Rabbee Zidnee ‘Ilma

 رَّبِّ زِدْنِي عِلْمًا Those who know this du’aa from their childhood and are in the habit of making this du’aa very often are immensely fortunate.

By teaching this du’aa, parents and teachers in fact connect their children with knowledge and the Source of all knowledge.  And this connection stays till a person’s last breath. Subhanallaah!

Affectionately taught by man’s very First Teacher – Allah – to man’s Last Prophetic-Teacher, Prophet Muhammad (sal-lal-laahu-alahi-wa-sallam), this du’aa is highly meaningful:  Continue reading

True Wisdom: The Source of abundant favours

By Dr. Muzammil H. Siddiqui

[Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth extol Allah, the King, the Superb Holy, the Ever-Mighty, the Ever-Wise. He is the One Who has sent forth among the illiterate a Messenger from among them, to recite His signs to them, and to cleanse them, and to teach them the Book and the Wisdom, though they were earlier indeed in evident error. And (He has sent him to) others of them who have not yet joined them; and He is the Ever-Mighty, the Ever-Wise. That is the Grace of Allah; He grants it to whomever He decides; and Allah is the Owner of the Ever-Magnificent Grace.] (Al-Jumu`ah 62:1-4)

[He gives wisdom to whom He wills, and he to whom wisdom is given has truly received abundant good. But none remembers except people of understanding.] (Al-Baqarah 2:269)
