In Islam there is nothing that has been emphasized upon more than seeking knowledge. Several verses of the Holy Qur`an talk about knowledge and the status of knowledgeable people. In fact, the first command given to the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) was to read. It is only through knowledge that one can worship Allah (S.W.T.) correctly, and even the Holy Qur`an explains clearly that it is only those with knowledge that fear Allah (S.W.T.)
