Acquiring knowledge of worldly sciences

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za


1. Is acquiring knowledge of the worldly sciences دنيوي علوم for example faradhul kifayah according to the Hanafi Madhab?

2. If so then a فرض is thabit by a dalil in which there is no شبهة i.e فطعي دليل . What is the qati dalil for this?

3. A منكر of a a fardh is classed as kafir. Will a person who rejects it be classed as kafir?

4. Will it be necessary to have belief of it being fardh? ( fardh’s ruling is الزوم علما و تصديقا بالقلب)


A: Worldly sciences are permissible to acquire provided there is no element of fitnah and evil therein.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
