Supplications for seeking Knowledge

Start every good work with the name of Allah. And then make dua. Invocation for seeking Knowledge is essential, as it is best among all good deeds. Entirely rely on Allah’s will in dua/ supplication. Seeking Knowledge is considered as a way of Prophets. While performing this pious job, we must ask for Allah Almighty’s help. Prophet (peace be upon him) said.

Whoever follows the path upon which to obtain knowledge, Allah will make the path to Jannah easy for him.

Jami At-Tirmidhi 2646 Book 41, Hadith 2.

Knowledge has two types:

  • Religious Knowledge
  • Worldly Knowledge.

Religious Knowledge is also known as the study of religion. So, it includes religious beliefs, behaviors, and institutions. Worldly Knowledge is the study of all other fields like science and the arts.

There is a misconception that invocation is only for religious knowledge. But this is not the case. Seeking Allah ‘s help and guidance through invocation is equally beneficial in both types of learning because both types are essential for Muslims.
