Searching for Knowledge

"I constantly sought knowledge and truth, and it became my belief that for gaining access to the effulgence and closeness to God, there is no better way than that of searching for truth and knowledge.” - Ibn al-Haytham

I was really impressed by the quote above. Indeed, the best way to close to God by searching for truth and knowledge. Knowledge of islam is the truth which can save us in the worldly life and hereafter. Sometimes I think that there are so many things I want to reach in this life, but I personally want to add my islamic knowledge more and more. My ambitions constantly change. After I watched one recommended program on TV, I realized that learning and teaching islam are called Jihad too. It also adds my awareness that those ways are the way to be more closed to Allah swt. 

It suddenly came up on my mind that why I should choose another subject instead of islamic knowledge. Why I don't put Madinah or Cairo as the places to go for searching islamic knowledge in my list ambitions. There I can learn arabic language and probably can increase my iman. Why I should choose Europe, Australia, even America as the places to study in my dream lists. I don't know what obsess me. 

Yah, I still have a dream to visit those countries to learn islam and arabic. I dream to learn islamic education in International Islamic University of Malaysia for my doctoral degree. Hope Allah grants me. I actually prefer to learn and teach islam in college. I hope with that way I will be able to be more closed to God and as the evidence of my love to islam. I want to spread this religion as much as I can. I dream someday I can deliver islamic messages in lecturing. I want to introduce islam to kids even adults but I should enhance my knowledge more. And the first step is thalabul ilmi.

إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ وَأَهْلَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرَضِينَ حَتَّى النَّمْلَةَ فِي جُحْرِهَا وَحَتَّى الْحُوتَ لَيُصَلُّونَ عَلَى مُعَلِّمِ النَّاسِ الْخَيْرَ

"Verily Allah, His angels, inhabitants of the heavens and the earth were ants in the nest and the fish in the ocean also pray for the good of those who teach kindness to humankind" (Tirmidzi)
