Islamic Tips For Students

Learning is a continuous process it starts with birth and ends with the death. We spend all of our life in learning either we know it or not. With the passage of time, people grow in age as well as in experience. Sometimes they learn through the life itself and sometimes they learn from the learned i.e. teachers.

In this way we all are students of time and we have to learn, so it is better if we learn well. Learning is the process of extracting useful information from the things that we see daily. This useful information is called knowledge. There are two types of knowledge, the divine knowledge i.e. the knowledge given to us by ALLAH swt through HIS scriptures and the worldly knowledge that people have learned from their experiences in life. The later depends on the former.

In the very beginning of the world, there was no worldly knowledge. Prophet Adam a.s. did what He a.s was told by ALLAH swt. later on with the growing population and moving away from the divine message people lost themselves into the world and they found knowledge which they seldom used for good. But it does not mean the worldly knowledge is bad. It can also be used for good, for the goodness of humanity.

Today, the process of learning has grown to a level where education is a must in every society. So we see students around us who start their learning from young age and some continue to learn till their last breath. Students are often found tensed and troubled for their studies. Sometimes they say they cannot memorize, sometimes they find some subjects difficult to understand and there are so many other problems.

First and the most important thing is, we students need to pray for our knowledge and for that we could use it for only well. Secondly we should be very honest with our studies. Cheating and dishonest passing of exams will do well for a while but it will be proven destructive in the long run. There is no place for cheaters in islam. No matter what situation we are in, we should not tell lies keeping in view the situation and we cannot cheat and be dishonest with others.

The ultimate knowledge is wit ALLAH swt only. There is no other being that can claim to be of unlimited knowledge. this should be kept in mind and this wil ease the tension that why we are not good at some subjects.

ALLAH swt says in Quran: [011:047]
قَالَ رَبِّ إِنِّىٓ أَعُوذُ بِكَ أَنۡ أَسۡـَٔلَكَ مَا لَيۡسَ لِى بِهِۦ عِلۡمٌ۬‌ۖ وَإِلَّا تَغۡفِرۡ لِى وَتَرۡحَمۡنِىٓ أَڪُن مِّنَ ٱلۡخَـٰسِرِينَ

Noah said: "O my Lord! I do seek refuge with Thee, lest I ask Thee for that of which I have no knowledge. And unless thou forgive me and have Mercy on me, I should indeed be lost!"
Students should recite the underline dua often.

فَتَعَـٰلَى ٱللَّهُ ٱلۡمَلِكُ ٱلۡحَقُّ‌ۗ وَلَا تَعۡجَلۡ بِٱلۡقُرۡءَانِ مِن قَبۡلِ أَن يُقۡضَىٰٓ إِلَيۡكَ وَحۡيُهُ ۥ‌ۖ وَقُل رَّبِّ زِدۡنِى عِلۡمً۬ا

High above all is God, the King, the Truth! Be not in haste with the Quran before its revelation to thee is completed, but say, "O my Lord! advance me in knowledge."

قَالَ رَبِّ ٱشۡرَحۡ لِى صَدۡرِى وَيَسِّرۡ لِىٓ أَمۡرِى وَٱحۡلُلۡ عُقۡدَةً۬ مِّن لِّسَانِى يَفۡقَهُواْ قَوۡلِى

(Moses) said: "O my Lord! expand me my breast; Ease my task for me; And remove the impediment from my speech, So they may understand what I say”.

Put all your trust in ALLAH and do not hesitate to admit that we cannot be perfect in everything.
