Bismillah wal hamdulillaah was salaatu was salaam ala rasuulillah
Assalamu alaykunna wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh
Abu Darda, radi Allahu anhu, said, 'The messenger of Allah, sal Allahu aleihi wa salam, said,
"He who takes a path in search of knowledge Allah will direct him to tread a path from the paths of Paradise. The angels lower their wings for the student of knowledge in approval of what he does. All in the heavens and the earth and the fish in the depts of the water seek forgiveness for the scholar, and the superiority of the scholar over the worshipper is like the superioty of the full moon at night over the rest of the stars. Verily the scholars are the inheritors of the prophets. Verily, the prophets did not bequeath dinars or dirmahs. All they left behind was the knowledge, so whoever takes it has indeed acquired a great fortune,"
(Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah. Declared sahih by Sheikh Al-Albani rahimahullah)
So we se that islamic knowledge is very important in Islam and this is for the men and women. It is easy for us, busy wives and mothers, to make excuses for not studying important subjects such as the Arabic language, correct aqeedah, tawhid, and biographies of the righteous. And yet it is we who are our childrens first and perhaps most influential teachers, so what we learn we will pass on to them, insh'Allah, assisting them and ourselves in righteousness and increasing their imaan.
"As you read these names and the comments and acomplishments of these students of knowledge, remind yourself that each one is a woman who, like you, has interests and obligations and family, and yet she takes the time to exert herself in seeking Islamic knowledge to benefit herself and others. Insh'Allah may this brief listing encourage Muslim women to do what they can to tread down the path of knowledge, that path which, as the hadith of Abu Darda relates, will lead her to tread down a path from the paths of Paradise."
Further on, they give a short description of some of the female students of Shaykh Muqbil (rahimahullah), where his daughter Umm Abdillaah and Umm Salamah (hafidhahumullah) are mentioned.
A sister was blessed to sit with Umm Salamah and shares her experience where you get an insight on how it is to take part of her lessons.
