CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION
1.1         BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
In the name of Allah the most beneficent and most merciful all praise is due to Allah who is the most Gracious. He created with his absolute power the earth and the heavens and set right the affairs of the universe with his exclusive wisdom. May the salutations and blessing of Allah be upon the last Prophet Muhammad, (S.A.W) his family and relatives and all those who followed his Sunnah rightly to the day of resurrection.

Islam is a religion of peace and tranquility, a religion that gives emphasis to knowledge. Allah told the Prophet (S.A.W) to seek from the increase in knowledge in the following verse;

And   say   oh!   My   lord   advances   me   in
knowledge1.

Verily, the basic need of anyone who desire salvation from worship of Allah is to acquire knowledge and acquaintance as this is the origin of everything on which depends all success knowledge is required before worship, this is because worship without knowledge is just like tree without fruits. Knowledge is superior to worship because the Prophet (S.A.W) had said in a Hadith:

An Alim (a learned man) is superior to a

worshipper, just as I am superior to you2.

This is so, considering the first five verses of the Qur’an revealed to the Prophet

Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) where he was directed to read.


Proclaim!  (or  read!)  In  the  name  of  thy

lord and cherisher, who created

Created   man,   out   of   a   (mere)   clot    of

congealed blood

Proclaim! And thy lord is most bountiful

He who taught (the use of) the pen,

Taught man that which he knew not

The Qur’an has in many places indicates the superiority of men of knowledge

over the ignorant,3  what happened between Angels and Prophet Adam (AS) is a good

example and categorically a real testimony of the position of knowledge and the scholars

in Islam4.

Behold, thy lord said to the angels: I will
create a vicegerent on earth. They said: will
thou   place   therein    one   who   will    make
mischief therein and shed blood? Whilst we
do celebrate thy praises and glorify thy holy

(name)?

“He said,” I know what ye know not.

In another Hadith of the Prophet says:


Should I tell you who the best dwellers of
paradise are? The noble companions (R.A)

said: “yes, oh messenger of Allah He (S.A.W)

said: they are the Ulama of my Ummah5”.

So know (O Muhammad (S.A.W) that lai’laha
illallah (none has the right to be worshipped
but Allah)6.

Imam Bukhari, stated and explained that Almighty Allah commands his apostle to

first  seek  for  knowledge.  The  Prophet  (peace  and  blessing  of  Allah  be  upon  him)

emphasized the need to acquire knowledge to the extent that he made it obligatory upon

all believers before they perform any act of worship. The Prophet (S.A.W) says....
