Emulating the Prophet s.a.w.: Encouragement to Seek Knowledge

  • Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. is the Messenger of Allah sent as a mercy to humankind. Hence, every believer should strive to emulate the Prophet in all aspects of his life. We can achieve this by learning and reflecting upon the life of the Prophet and understanding the lessons from the prophetic tradition. All of these are guidelines for us to achieve success in this world and in the hereafter.



  • This prophetic guidance in seeking knowledge is even more relevant nowadays, due to the current uncertain economic climate. Some of us might have been forced to make certain adjustments. Adjustments in our expenditures, in our plans as well as our needs and priorities.



  • Apart from increasing our faith in Allah, such situation teaches us to always be prepared to adapt and adjust. This is because life will continue to throw challenges at us. And those who believe in Allah will strive to find a way out.
