  • Men Scholars: The Messenger of Allaah ﷺ said: ‘Whoever treads a path due to which he seeks knowledge, Allaah will make him tread one of the paths towards Paradise. And the angels lower their wings out of contentment for the seeker of knowledge. And verily all those in the heavens and in the earth, even the fish in the depths of the sea ask forgiveness for the scholar. And verily, the virtue of the scholar over the worshipper is like the virtue of the moon on the night of Al-Badr over all of the stars. Indeed, the scholars are the inheritors of the prophets, for the prophets do not leave behind a dinar or a dirham for inheritance, but rather, they leave behind knowledge. So whoever takes hold of it, has acquired a large share (i.e. of inheritance).’” (Reported by Abu Dawood, At-Tirmidhee and Ibn Hibbaan and Al-Bukhaaree.)
  • Women Scholars: The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said: “ …and certainly the scholars are the inheritors of the Prophets and the Prophets did not leave wealth as an inheritance, they only left behind knowledge, so whoever takes from it, has taken an abundant portion…” (Reported by Abu Dawood, At-Tirmidhee and Ibn Hibbaan and Al-Bukhaaree.)

'Amr withdrew his hand. The Prophet ﷺ said: "What has happened to you, O 'Amr?" He replied, "I intend to lay down a condition.” The Prophet ﷺ asked: "What condition do you intend to put forward?" 'Amr said, “That God forgive my sins.” The Prophet ﷺ said: "Didn’t you know that converting to Islaam erases all previous sins?" (Saheeh Muslim)
  • Reverts Women: {Nay! Whosoever submits his whole self to Allah and is a doer of good, he will get his reward with his Lord, on such shall have no fear, nor shall they grieve.} (Al-Qur'aan, 2:112)
