The Importance and Priority of Seeking Knowledge

In this reminder, Shaykh Yahya Rhodus counsels on how to seek sacred knowledge.

He particularly emphasizes making seeking knowledge a priority and taking everything in life as a learning opportunity.

He looks at the four components of learning: a teacher, intelligence, correct books, and perseverance.

Shaykh Yahya gives specific suggestions on making time for knowledge, and offers guidelines on how to review and process one’s notes and dealing with boredom when studying.

He closes by emphasizing the importance of the foundations throughout one’s life.

Branches of Faith - 08: Nurturing the Tree of Faith & Institution Building

Shaykh Yahya Rhodus shares his viewpoint that in this phase of North American Islam, the most important priority is institution building and conveying the Prophetic inheritance.

He reflects on the idea of the Tree of Faith as a metaphor from institution building.

Beginning with the seed of faith, he draws links between nurturing the soil of the heart and modern destructive overfarming practices which produce dead soil.

Shaykh Yahya talks about nurturing our hearts, and how, just as trees don’t bear fruit overnight, nor do institutions: the results of one's service might not appear for generations.

He closes giving a few more insights related to the metaphorical Tree of Faith and shared meanings with the natural tree. ---

This is part of the series presented in Ramadan 2018: "Branches of Faith: The Virtues and Fruits of Faith".

It is narrated that Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "Faith is seventy some branches".

In this series some of the leading scholars will cover and explain the different branches of faith, as they have come in the works of the Islamic tradition.

The branches of faith include (1) branches of belief and certitude, (2) branches of spiritual works, and (3) branches of social excellence.

Knowledge & Sacrifice Build Muslim Communities

Shaykh Yahya Rhodus at the SeekersGuidance Canada: New Home Benefit Luncheon.

Help Us Establish Our New Learning Centre and Headquarters in Toronto: https://www.seekersguidance.org/newhome/

In this keynote address delivered at SeekersGuidance's New Home benefit luncheon, Shaykh Yahya Rhodus explains the crucial role knowledge plays in bringing communities to life and the importance of sacrifice to spread knowledge.

Shaykh Yahya begins by reading a memorandum on the state of our community and the challenges its leaders face, explaining how it fits into the agenda set by their illuminated teachers: “If you can’t plow seeds, so plow the land so that it is fertile enough for the next generation to plant seeds.”

He also draws attention to the vision, foresight, and sacrifice of SeekersGuidance's founder Shaykh Faraz Rabbani.

Next, Shaykh Yahya stresses the importance of knowledge and religious education, necessary for wholistic Islamic living in the world today. He highlights the importance of building and laying foundations, and the crucial role of institutions like SeekersGuidance in preserving the wellbeing of the community.

Shaykh Yahya closes by reminding that knowledge is the number one way to bring a heart, family, community, and society to life. Knowledge should be an excuse for other things, not vice versa. We should make knowledge a priority—not only in seeking it, but in supporting initiatives spreading the knowledge which gives one one’s orientation in life.
