Our aim and objective in life is to recognize Allah and worship Allah. That can be achieved only by educating ourselves on recognizing Allah and how to worship Allah. Every engagement in life without pursuing the actual aim and objective in life through educating ourselves on Shariah is like an empty vessel. It is precisely for that reason, Rasulullah ﷺ encouraged the Ummat to acquire knowledge of Deen as it creates a feeling of fulfillment in a person.

 Rasulullah ﷺ said;

طَلَبُ الْعِلْمِ فَرِيضَةٌ عَلَى كُلِّ مُسْلِمٍ سنن ابن ماجه ت الأرنؤوط (1/ 151) “Seeking knowledge is compulsory on every muslim” (Sunan Ibn Majah, Vol 1, Pg 151, Daru Risalatil Aalamiyya)

In Another Hadith Rasulullah ﷺ said;  وَمَنْ سَلَكَ طَرِيقًا يَطْلُبُ بِهِ عِلْمًا سَهَّلَ اللَّهُ لَهُ طَرِيقًا إِلَى الجَنَّةِ صحيح البخاري (1/ 24) “The one who treads the path of knowledge, Allah will make his path to Jannah easy”(Saheeh Bukhari, Vol 1, Pg 24, Dar Tawq un Najah)

Seeking Islamic education has never been easier than in this era of online technology. It gives every person an opportunity to educate himself according to his worldly engagements. Many Sahaba (Radi allahu anhum) used to be engaged in their mundane activities. They used to make private arrangements with their neighbours and friends to attend the gathering of Rasulullah ﷺ and share information of Deen with each other.

Today too, there are many adults who are engaged in their mundane activities. They have to work and earn an income. It is difficult for them to take out time during their mundane activities to educate themselves in Shariah. Some people can spare time only on weekends. They search for ideal opportunities to educate themselves in Shariah.

It is pleasing to note the launch of the Shariah Online University by my son, Mufti Ismail Desai (Hafizahullah). This Online University is an ideal opportunity for the working class people to educate themselves on various aspects of the Shariah.

It is my fervent dua that Allah accept the noble efforts of Mufti Ismail Desai (Hafidhahullah) and grant the Shariah Online University success and acceptance in the court of Allah. Aameen.
