Jihad: A Pursuit of Knowledge
Let me introduce you to 2 important Egyptians.
Meet 15 year old Omar Othman, he met Prime Minister Essam Sharaf in Cairo recently. Omar Othman is doing his masters now in Mathematics.
Meet the smartest kid in Egypt, 9 year old Mahmoud Wael Mahmoud is the talk of the town. His IQ score is that of a genius. He might join the Guinness Book of world records inshAllah. His parents are both doctors and he has two elder sisters. Part of being a genius is the atmosphere he is living in. Mahmoud wants to be either a doctor like his parents or a software programmer. Microsoft Egypt is interested in him, already.
May God help Muslims achieve ihsan (excellence) in every field of science, business and voluntary work to contribute to the progress of humanity and civilisation. The first command given, is Iqra which means read or seek knowledge.
Islam is the religion of science, knowledge, entrepreneurship and progress.
Do your scientific jihad for Islam. Dedicate your life to Islam by dedicating your life to science. Change the world with your accomplishments.
Make Muslims and Islam proud of you. Make the whole world proud of you.
Make knowledge the pursuit of your life. This is your Jihad, yes, your Jihad.
It is your Jihad as a parent to raise the most successful of children. This is your Jihad to gift the world with the best of progeny.
If you are a parent, please don't let Islam down, please help your children achieve their full potential. You can adopt a child and help it achieve its full potential. Maybe you can help and advise parents and families around you to raise successful children.
Do everything you can to help Muslims achieve the Islamic core value of ihsan (excellence). A Muslim man or woman shouldn't be average or mediocre. A Muslim should strive to be the best in every field of human endeavour.
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “The believer is like rain, wherever he goes is goodness.”
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH): “When a man dies, his acts come to an end, except in three cases: an ongoing charity, knowledge from which people continue to benefit, and a righteous child who prays for him.”
