By Sh Aa'idh Al-Qarni

"And Allah taught you that which you knew not. And Ever-Great is the Grace of Allah unto you [O' Muhammad]." (Qur'an I: 113) Ignorance kills one's conscience and soul.

Knowledge is a light that leads to wisdom. It is life for one's soul and fuel for one's character. Happiness and high-spiritedness come with enlightenment, because through knowledge, one may fulfill his goals and discover what was previously hidden from him. The soul, by its very nature, longs for the acquisition of new knowledge to stimulate it and the mind.

Ignorance is boredom and grief, because the ignorant person leads a life that never offers anything new or mind provoking. Yesterday is like today, which in turn is like tomorrow.

If you desire happiness, then seek out knowledge and enlightenment, and you will find that anxiety, depression, and grief will leave you. "Read! In the Name of your Lord, Who has created all that exists." (Qur'an 96)

The Prophet (Blessings and Peace be upon him) said: "If Allah wishes good for someone He gives him an understanding of the Religion."

Therefore if someone is ignorant, let him not be proud of either his wealth or his status in society: his life is lacking in meaning and his achievements are woefully incomplete.

How noble is enlightenment! And through it, how happy is the soul! Is he who is on a clear proof from his Lord, like those for whom their evil deeds that they do are beautified for them, while they follow their own lusts (evil desires) (Qur'an 47. 14)

The supervisor of my work section recently made a casual comment about my shaggy mane of hair.

He then went on to extol the virtues of a good haircut, which, he insisted, makes an elderly man look younger and a younger man seem more mature.

"How would a haircut make a middle-aged man like me appear?" I asked.

"Still employed," was his answer.
