Education


Without education a human is incomplete. Islam has always emphasized on education, and also it is encouraged by Allah Tal’a in Quran. The first verses of the Quran began with the word “Iqra”, which means to read. The Holy Prophet ﷺ has said: "Attainment of knowledge is a must for everyone.” Imam Ali (R.A.) has emphasized the importance of education in these words: “The most valuable treasure is knowledge and wisdom, and the worst misfortune is ignorance”.

According to one tradition of Hadith, “the ink of a scholar’s pen is more precious than the blood of a martyr”, the reason being that while a martyr is engaged in the task of defence, and an alim (scholar) builds individuals and nations along positive lines. In this way, he bestows upon the world a real life treasure. This great emphasis placed on exact knowledge resulted in the awakening of a great desire for learning among the Muslims of the first phase. This process began in Makkah, then reached Medina and Damascus, later concentrated on Baghdad. Ultimately it entered Spain. Spain flourished, with extraordinary progress made in various academic and scientific disciplines. This flood of scientific progress then entered Europe, ultimately ushering in the modern, scientific age.

As per the life and conduct of our prophet ﷺ Khwaja Moinuddin (R.A.) travelled across the globe in search of knowledge. One can see his travel map and places where he travelled and set in the company of great Walis and good men of conduct.

Our vision is to spread the light of education far and wide, especially to introduce Sufi way of life in the curriculum. So that, our future generations learn religious tolerance, love for humanity and empathy towards creations. They also become researchers and free thinkers in this world, value humanity above all.

The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ encouraged all Muslims to acquire knowledge and share it. He said:

"Acquire knowledge, for he who acquires it in the way of Allah performs an act of piety; he who speaks of it, praises the Lord; he who seeks it, adores Allah; he who dispenses instruction in it, bestows alms; and he who imparts it to others, performs an act of devotion to Allah." (Bukhari, Muslim)
