Attainment of Knowledge

“Read! In the Name of your Lord Who has created (all that exists). He has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood). Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous. Who has taught(the writing) by the pen. He has taught man that which he knew not” (H.Q. 96: 1-5)
“Elevated status is accorded to those who seek, possess, teach and act upon knowledge. Dismiss any thought of equality between those who know and those who do not” (H.Q. 39:9)
Who remember Allah, standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and contemplate the creation of the heavens and the earth (with the thought) “Our Lord! Not for nothing have You created (all) this. Glor”Verily in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of night and day – there are indeed signs for men of understanding; Men who remember y to You! Give us salvation from the suffering of the Fire.”(H.Q. 3:190-191)
“Say: Travel through the earth and see how Allah originated creation; so will Allah produce the second creation (of the Afterlife): for Allah has power over all things.” (29:20)
Prophet Muhammad had exhorted his followers to “seek knowledge even if it is in China,” which implies that a Muslim is duty-bound to search for knowledge
During “GOLDEN AGE OF ISLAM” (6TH TO 11TH CENTURY), The Muslims at the time were influenced by Quranic injunctions and hadith such as “The ink of the scholar is more holy than the blood of martyrs”
