resources for the thinkers and seekers

Seeking knowledge is a fundamental form of worship in Islam. The Quran explains that we must know our Creator through the ayat (signs) in the natural world around us and by the systems we witness. The first words uttered by the arch angel Gabriel to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) were:

 
(In the Name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace)
 
READ, in the name of your Sustainer who has created    -   created humankind out of a germ-cell!   -  READ, for your Sustainer is the Most Bountiful One  -   who has taught the use of the pen   -   taught humankind what it did not know
 
Quran 96: 1 - 5
