knowledge and keeps you firm on the straight path.

[b]And Allah Ta’āla knows best [/b]
