‘Increase me in knowledge’

BismilLAH ir-Rahman ir-Rahim

Yesterday, I was privileged to catch a TV program with Dr Fatma El Zahraa, where the topic was on ILMU (Knowledge). It was very enlightening (I regret not attending any of her classes at Taman TAR mosque), Dr Fatma’s way of talking to her audience was so gentle and welcoming.

In the program, she helped the audience see just how necessary it is to always seek knowledge. She made a reference to an ayat in Al Quran where ALLAH subhana wa ta’ala told us that a person who is ignorant (has the ability to seek knowledge but chooses not to-my definition) is like a person dead. She repeated a simple du’a several times which made me realise that it is a du’a I can recite constantly. It was ‘Rabbi  zidnii ilma’ (Oh, ALLAH, increase me in knowledge)- Surah Ta Ha, verse 114.

So, I’m starting my day with this du’a with the hope that I will learn something new that is beneficial to me and the ummah every day, Insha’ALLAH.
