The Knowledge is Provisions from Allah
The Knowledge is Provisions from Allah. A precious benefit from the Noble Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allah have mercy upon him):
Allah the High stated:
ومن يتق الله يجعل له مخرجا ـ ويرزقه من حيث لا يحتسب
“And whoever fears Allah, He will make a way out for him (from every difficulty) and provide for him from where he didn’t perceive. (Surah 65:2-3)”
The Noble Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allah have mercy upon him) commented: That which is known, is that the attainment of the knowledge is from the best of the provisions. It is leaving from the restrictions of ignorance and its darkness into the vastness of knowledge and its light. Allah the High stated: “And whoever fears Allah, He makes for him ease in his affair.”
The attainment of the beneficial knowledge is from the greatest of the affairs of ease.
That’s because the student of the legislated knowledge reaches by way of his knowledge different aspects of good and the means of salvation which are not easy for the ignorant one (to reach).
